About this book

Wild Life: People and Animals of the Luangwa Valley is a book like no other. Not content with portraying the Luangwa Valley in pictures alone, François d'Elbée teamed up with well-known artist and writer Vic Guhrs to collaborate on an extensive exploration of the place that was until recently known in Safari circles as 'Africa's best-kept secret'.

The result is an intimate look at the people who have made it what it is today – the pioneers, the game rangers and safari operators and guides, and of course the animals that inhabit this 700 km long stretch of wilderness, the southernmost tip of Africa's Great Rift Valley.

François d'Elbée and Vic Guhrs are no strangers to the Valley. One a frequent visitor, the other a long-term resident, they have long known the Park's different moods, its high times and low, and its indefinable magic.

In Wild Life: People and Animals of the Luangwa Valley they invite you on their journey while they aim their cameras and notebooks at the Valley's residents, human and animal, looking for answers to the old questions: What is it about wilderness that enchants our souls, what do wild animals mean to us and why do we need to preserve them.
