Synopsis

A guide offering a tribute to the greatness of Africa. It reminds us that while man may affect the Dark Continent, he will never tame it. Africa remains a place where the landscapes are vast, paying no heed to the horizon, where mountains soar to snowy and smoke-ringed peaks, rivers plunge in fury and drift in indolence, and deserts shimmer on a dust-dry, barren mirage. Within these settings, often hostile, always changing, and increasingly vulnerable, live the animals and tribal people of Africa. Wildest Africa captures the essence of the continent in its most natural, raw state. It features the power and presence of familiar game and larger animals, but also draws in the smaller species, reptiles and insects, and the indigenous people of the land, from tribal warriors to nomadic pastoralists. They are all an integral part of Africa. The range of the guide takes the reader to the turbulent lands of the Rift Valley in East Africa, the huge dry deserts of the Southwest, the rainforests of central Africa, the wetlands of the Zambezi River and Okavango Delta, and the contrasts of Southern Africa, where mountains and highveld push towards a long, rugged coastline.

In all of these, the wildness of Africa can be discovered, and combining the expertise, patience and determination of Africa's best wildlife photographers, Wildest Africa is able to reveal a world not seen and hardly realised by tourists and game viewers. The animals are depicted in moments of action, tenderness and savagery, the different settings caught in the glory of Africa's unique space and light and, leading the reader to them, the evocative text draws meaning and detail from the photographs, emphasising the enduring themes, mystery and allure of wild, and beautiful, Africa.
