Overview

In these spectacular photographs taken in Serengeti National Park in Tanzania and the Maasai Mara Natural Reserve in Kenya, Anup Shah reveals African wildlife as never before, through the use of remote hidden cameras planted across the plains. Organized by season from January through December, here is life on the plains in all its dynamism and vitality. Readers find themselves literally face-to-face with hyenas and cheetahs as they feed on a kill; elephants communing at a watering hole; playful lion cubs; wildebeests hauling themselves out of a river; a leopard growling a warning; and inquisitive monkeys gazing at their reflections in the camera lens. Many of these animals have noticed the camera, to them an odd device that makes a strange clicking sound. Captions written by Shah tell the story of the daily ebb and flow of life on the African plains.

    I'm afraid the previous reviewer didn't read so much as the subt

    I'm afraid the previous reviewer didn't read so much as the subtitle of this work, much less any of the interesting details within the book as to how these spectacular photos came to be. Shah used hidden/disguised cameras to photograph wildlife up close. Way up close. The photos are wonderful and the effort behind them is staggering. So different from most other photography books, fresh and fun!

    My boyfriend gave me this for Christmas and I'm thrilled! I was

    My boyfriend gave me this for Christmas and I'm thrilled! I was in the Serengeti and this book shows me some things I saw and some I never could have seen. It is artistic, graphic, and disconcerting. An eye-opening view of life in the wild. Including the reviews on Amazon and here, this book has received 5-star reviews by all but one reviewer.

    very disappointed

    The quality and clairity of the photographs was disappointing. My husband loves photography and sells his work. When I put this book on the coffee table, he looked at it briefly and put it down without saying a word. I never asked his opinion...I didn't have to. I also didn't like the angle which the photos were taken. It didn't create a feeling of calm.
