About this book

An African safari is arguably one of the most alluring and universally understood dreams of contemporary time. Just the thought of an African safari is capable of evocations of adventure, a journey through nature's grandest spectacle, a glimpse of the earth before man. Peter & Beverly Pickford's African Safari is an exploration of all that the word `safari' encompasses, from journeys on horseback and dugout canoes and the quiet drifting of a balloon, the tension of silent waiting on foot to the smell of dung, the soil and the rain.

African Safari is an intimate odyssey through the great wilderness of Africa and an eye on its wild denizens, both human and animal, spiced with the echoes of a romantic history.
