It is wild Tanzania in question here; that of Ngorongoro for example, very officially classified among the treasures of the universal heritage as the animal species it shelters are numerous; that of the Serengeti, the "Great Space" which offers us with the incredible and massive migration of wildebeest, one of the most fascinating natural spectacles on the planet. It is the Tanzania of Manyara which is shown to us, where the lions sleep in the branches of the acacias; also that of the Tarangire river watering the great antelopes of Africa.

Zanzibar magical islands
The city of stones, placed between sky and sea, reveals colonnades, minarets, cathedrals, temples dominated in the center by the square tower of the house of wonders.
Built of coral stone, the city of Zanzibar is a labyrinth of narrow, shaded streets and bright squares. Carved doors, carved balconies, barazas and moucharabiehs mix and repel shadows and lights.
"Zanzibar Magical Islands" is an invitation to travel through the archipelago: from the historic city to golden beaches and coral reefs.
Texts, illustrations and photographs provide the information necessary for a good understanding of the different aspects of Zanzibar.

Masai of red cloth
A designer and a photographer meet the Men in Red Cloth, the Masai.
It is at the same time a story, a travel diary, a trip to the heart of the Masai country, to the heart of the Masai thought.
Drawings, photos, stories, this work is not a work on the Maasai but a work with the Maasai.
Authors: Etienne Van Den Driessche, François Folcher and the Maasaïs.
Of all the creatures that inhabit the world's wilderness, the big cats are among the most fascinating. Always present in human cultures, these animals have eminently permeated our minds, history and the arts.
Most of them live in Africa. Lions, leopards, cheetahs and others live together in the same territories. FAUVES d'Afrique invites you to share the author's passion for these supreme predators whose lives he has photographed for many years. This work is a tribute to their emblematic beauty.
Author: Alain Pons.
For many people, encountering the mythical landscapes and the great fauna of East Africa is the fulfillment of a dream.
Then one day, this dream becomes a necessity, almost an emergency: the safari is then an initiatory experience.
It is this journey that the authors of this book have lived and, under the conditions of a first trip, they come to testify to the force of their discovery.
The tracks of northern Tanzania are revealed to us, in an original way, by their three complicit and complementary views. The painter's notebook, that of the traveler and that of the naturalist reconnect with the modes of expression of past expeditions, when photos or advertising slogans did not exist.
This work has the strength of experience, its poetry too.

On the wild tracks of Tanzania
"Tawisa is twenty". This book discreetly celebrates this anniversary in its own way. Above all, the opportunity to pay tribute once again to the incredible landscapes and fauna of Tanzania.
The choice of the format, the quality of the edition, the bias of the authors (large exceptional photos in Black and White embellished by smaller and more anecdotal in color and short, surprising and poetic texts that respond to the images ... ), makes this book a separate work, a real book of Art.
