Overview

The world's most astonishing wildlife migration is dramatically captured in 160 breathtaking duotone photographs.

The vast grasslands of the Serengeti and the golden plateau of the Masai Mara are a sanctuary for wildlife and the stage for one of the most extraordinary natural phenomena on earth: the wildebeast migration. The sheer scale of this event is both awesome and unimaginable—1,500,000 wildebeasts joined by hundreds of thousands of zebras, gazelles, elephants, and their predators.

Photographer Carlo Mari has followed these animals for ten years and watched them stampeding relentlessly from one horizon to another in vast unbroken columns. His photographs portray the dynamism and courage of the herds, their rhythms, their conquest of new spaces, and their struggle to live and perpetuate themselves. Set within the context of the whole of African wildlife, these images, accompanied by Harvey Croze's authoritative text, stretch beyond the migration itself and provide a glimpse into a journey without end, a perpetual circle of passage. A safari through the pages of this memorable book is the next best thing to being there.
