Drama and beauty abound on the plains of Africa and in this superb collection of images, Australian photographers Kym and Tonya Illman present an intimate insight into Earth’s greatest wilderness. This lavish book is the result of thousands of hours spent on safari in Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Botswana, Zimbabwe and South Africa. The Illmans’ innovative, and sometimes controversial, approach includes cameras buried at the edges of waterholes, mounted on aerial drones and on remote controlled buggies, with many lost to lions and elephants in the process. They have spent days concealed in photographic hides to capture low level shots and have chartered helicopters to photograph wildlife and vistas not accessible by land. Each photograph is accompanied by the fascinating story behind its capture. In a final section the Illmans discuss the various elements that ensure a successful safari, from both a sightseeing and photographic viewpoint.Purchase on Amazon
