About this book

Through 52 black-and-white illustrations by award-winning wildlife photographers, TV presenters and authors Jonathan and Angie Scott, the Sacred Nature Safari Colouring Book captures the joy and excitement of being on safari in the African wilds – for many people, the adventure of a lifetime. Suitable for all ages, the illustrations can be coloured in – or simply admired alongside detailed captions that offer insights into the threats faced by so many wild creatures today.
In this lightweight, inexpensive book suitable for all ages, you will find many animals that safari-goers yearn to see. Carnivores feature prominently, from African wild dogs to lions, alongside herbivores ranging from diminutive antelopes called klipspringers to gargantuan elephants and yawning hippos. There are TV celebrities too, made famous worldwide by series such as the Big Cat Diary, presented by Jonathan Scott: the Marsh Pride of lions star, as do Kike the cheetah, Half-tail the leopard, and Scarface the lion. Birds vie for pride of place, from huge eagles and vultures, via ground hornbills and grey-crowned cranes to everyone’s favourite colourful bird: the lilac-breasted roller. Africa is nothing without its people, of course, so other illustrations feature scenes from the Masaai way of life, and safari activities such as overnighting at Giraffe Manor or in a tented camp, visiting Nairobi’s Elephant Orphanage or taking a hot-air balloon above the savanna at sunrise.
Although famous for their books and television work, Jonathan and Angie Scott are also talented artists, regularly producing beautiful limited-edition prints of their drawings. Admiring their artwork takes us out of our everyday existence and on a virtual safari. The couple are also dedicated conservationists who will donate a percentage of the profits from this book to their Sacred Nature Initiative, which seeks to inspire, educate and conserve – and to help reconnect people with nature.
Whether you’re on the road or stuck at home, the Sacred Nature Safari Colouring Book evokes the wonder of nature alongside the joy of going on safari. It provides the perfect cure for wanderlust, consummate inspiration to take a safari, and an ideal souvenir for those recently returned from Africa.
