An African Safari

When this wildlife conservationist goes to Masai Mara, we follow.

Valmik Thapar, armed with his camera, went on a 12-day visit to Masai Mara in Kenya. The result of the trip is as stunning as they are informative. With nearly 200 colour photographs, the author brings us up close and very personal the splendour of wildlife running riot — from the lions and leopards, rhinos and elephants, to bat-eared foxes and black-backed jackals, not to mention birds of many different feathers that include the ostrich, the lilac-breasted roller and the yellow bee-eater. This coffee-tabler ensures you a peek at the most ‘lively’ spot on Earth. And Thapar makes it eminently clear that he wants you see it yourself.
