This land of great beauty is rich in scenic splendour and cultural diversity and is arguably unparalleled for its variety of fauna and flora. I have travelled the length and breadth of South Africa. I have climbed high mountains, crossed the vast Kalahari desert, and have been on spectacular helicopter flights, boat rides, 4x4 expeditions and the like. Armed with my cameras, a panoply of lenses and lots of film, I have taken many photographs of the magic moments I encountered along the way. I hope that this book will showcase our beautiful land, give insight into the people and places that make it such an extraordinary country, and serve as a perfect memento of a great visit to our southern shores. If this book entices fellow South Africans to take a fresh look at our wonderful country, that would be the cherry on the top for me. Those willing to travel 'off the beaten track' will be rewarded by refreshingly unsophisticated and genuinely old-fashioned hospitality and, as I did, encounter delightful and unusual gems.
