A sumptuous visual record of one of Earth's last natural paradises.

From a totally fresh perspective, world-renowned photographer Alex Bernasconi provides a spectacular tour across a magnificent continent. This is the off-road, seldom-seen Africa. Moments of true beauty and natural delicacy show the full splendor of wildlife at one with the landscape.

Choosing from among many thousands of photographs -- having taken more than 1,800 photographs a week of some of nature's finest and most endangered animals -- Bernasconi stays true to the best principles of wildlife photography: invisible, honest, creative. He is especially well known for his uncanny ability to capture animals in their true nature, and the pages of Wild Africa demonstrate he is often rewarded for his patience with endearing and humorous images.

These are unique images captured by a photographer motivated to preserve for posterity one of the world's most exceptional panoramas of extant wildlife. See it here -- and let's try to preserve it.
