Description:

The African lion (Panthera leo), long celebrated as the king of beasts, faces unprecedented challenges in the wild today. Loss of habitat, through the expansion of human activity, increasingly restricts the lion to game reserves and national parks, while diseases such as bovine tuberculosis pose a threat to the health of lion prides. Over a period of 18 months, Roger and Pat de la Harpe have documented the wild lions of South Africa, and the result is a superbly photographed and engagingly written tribute to thi often misunderstood predator.

In Search of the African Lion enters the complex world of the lion, describing pride dynamics, hunting patterns, the reproductive cycle and interactions with human communities. The book focuses on four main areas: the Kalahari the Madikwe/Mapungubwe area, the Greater Kruger National Park and Northern Zululand, each with its own problems, challenges and opportunities. In addition, the authors highlight the important work done by game rangers, wildlife managers and scientific researchers in understanding the lion and protecting existing populations.
