"Preserving the Serengeti is as much about saving our humanity, our link to nature and our own ancient past, as it is about stopping an environmental tragedy. Boyd's book Serengeti covers it all very well."

I loved the book. Just looking thru it the first time, I could almost, hear, smell and feel the wildness that I have experienced there in person three times.
Thanks Mr. Norton, your book has made me smile this month and does each time I see it in my living-room.
Like Norton, I've been in Serengeti with Hussein Hamisi and Ally Msamy when they were driver-guides with Sengo Safaris and camped at Naabi Hill and on the floor of Ngorongoro Crater in 1989. I was with them again after they formed Unique Safaris. I've also had John Lidede as a guide in Masai Mara. As was my own, Norton's introduction to the Serengeti ecosystem was in Masai Mara at a time when the great herds were far away, yet both of us returned again and again to experience the WHOLE of it.
Negative criticism of the book's photographs is unfair and unfounded, as they contribute visual impressions enhancing the richness of the text. Although a number lack captions, most of these are closely associated with Norton's accounts of his experiences. In his chapter "Kifaru" he introduces Anna Merz and her book "Rhino: At the Brink of Extinction" from whom and which he learned much about communication in the black rhinoceros. In the following chapter "The Language of the Wild" he speculates on communication among acacias under attack by giraffes.Read more ›

I was very surprised by the quality of the pictures. They are not good at all.
Almost all of them are small, not sharp enough, not in focus and they look colorless. Read more
