Klappentext: "The rhythms and
patterns of life in the African bushveld happen in slow time. Richard du Toit, freelance photographer and
author, has spent the last few years travelling in the wilderness areas of Southern Africa. Waiting and
watching, camera at the ready, he has captured a wealth of images that detail the diverse and rich tapestry
of nature: from minute insects, subtly camouflaged, to the grandeur and majesty of the elephant; and from
the dewy beadwork on a spider's web at dawn to the sweep of the bushveld silhouetted against an amber
sunset. A selection of Du Toit's best images is showcased here, grouped in seven distinct themes: Up
close, In action, Going solo, Pairs, Families, Neighbours and Moods.
Only photographs that have not previously appeared in books have been chosen; and they are published here in
their original state, without any interference or computer manipulation. Du Toit's images reflect nature as
he found it - wild and free."
Verleger: "Mauro Burzio,
photographer, anthropologist and author, has spent many years traveling throughout Africa, documenting the
natural and sociological features of this immense and majestically varied continent. His vision of Africa is
not a romantic one, but is always very true to Africa's complex realities and contradictions. Even when
ravaged by natural calamites, wars and diseases, Africa has maintained a very strong and rich relationship
with the animal world, and it is through this world that Burzio has chosen to show us 'his' Africa. Burzio's
camera has often focused on the animals of this magnificent continent, capturing with tenacity and precision
both the peaceful moments of their daily lives and the intense struggles for survival of the creatures that
dwell there. The photographs in this book are the result of patient waiting and, at times, great risk.
Chapter by chapter, these images offer a sometimes profound, sometimes intimate glimpse into key aspects of
animal existence: their individual and social behavior, their family and love lives, their fights for
territory and their techniques of camouflage and defense. The resulting book is a spectacular portrait of
the fauna of Africa, from the smallest and most delicate insect to the greatest of mighty predators."

Animals of Africa
von Thomas B. Allen (Text), Frans Lanting (Fotos), Michael Nichols (Fotos), Mitsuaki Iwago (Fotos) & Jim Brandenburg (Fotos), Einführung von Jane Goodall
Synopsis: "From lions hunting,
baboons foraging, and elephants trekking, to sleeping cheetahs, tree-sitting gorillas, and balletic
giraffes, animals in the wild have long fascinated man. Animals of Africa celebrates the diversity of
the African natural world in this magnificent book that contains more than 200 striking photographs by the
world's most talented wildlife photographers. Lively text and extraordinary images capture fleeting moments
of animal behavior and the grandeur of the exquisite African landscape in all its moods - from desert and
scrub land to savannah, mountain, and rain forest to the forgotten Eden of Madagascar. Animals of Africa
brings the continent's wonders to the armchair traveler through dozens of striking pictures: a lithe cheetah
streaks across the savannah after prey at 70 miles an hour, the fastest speed for any land mammal. In
counterpoint to this stark depiction of elemental struggle between the hunters and the hunted, a portrait of
lionesses caring for offspring provides a glimpse of tranquil domestic life within the pride. Herds of
wildebeest, who can sometimes number as many as 1.5 million, move in endless migration across the Serengeti Plain;
giraffes, towering almost 20 feet high, browse the treetops; and okapi use tongues so long they can clean
their own eyes. The majesty of elephants in stately parade is balanced by images of their matriarchs
nurturing and instructing their young. The other land giant, the rhinoceros, is shown in a moment of
maternal concern, protecting her calf from marauding hyenas. The powerful images in Animals of Africa
will deepen your appreciation of the natural world, of the fragility of life, and of the imperative to
preserve animals and the wildernesses in which they live."
Verleger: "From arid desert to
tropical swamp, vast grasslands to open bush, Africa is home to an abundant, greatly varied and often unique
animal kingdom. Now explored and sadly often exploited, the magnificent African landscapes, and its
wildlife, nevertheless remain in many places. Best of African Wildlife is a celebration of this great
heritage. Here are the wonders of Africa's natural world, from the smallest of wildlife species to the giants
of the animal kingdom in all their impressive glory. Rare and exotic birds mix with the hunters and
scavengers of the bush, deadly mambas with creatures of the deep, leopards, lions and caracals with graceful
herds of springbok and gazelle. In some 150 photographs, all submitted over the years as entries in annual
wildlife photography competitions, this richness and diversity is shown to its best advantage. Each of the
spectacular pictures, for its own special reason, catches and holds the attention - for the drama of the
hunt and kill, the sheer beauty of an animal in flight or movement or the awesome grandeur of the landscape
and the dignity of its inhabitants. Containing some of the finest wildlife photographs, this guide will
excite the experienced as well as the aspiring photographer and will delight nature lovers and general
readers everywhere. As a highly evocative record of African wildlife at its most majestic, it will perhaps
also serve as an inspiration for the preservation of a natural heritage of international importance."
Verleger: "The annual Agfa
Wildlife and Environment Awards held in Johannesburg, draw submissions from amateur and professional
photographers - the only criterion for submission being that the photographs must concern African wildlife.
This collection combines some of the best wildlife photography the world has to offer. It records the
winning photographs from the from the 20 years of the annual Agfa Wildlife and Environment Awards."

Bush Babies: Young African
A Visual Celebration
von Nigel Dennis (Fotos) & Roger de la Harpe (Fotos)
Synopsis: "Few experiences in life
can match those of observing wildlife in its natural environment, and even fewer can match the enchanting
sight of the birth of a new generation of animals, as they tentatively take their first steps into a brand
new world. The de la Harpe and Dennis teams have spent years photographing wildlife, and here they offer a
close-up view of the new-born, showing a wide variety of young African wildlife - from a newly born buffalo
and just-hatched crocodiles, to endearing elephant calves and cute wild dog pups - and their interplay with
parents and siblings. With over 100 photographs and a short but concise text filled with fascinating facts,
this book is a must for nature-lovers of any age."
