The only photographic book on the largest wildlife area in Africa; four years in the making, the book is full of amazing photographs of wildlife

Great variety of wildlife: from exotic birds to elephants, from crocodiles to wild dogs

Brief but informative texts on the history and the ecology of the Selous and the problems/opportunities it faces

Beautiful gatefolds and high-quality printing make this book the perfect gift for all nature lovers
The Selous was my very first Africa experience, and it remains my favorite. Robert J. Ross's extraordinary photographs take us into a natural world unlike any other on earth. A world of elephants. Of wild dogs. Of nature as it should be, can be, might be - if we keep these breathtaking images firmly in mind. A triumph! Bryan Christy, Director, Special Investigations Unit, National Geographic

The Selous Game Reserve in southern Tanzania is Africa's oldest and largest protected area.  Proclaimed in 1896 and bigger than Switzerland, the Selous is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Selous remains one of Africa's largest and greatest undisturbed ecosystems, teeming with life including one the largest elephant populations remaining on the African continent, large packs of highly endangered wild dogs, vast herds of buffalo as well as more lions than any other protected area on the continent as reported by National Geographic in August 2013. The game reserve is becoming more important by the day as the pressure on elephants and other species grows - problems that are addressed here in this book.

New York-born photographer Robert J. Ross has spent much of the past four years photographing in this vast and difficult to access reserve. He has compiled more than 100,000 images showing all aspects of the reserves varied landscapes, seasons, flora and large and small fauna. The spectacular large-format photography book features a selection of the very best images including landscapes, wildlife portraits and behaviour, night photography, impressionist style work and breath-taking aerials.
