Inhaltsangabe: Twenty years ago, Don Shay embarked on a once-in-a-lifetime travel experience that would prove to be anything but. Armed with two new cameras and a carry-on packed with film, he set forth on a photographic safari to Africa.
Captivated by the wild animals and wild places he found there, Shay returned again and again to the continent, delving deeper and deeper into its wilderness regions and game reserves as he sought out close encounters with some of the planet's most charismatic and highly endangered creatures. Through the years, Shay has spent more than nine months on safari, embracing the splendor and drama of Africa from open land vehicles, light aircraft, watercraft, hot-air balloons and on foot.
In this vibrant memoir of a twenty-year love affair, Shay evokes the safari experience with clarity, insight and humor. Accompany him as he traces the route of the Great Migration through the Serengeti ecosystem of Tanzania. Share the suspense as a lioness stalks prey in the Masai Mara of Kenya, and the horror as a cheetah hunt goes terribly awry in the Savuti region of Botswana. Climb the Virunga volcanoes of Rwanda for a poignant encounter with mountain gorillas. Join a pack of African wild dogs as they hunt and raise pups in the Okavango Delta of Botswana. And feel the rush of cruising down the Chobe River on a quest for elephants.
With this compilation of words and photographs, Don Shay has produced a vivid and compelling book that will resonate with anyone who has been on safari, anyone who is considering such an adventure, or anyone content to remain at home and enjoy the wonders of Africa from afar.
