In a series of eight colourful books, the authors set out to encourage the international traveller away from the annual sojourn on the poolside lounger towards never to be forgotten adventure holidays, in places where nature can still be enjoyed at first hand. In addition to offering beautiful professional photographic images that capture the spirit of the land, they provide useful travel hints and guidance for the camera enthusiasts keen to produce their own safari albums. The first four titles published in English, South Africa, Namibia, Botswana and India are to be published in September 2006, with Kenya, Galapagos, Tanzania and Madagascar following in the first half of 2007. Botswana is a landlocked country at the very heart of Southern Africa. The terrain is predominately flat to gently rolling tablelands while the Kalahari Dessert covers much of the south west. Because of a national policy of conservation, and the resultant extensive nature reserves, the country provides a magnificent stage for an adventurous photo safari. There is an abundance of wildlife, including lions, leopards, elephants, giraffes, antelopes, ostriches and crocodiles.
This was the first destination visited by the authors when preparing the French language series and, as with all the subsequent titles, the superb photography is supported by informative text and highly professional original design and layout. Each photograph is accompanied by a caption explaining the circumstances of the shoot and offering practical photographic advice.
