Out of Africa is a one-of-a-kind wildlife park located just 30 minutes southeast of the Southwest Inn at Sedona. Why travel 7,000 miles to Africa when Out of Africa brings the animals to you? You can ride their educational trolley, which runs continuously throughout the day, to view and photograph their great population of large cats (such as lions, white and yellow Bengal tigers, and leopards), hyenas and black bears from unobstructed photo platforms. In addition, the trolley can be enjoyed as a hop on, hop off experience allowing you to spend as much time as you like with these spectacular animals. The Southwest Inn at Sedona offers photography packges which include Out of Africa. This book contains about 50 color photos of the park and its animals.
A 20 page book about the animals of East Africa with four fold-down scences, four pop-up animals and extra press-out figures. The book describes the life of the animals in detail. The models are kept in a resealable pack at the back.
Join author Dean Harrison on a journey to Out of Africa, a unique wildlife park where big cats live side-by- side with their human companions. âReturn to Edenâ peers into the psychological make-up of animals, revealing the instinctual connection between us and themâand the One who made us all. The schematic of motivational forces behind behavior fosters the traffic laws of nature that help unravel who we are before we learn.
My original plan was to write a travel report only but considering the overwhelming interest, as a reaction to a partial pre-release on the internet with more than 65,000 views and more than thousand comments and positive email messages, exceeded all expectations. In the end my story was chosen to be placed on the "Best of the South African National Parks Forum". After that the views were increasing even more and at the end it nearly became the story of my "African" life . . .
One of these early readers was Tony Park, the world famous best-selling novelist who also wrote the following words in the foreword for this book:
â. . . Reading âDreams are the Wings of my Lifeâ, and marvelling at Ludwigâs photos is like taking a game drive, a trip down a lane where some of the best memories of oneâs life can be found.
Whether youâre a die-hard Kruger fan (like myself), occasional visitor, nature lover, keen photographer, or someone who hopes to visit Africaâs magnificent game parks some day youâll find hours of entertainment and information in these pages.
Ludwig tells game viewing and travelling as it is, from the moments of high drama to the occasional frustrations and, most of all, the sheer and utterly inescapable beauty of this stunning part of Africa.â The book (composed of four parts) includes beautiful price awarded pictures, like âBest predator sighting of the year of South African Parksâ and âPicture of the month of South African Parksâ.
Filled with many flashbacks, this incredible travelogue from the diary recording of a nature photographer is unique. A must-read for lovers of the African Wild!
". . . We were watching a lion pride of four members trying to catch some prey during the most recent nights, as we knew from spending our time here, but had been unsuccessful in hunting zebra and springbok. Behind the opposite end of the water hole we saw a dead black-backed jackal lying there. We already noticed it in the morning and the heat of the day did not do the best to the carcass. After failing again in hunting a springbok one lioness started eating from the jackal but stopped soon. We knew for sure: All these lions were very hungry.
It was far after midnight, we still hold out but so did the lions. Then it was already two oâclock in the morning. Although it got cold we stayed.
Suddenly a big noise close behind us frightened us. Obviously, some jackals knocked over a dust pin inside the camp. We calmed down fairly quickly but then we heard the jackals start feeding on the remains of someoneâs evening-braai. We could hear the cracking of small bones loudly and clearly. And we were not the only ones who could hear this!
The lions looked towards our direction and from this very moment, we could feel it very clearly: They were ready and considered going over the wall to go where the jackals were feeding. Above all, if they would come we would be right in their way . . . .
We knew if they wanted to, they could enter the camp by jumping over the stony wall which was only supported by some thin wires. Moreover, this was the place where lions came into the camp and killed a German some years ago!!
We do not feel anxiety and fear very much in the wild but things were different at this moment. We knew if they came, they would not feed the left-overs of the braai only . . . and we could sense they were thinking of coming strongly . . . "
