Synopsis

The Selous Game Reserve in southern Tanzania is Africa's oldest and largest protected area. Proclaimed in 1896 and bigger than Switzerland, the Selous is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Selous remains one of Africa's largest and greatest undisturbed ecosystems, teeming with life including one of the two largest elephant populations remaining on the African continent, probably half of all of the wild dogs in Africa, vast herds of buffalo as well as more lions than any other protected area on the continent as reported by National Geographic in August 2013. The game reserve is becoming more important by the day as the pressure on elephants and other species grows - problems that are addressed here in this book. New York-born photographer Rob Ross has spent much of the past four years photographing in this vast and difficult to access reserve. He has compiled more than 100,000 images showing all aspects of the reserves varied landscapes, seasons, flora and large and small fauna.The spectacular large-format photography book features a selection of the very best images including landscapes, wildlife portraits and behaviour, night photography, impressionist style work and breath-taking aerials.

Rob's work has been published in National Geographic Adventure, National Geographic Traveler, Conde Nast Traveler, Getaway Magazine, Africa Geographic, Islands, Travel Africa and many other leading travel and environmental journals. Rob has also undertaken photographic assignments for the World Wildlife Fund(R), The Wildlife Conservation Society, and The Global Fund for Children. Rolf D.
