About this book

With its untamed landscapes and unsurpassed bounty of wildlife, Africa has long fascinated. At a time when our earth's fragile balance is in jeopardy, Africa is a more precious natural commodity than ever before. This volume introduces readers to the rich and varied ecosystems of Africa through specially commissioned photographs that depict its diverse wildlife refuges and nature sanctuaries. Spectacular, large-scale colour photographs bring to life the pink flamingos of Nakuru Lake, the hippopotami of the Niger River, and the last remaining virgin forest, in Odzala in Congo, demonstrating the awe-inspiring beauty and inestimable significance of eco-regions across Africa.
