With its untamed landscapes and unsurpassed bounty of wildlife, Africa has long fascinated us. Stanley and Livingstone tackled its manifold challenges, Karen Blixen made it her home and wrote about it in Out of Africa, and Ernest Hemingway's African adventures inspired much of his writing. At a time when our earth's fragile balance is in jeopardy, Africa is a more precious natural commodity than ever before.This stunning volume introduces readers to the rich and varied ecosystems of Africa through specially commissioned photographs that depict its diverse wildlife refuges and nature sanctuaries. Spectacular, large-scale colour photographs bring to life the pink flamingos of Nakuru Lake, the hippopotami of the Niger River, and the last remaining virgin forest, in Odzala in Congo, demonstrating the awe-inspiring beauty and inestimable significance of eco-regions across Africa.
