Featuring more than 180 vivid photographs, Africa offers a pictorial exploration of this great and varied continent in all its majesty from the Ancient Egyptian kingdom of the pharaohs on the banks of the Nile to the deepest recesses of the Congo rainforest.
The world's second-largest and second-most populous continent with 1.3 billion inhabitants, Africa offers a diversity of culture and landscape rarely seen elsewhere - ranging from the Ancient Egyptian kingdom of the pharaohs on the banks of the River Nile to the deepest recesses of the Congo rainforest, one of the most biodiverse environments on the planet.
Divided into five chapters by region, Africa is a sumptuous introduction to this most vibrant of continents. Be amazed at the spectacular Victoria Falls, which is the world's largest sheet of falling water from a height of 108 metres (354ft); explore the Congo River, second largest in the world by volume, as it snakes through the ancient forests of central Africa; enjoy the view from Table Mountain, across Cape Town to the Lion's Head and the South Atlantic; experience the diversity of creatures in the Serengeti National Park, including herds of wild elephants and Cape Buffalo, as well as their primary predators, lions and leopards; and marvel at the 13th century Dejenne Mosque in Mali, made from wooden scaffolding and clay.
Presented in a landscape format with more than 180 vivid photographs of Africa, this book offers a pictorial exploration of this great and varied continent in all its majesty.
