India is an exceptional destination for travellers whatever their interests and for those who love to observe and photograph nature and wildlife, it is a veritable treasure trove. For this volume of the "Safari Companion" series, the authors have explored the national parks and reserves of the north to capture, on film, life of the native animals and birds. In particular, the habitats of the tiger, that most magnificent feline of which tales and myths abound.. As with all titles in the series, the authors set out to share their field experiences, giving advice to add to the enjoyment of exploring the nature and wildlife of the country. Where appropriate, each picture is linked to a caption explaining the circumstances of the shoot and offering practical photographic advice. 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.
