A visual feast, Exclusive Safari Lodges of South Africa features more than 70 of South Africa's finest game lodges and the myriad wild animals that roam the vast stretches of African veld that surround them. In this lavish volume, internationally renowned photographer, author, designer and publisher Gerald Hoberman reveals in exquisite detail the unique facets of South Africa's top game lodges. This epic book is an inspiring read and an ideal guide for armchair travellers and those planning a safari holiday where the things that count are comfort and luxury, stunning decor, world-class cuisine, exceptional service and, of course, excellent game-viewing opportunities. Each turn of the page is a statement of nature's profundity and a celebration of the experiences of an authentic African safari. From the hairs on the hind legs of an ant to the eyelashes of an elephant, little escapes Hoberman's attention. The entertaining and informative text on the lodges by well-known travel writer Carrie Hampton provides a perfect accompaniment to Hoberman's photography and descriptive narratives of his encounters in the wild.
