    Lanting published this in 1983, when the Okavango was not high on the list of places to see in Africa So his photos capture it when it was truly wild He makes a strong case for preservation, which I hope has happened There are not so many elephants due to poaching but Botswana seems to have done better than most African countries at setting aside areas where large animals can roam freely Lanting s photos are always stunning His descriptions of how he managed to capture the photos is also am Lanting published this in 1983, when the Okavango was not high on the list of places to see in Africa So his photos capture it when it was truly wild He makes a strong case for preservation, which I hope has happened There are not so many elephants due to poaching but Botswana seems to have done better than most African countries at setting aside areas where large animals can roam freely Lanting s photos are always stunning His descriptions of how he managed to capture the photos is also amazing

    Much, muchthan just a pretty face Finally a clear explanation of the counterintuitive juxtaposition of the cycle of rising and falling of delta waters against Botswana s wet and dry season This along with the account of the termites annual nuptial flight following the first heavy rain and the ensuing chain of events beautifully paints a complete picture of the cycle of life in this wetland in the midst of the Kalahari Desert.

    I don t know if all the facts about animals are true or not, but the narrative is very concise and educational about the various habitats of Africa, coupled with brilliant photographs from this National Geographic photographer How is that for a run on sentence

  6. says:

    Impressive only with respect to the sheer volume and diversity of images The photography itself, however, is uninspired For truly breathtaking African wildlife images, look to Nick Brandt

  7. says:

    The photography in this book is superb Frans Lanting really shows a subtle, deep sensitivity to the subjects and the land in the book, leaving you with a sense of Okavango and its importance.Speaking as a wildlife photographer, myself, this book was and remains an inspiration.

  8. says:

    The photography in this book is beyond stunning There are some explanatory notes before each section and then there are explanatory notes before each picture It s an easy read and extremely enjoyable.

  9. says:

    Great pictures and interesting stories.

    Have to admit I didn t read the book, but spent time drooling over the photos Love the photography in this book The perspective in some of the images is amazing
