Southern Africa is region of spectacular landscapes - from the rolling dunes of Namibia, endless vistas of Botswana and majestic power of Victoria Falls to the towering mountains of KwaZulu-Natal, the rich tapestry of the Cape's fynbos and the expensive Karoo with its characteristics flat- topped mountains.
These landscapes in turn provide habitats for a wealth of life, endowing the region with a wide diversity of floral and fauna, in many instance unique.
This book celebrates that diversity in a carefully chosen selection of iconic images and informative text. A general introduction and map of the region sets the scene and is followed by 10 characters, six of which cover South Africa and with a chapter each devoted to Namibia, Botswana the Zambezi Valley and Mozambique. All of these places are special in their own right, presenting an interesting blend of land, mountains, water and sky and their attendant animal and plant life. Accompanying the splendid photography are facts that will fascinate and inform- touching on the earth's rich geology and natural history as well as its diverse wildlife, great and small.
The book takes a fresh look at a selection of memorable landscapes and their features, offering locals, visitors and armchair travellers an overview of a region that is worth celebrating and remembering.
