Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 208030464X, Hardcover)For thousand of travelers, "safari" means vacation memories of a lifetime. This stunning, 200-page tour brings the reader through the greatest safari regions of Africa. Animals, landscape, light, movement; these elements define a safari adventure. Yet in each corner of Africa, a different scenario unfolds. What makes an elephant look different at the base of Kilimanjaro from an elephant in the marshes of Okavango? Why does a lion on the plains of Masai Mara look nothing like his counterpart on the plains of Etosha? How is a camp pitched in Zambia different from a lodge built in Kenya? Safari shows us the many faces of African countries renowned for their safais: South Africa, Namibia, Zambia, Botswana, Kenya, and Tanzania. From the political stance adopted by the individual governments to the skills of the rangers, and from the standard of the accomodation to the configuration of space, each country in Africa, each landscape, each reserve offers a character, beauty, charm, atmosphere, and harmony all it's own.

Adventure fiction. An increasingly volatile Zimbabwe and the jungleclad mountains of the Democratic Republic of Congo is where a dangerously-charged game of cat and mouse plays out in Africa's wildlife wars. Canadian researcher Michelle Parker cannot resist the opportunity to make contact with the famed mountain gorillas, but she is wary of the man giving her this chance - professional big-game hunter, Fletcher Reynolds. Fletcher represents all Michelle has fought against, but she is reassured by his apparent support for the stamping out of poaching. Into this mix steps ex-SAS officer Shane Castle. He has been recruited by Fletcher to spearhead the antipoaching campaign. Shane is a man who has seen what bullets can do - but he is also a man who makes Michelle start to doubt the choices she has made.
