There are few places on earth where one can witness, in such great variety and at such close quarters, the miracle of life and the finality of death. The park is densely populated by some 520 bird, 116 reptile and 148 mammal species, including the fabled big five of elephant, rhino, lion, leopard and buffalo. Virtually every game drive is almost guaranteed to produce thrilling sights to remember, from some of Africa's largest prides of lion, to birds found nowhere else within the country's borders. The Kruger National Park is a true gem of Africa and stands as a symbol to all that conservation and tourism can achieve towards a harmonious level of interdependence.

with photographs by Lex Hes South Africa is a land of hauntingly beautiful and diverse landscapes. Its wild places encompass rugged mountain ranges, sweeping sand beaches, indigenous coastal forest, and sun-blistered arid plains, with each environment supporting its own distinctive plant and animal life. The beauty and diversity of South Africa's unspoiled and untamed places are celebrated in this latest addition to the Wild Places of the World series. South Africa's topography is characterized by a great interior plateau fringed on three sides by an irregular chain of mountains and hills that descend to a narrow coastal strip. The chapters focus on each ecological region in turn, from the Maputaland, a wetland area of great natural diversity, to the mountains of the Cape and Natal, the desert lands of the Karoo and the Kalahari, the coastal zone, the highveld grasslands, and the bushveld. The main focus is on wilderness areas and national parks, each chosen for its wild, unspoiled character, and the book emphasizes the need to preserve the country's natural heritage in a time of increasing demands for human development. Wild South Africa contains 350 stunning full-color photographs that illustrate all aspects of Nature's cycles in each region. The book features the uniqueness of each region's fauna, flora, and geography, from tiny insects, birds, and larger mammals to fruits, flowers, and sweeping landscapes.
