MOUNTAINS OF AFRICA

Leopard’s Leap sponsored the wine at the official launch of the stunning Mountains of Africa coffee-table penned by Duncan Souchon and photographed by Michael Walton.

The launch event was hosted at the outdoor specialist store Cape Storm in Wynberg Cape Town. With the rugged terrain featured in the book, this venue provided the perfect setting for the launch.

The synopsis of the book courtesy of Struik Publishers:

A visual celebration that takes the reader on glorious visits to Africa’s magnificent mountains: the holy ones, the prominent and fabled ones, and those we see and hear of all the time … the volcanic highlands of the Drakensberg/Maluti, Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Mount Kenya, Tsodilo Hills, Mount Sinai, the Atlas Mountains in Morocco, and of course Table Mountain, the jewel in South African tourism.

Mountains of Africa is a journey of both historical and modern travel: walk alongside great explorers of bygone eras while reading about modern-day activities available for mountain enthusiasts.

Also covered are people’s interactions with the mountains from the perspective of the people living in the surrounds, as well as information found in geological, geographical and pioneering history, and substantial reference is made to particular mountains that are a natural sanctuary to certain endangered animals, and to the vegetation and protected parks and areas.
