About this book

Although for many visitors the Kalahari evokes images of winter game drives in a vast desert of thirsty red sands, it is the capricious summer landscape that has been luring painter and photographer Robert Grogan back to this region for more than 30 years. Together with his wife Lee, he has braved unpredictable, sometimes violent storms, impassable roads, fierce heat and humidity, insects and tall grass for the chance to paint the summer cloud banks and startling local transformations rendered by the rains. He has photographed, too, not just the iconic game, big cats and raptors, but also more transient delights of the season, like the butterflies, meadows of wildflowers and the springbok lambing season.

Gathered together for the first time in a vibrant collection, his landscape paintings and magnificent wildlife photographs bring the Kalahari's lush and beautiful summer season vividly to life.
