Namibia: Photo Safari Companion by Alain Pons
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


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. Namibia, the vast and sparsely inhabited country in South West Africa, invites the more adventurous travellers to explore some of the most wonderful landscapes on our planet. The Namib, the oldest desert in the world extends the length of the western (south Atlantic) boundary, extending inland 100 to 150 kilometres. To the east is the Kalahari Dessert and between is a land of high plateau. All the regions offer a different environment and contrasting wildlife. Impossible, then, to comprehensively explore the country in one small book. Nevertheless, the authors present images to capture the spirit of the land and, as with all titles in the "Safari Companion" series, they 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.
