African Safari

Author(s): Peter Pickford


An Africa safari is arguably one of the most alluring and universally understood dreams of contemporary time. Just the thought of an African safari is capable of evocations of adventure, a journey through nature's grandest spectacle, a glimpse of the earth before man. Peter & Beverly Pickford's "African Safari" is an exploration of all that the word 'safari' encompasses, from journeys on horseback and dugout canoes and the quiet drifting of a balloon, the tension of silent waiting on foot to the smell of dung, the soil and the rain. "African Safari" is an intimate odyssey through the great wilderness of Africa and an eye on its wild denizens, both human and animal, spiced with the echoes of a romantic history."African Safari" is structured into eight chapters: South Africa - Kruger & The Kgalagadi; Namibia - Etosha, Damaraland & Kaokoland; Botswana - Okavango, Chobe & Linyanti; Zimbabwe - Mana Pools & The Zambezi; Zambia - North & South Luangwa; Tanzania - Ngorongoro & The Serengeti; Kenya - Masai Mara, Amboseli & Tsavo; and, Rwanda & Uganda - Parc des Volcans & Mgahinga.
