About this book

Johann Knobel has spent the last 20 years photographing each individual biome within South Africa, each of which has its own unique flora and fauna and character. South Africa is the only country on earth to house one of the world's six floral kingdoms (The Fynbos Biome) within its boundaries, and only Brazil and Indonesia, both situated in the tropics, are known to have higher bio-diversity indices. This book takes a holistic look at the natural riches of the country through the lens of Johann Knobel's wonderful photography, supported by a series of essays on each biome written by an expert in the field, but accessible to the layman. It underlines the point that South Africa is one of the "Big Three" bio-diversity giants of the world, and that concentrating on preserving the richness of the ecology is no longer just an end in itself, it is also vital component in the economics of the ever increasing eco-tourism market. South Africa has a truly unique natural heritage and this is reflected in the informative text and the stunning photography.
