South Africa's Wildest Places by Scott Ramsay (1994F)

Scott Ramsay (1994F) has produced South Africa's Wildest Places, a stunning compendium of photography and stories featuring all of the country's national parks.

For the first time, a photographic coffee-table book celebrates South Africa’s finest national parks and nature reserves.

South Africa’s Wildest Places by Scott Ramsay (1994F)
 features 30 of the country’s most special protected areas, including all 19 national parks and 11 regional nature reserves.

This is Scott's photographic journey to the country’s world-famous natural heritage, diverse wildlife and awe-inspiring scenery.

The book is best described with this quote by Dr Ian McCallum, wilderness guide, author, poet, psychiatrist and Springbok fullback. “Scott Ramsay’s South Africa’s Wildest Places is a source of both pleasure and admiration for the photographic and literary skills of the author. But it is more than this. It is a source of inspiration and nostalgia, a quiet envy for Scott’s life as a photojournalist and adventurer. The human figures featured in this beautiful book alongside the collage of animals, birds, insects and flora are a reminder that we live not only on the land but in it and with it. Scott Ramsay understands this connection. To me, this book is both an inner and an outer journey.”
