Serengeti: Natural Order on the African Plain

Iwago, Mitsuaki

1987

Reviews

'Stunning scenes and portraits from Serengeti (the Tanzanian continuation of the Maasai Mara) from a master photographer. Simply the best volume of wildlife photography ever assembled, this makes most glossies look feeble. If you're trying to persuade someone to visit East Africa - or if any aesthetic argument were needed to preserve the parks and animals - this is the book to use.'

Roughguides Internet Bookreview 1996

'Available again in a handsomely jacketed new hardcover edition, this is Iwago's account of the Serengeti, a world of calm beauty and quick violence, where the daily drama of life and death for over 2 million animals is played out against the background of a spectacular landscape. ‘This is far and away the best book of wildlife photographs that I have ever seen from East Africa . . . Go and buy a copy for your own delight, buy one for your friend's illumination, buy another for your school's enlightenment.'

Norman Myers, Oryx.

I lived in the park for a year

I lived in the park for a year and a half, from August 1982 to March 1984. ... With my wife and four-year-old daughter, I rented a small house in a village called Seronera, located in the centre of the park. Its population consists of six hundred Tanzanians who are rangers in the park or employees of the tourist lodges.

[The best book of photographs of the Serengeti. Bought in Nairobi by Colin, to commemorate our trip in 1994.]
