Product description

When it comes to wildlife and wilderness, Tanzania has no equal. Over a third of the country is protected or gazetted, and within its conservation areas live higher concentrations of savannah mammals than are found anywhere else on the continent. Tanzania is home to over 10,000 plant species, 60,000 species of insects and over 1,000 species of bird, making it one of the most biodiverse nations on earth. And as if all this were not enough, within Tanzania's borders are some of the continent's most extraordinary natural wonders, including Africa's most famous park (the Serengeti), its highest mountain (Kilimanjaro), the world's largest game reserve (the Selous), and the planet's biggest volcanic crater (Ngorongoro). Yet it is not just its spectacular landscape and its singular creatures that make this country so special. For Tanzania is also home to some unique cultural marvels, including a vast collection of prehistoric rock paintings (Kondoa) and two of the most important Swahili trading towns of past millennia (Stone Town and Kilwa). It would be possible to make great claims for many territories and lands, but Tanzania really is exceptional. Reflecting its incredible natural and cultural wealth, Tanzania has seven World Heritage Sites: more than any other country bordering it, and more than most on the continent. This wonderful book - written by long term Tanzanian resident, Louise Hoole, and photographed by a range of the country's best known artists - celebrates Tanzania's stunning world heritage sites, examining both their fragile present and precarious future. Sponsored by UNESCO, Seven Wonders has chapters on Mount Kilimanjaro, the Serengeti National Park, the Stone Town of Zanzibar, the Ngorongoro Crater, the Selous Game Reserve, the Kondoa Rock Paintings and the ruins of Kilwa Kisiwani. It serves as a perfect introduction for anyone wanting to learn more about the historical, natural and artistic wonders of this amazing country.
