About this book

Savute, a region of the Chobe National Park, Botswana, is a wildlife destination like no other. Unpredictable, unforgiving and unfathomably diverse, this unique, constantly evolving environment illustrates Darwinism in its purest form and represents a never-ending battle for survival for its wild inhabitants. Its fortunes are governed by an extreme cycle of flood and drought which has resulted in some of the continent's most extraordinary animal behaviour.

In a quest to capture this behaviour, acclaimed photographer James Gifford embarked upon a project spanning two years, during which he tracked and followed Savute's inhabitants, sharing their struggles, triumphs and tragedies. His photographs depict their fascinating, interconnected stories, balancing form with content in his authentic style. The result is a kaleidoscope of exceptional and occasionally astonishing images, but this book is much more than a collection of beautiful photographs. It is an incredible story of wildlife adaptability and resourcefulness triggered by an unforgivingly erratic environment. In this concentrated, unpredictable corner of Botswana's wilderness, the exceptional becomes commonplace; the fantastical, ordinary and every event is simply the first link in a complex chain of consequences, echoing throughout the animal kingdom.

Savute: Botswana's Wildlife Kingdom is a collection of intimate life stories woven into a complex geological tapestry. Above all, it is a reminder of the indomitable power of the animal survival instinct and irrefutable evidence that much remains to learn about African wildlife.
