About This Book
For thousand of travelers, "safari" means vacation memories of a lifetime. This stunning, 200-page tour brings the reader through the greatest safari regions of Africa. Animals, landscape, light, movement; these elements define a safari adventure. Yet in each corner of Africa, a different scenario unfolds. What makes an elephant look different at the base of Kilimanjaro from an elephant in the marshes of Okavango? Why does a lion on the plains of Masai Mara look nothing like his counterpart on the plains of Etosha? How is a camp pitched in Zambia different from a lodge built in Kenya? Safari shows us the many faces of African countries renowned for their safais: South Africa, Namibia, Zambia, Botswana, Kenya, and Tanzania. From the political stance adopted by the individual governments to the skills of the rangers, and from the standard of the accomodation to the configuration of space, each country in Africa, each landscape, each reserve offers a character, beauty, charm, atmosphere, and harmony all it's own.
