The introductory chapters focus on both the landscape and animal inhabitants, with a special emphasis on the spectacle of large-herd migration. Predators of the region are also featured, along with images of the raw energy and agitation they introduce to an otherwise pastoral scene. Bird life in the Serengeti is captured too, as are the vast weather systems that sweep across the plains. Through the evocative text and the striking images we are transported to this vibrant and awe-inspiring spectacle.
