Reviews - What do customers think about Madagascar Safari Companion (Safari Companions)?
Great work Oct 11, 2007
I did not expect much from this book. What was my surprise when I finally have a look at it! Composition of the pictures, lighting, colors and what is very important - quality of the print - is excellent! Photos are taken with all kind of lenses: from macro to telephoto. Commentary provided to each chapter is short but informative enough. If you are planning trip to Madagascar this book could help decide which national parks to visit. There are also some general traveling (what to take, when and where to go) tips.
