Animals of Africa captures the unique beauty of the African natural world in 200 full-color photographs by four top wildlife photographers: Jim Brandenburg, Mitsuaki Iwago, Frans Lanting, and Michael Nichols. Against the backdrop of an exquisite landscape that ranges from desert scrub land to the savanna, the mountains, and rainforests, their extraordinary images feature the hunters, grazers, waterbirds, and strange menagerie of Madagascar’s isolated forgotten Eden. This exciting volume features up-close images of fearsome lions, cheetahs, leopards, and hyenas; the gentle grazers such as wildebeests, zebras, deer, gazelles, and giraffes; the giant “untouchables” such as elephants, rhinos, and cape buffalos; as well as birds from flamingoes to vultures, water animals such as hippos and crocodiles, and of course the chimps and great apes. Animals of Africa brings its wonder to the armchair traveler in dozens of striking images. These powerful photographs will deepen your appreciation of the natural world, of the fragility and balance of life, and also bring to light how imperative it is to preserve these African animals and the wildernesses in which they live.

The photography is beautiful and I like the approach of organizing the animals by their ecological niche.
