Photographer, author and adventurer Scott Ramsay's tribute to South Africa's national parks and nature reserves
“These wild places and their animals have become part of who I am. They have taught me that wilderness is far more important than I ever imagined, and that we must not only protect Africa's wild places at all costs, but also celebrate them for what they are: the greatest source of wonder and inspiration in a modern, materialistic world depleted of soul and spirit."
