Its wild places encompass rugged mountain ranges, sweeping sand beaches, indigenous coastal forest, and sun-blistered arid plains, with each environment supporting its own distinctive plant and animal life.

The beauty and diversity of South Africas unspoiled and untamed places are celebrated in this latest addition to the Wild Places of the World series. South Africas topography is characterized by a great interior plateau fringed on three sides by an irregular chain of mountains and hills that descend to a narrow coastal strip.

The chapters focus on each ecological region in turn, from the Maputaland, a wetland area of great natural diversity, to the mountains of the Cape and Natal, the desert lands of the Karoo and the Kalahari, the coastal zone, the highveld grasslands, and the bushveld. The main focus is on wilderness areas and national parks, each chosen for its wild, unspoiled character, and the book emphasizes the need to preserve the countrys natural heritage in a time of increasing demands for human development.Wild South Africa contains 350 stunning full-color photographs that illustrate all aspects of Natures cycles in each region.

The book features the uniqueness of each regions fauna, flora, and geography, from tiny insects, birds, and larger mammals to fruits, flowers, and sweeping landscapes.
