Description
Explore the diverse animal population of Africa -- Jane Goodall's "endangered ark" -- in this stunning collection of more than 200 photographs from the world's finest wildlife photographers.

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.

Lively text and extraordinary images offer 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.

Jane Goodall's introduction speaks plainly about what is being done and what still needs to be done to save the creatures of the dark continent. From the hunters (lions, cheetahs, et al.), the grazers (wildebeests, zebras, deer, gazelles, and giraffes), and the huge "untouchables" (elephants, rhinos, and cape buffalos), to a myriad collection of birds, water animals (hippos, crocodiles, et al.), the exotic animals of Madagascar, and our nearest relatives in the animal world -- the chimps and great apes -- Animals of Africa is an incredible panorama of this foreign, exciting world that we must not let disappear.
