About this book

It is impossible to encompass the huge continent of Africa in just one book but African Odyssey gives the reader a superb flavour of what Africa has to offer in the the way of wildlife, travel, landscape, people and creature comforts.

As a wildlife photographer and film maker, Robin Taylor shows a keen eye for life around him expressing this superbly with both his fascinating, evocative, sometimes unorthodox images and highly descriptive words portraying in fine detail that vast wildlife stage found in Southern and Eastern Africa.

This book moves seamlessly through the great game areas - South Africa's Sabi Sand and Madikwe, Botswana's Okavango and Central Kalahari, the Victoria Falls and Lower Zambezi in Zambia, Semliki in Uganda, Selous in Tanzania and Kenya's famed Masai Mara. And the classic lodges and camps - Selati, Simbambili, Boma Ulanga, Deception Valley, Impalila and Susuwe, Tongabezi, Sausage Tree, Semliki, Governors', the Ker & Downey camps, Mala Mala and the intimate Notten's - all individual but each offering a warm taste of Africa.

Think of an animal you would like to see, from a hippo to a dung beetle to a wild dog and you will almost certainly find it in African Osyssey. Think of an unusual bird such as the Shoebill and it's here. Think of a superbly exotic location and you'll be on Livingstone Island on the very edge of Victoria Falls. This book has the 'feel and smell' of Africa as can only be shown by the passion of a photographer who lives and works on that continent.
