An informative and colourful photo-guide for those planning a journey to the land of the tiger.
To many minds safari is synonymous with Africa and yet India is an exceptional destination for those keen to explore another wildlife world. It is a country which possesses a substantial natural heritage whose beauty and variety is second to none.
Wildlife abounds with the likes of elephants, deer, monkeys and leopards plus a huge variety of species of colourful birds. And, of course, it is the home of the legendary Bengal tiger. The authors give hints on travel, national parks, local customs and tips for obtaining the best photographic results. Throughout the book, their stunning images show just what’s possible.
Image and nature have also been in the heart of Christine Baillet’s activities for almost 15 years now. Working very closely for many years with Alain Pons, preparing the books she wrote and illustrated some pages with her images, notably the Safari Companions series of eight books. She also wrote Kenya-Tanzanie (éd. De Lodi) illustrated by Christine & Michel Denis-Huot, Parcs nationaux de France - vu par Géo (éd. Solar) and Carnets de Photographes (éd. Empreinte & Territoires). She also published a few articles in magazines such as Passe-Frontières and Terre Sauvage
