"African Odyssey: 365 Days" follows the movements of the great wildebeest herds as they migrate across the Serengeti during the course of a year.
Spurred on by the dry season, which usually begins in April/May, the herds of more than 1.5 million wildebeests leave their breeding and birthing grounds in search of greener plains and then, as the dry season turns back to wet later in the year, they travel full circle back to the plains they left at the beginning of the year.
Governed by the wet and dry seasons, this cycle repeats itself year after year.
This book follows the calendar year, with each spread representing a day in the life of the wildebeests from January to December.
Great travellers that they are, the wildebeests encounter every predator and type of creature of the Serengeti along the way, all of which are featured and examined, displaying the full spectacular variety of this Nature's Paradise.
