9781868254507: Best of African Wildlife

From arid desert to tropical swamp, vast grasslands to open bush, Africa is home to an abundant, greatly varied and often unique animal kingdom. Now explored and sadly often exploited, the magnificent African landscapes, and its wildlife, nevertheless remain in many places. "Best of African Wildlife" is a celebration of this great heritage. Here are the wonders of Africa's natural world, from the smallest of wildlife species to the "giants" of the animal kingdom in all their impressive glory. Rare and exotic birds mix with the hunters and scavengers of the bush, deadly mambas with creatures of the deep, leopards, lions and caracals with graceful herds of springbok and gazelle. In some 150 photographs, all submitted over the years as entries in annual wildlife photography competitions, this richness and diversity is shown to its best advantage. Each of the spectacular pictures, for its own special reason, catches and holds the attention - for the drama of the hunt and kill, the sheer beauty of an animal in flight or movement or the awesome grandeur of the landscape and the dignity of its inhabitants. Containing some of the finest wildlife photographs, this guide will excite the experienced as well as the aspiring photographer and will delight nature lovers and general readers everywhere. As a highly evocative record of African wildlife at its most majestic, it will perhaps also serve as an inspiration for the preservation of a natural heritage of international importance.
