  • Africa’s Big Five HB

    Of all Africa’s wildlife, none has captured the imagination more than those species that have come over the years to be known as the ‘big five’. Whether the biggest, the most beautiful, the fiercest or most formidable, these animals are the ones that have the power to remind us of our insignificance in the face of the true kings of the savannas. Drawn from both hunters and conservationists, the authors of this book present experiences and insights they have gained through years of close observation and face-to-face confrontation, conveyed here in words and photographs that will thrill the imagination. This is a truly magnificent record of Africa’s Big Five.
