African Wildlife: A Visual Celebration Hardcover – April 1, 1999. Africa is home to a greater number and variety of living forms than any other of the earth's subcontinents and the panorama that unfolds is magnificent in its beauty and drama. by. Peter Joyce (Author). This guide, in which mammals predominate (though birds, amphibians, reptiles and insects also feature), is divided into four major sections based on animal behaviour, namely courtship and parenting; the quest for food; strategies for survival; and social organisation and interaction. The spectrum of African wildlife is boldly and vividly portrayed in this visually spectacular volume.

Wild Africa Trek, is an additional paid experience at Disney's Wild Animal Kingdom. The show uses songs, dance, puppetry and visual effects to portray a tribal celebration in an African savanna setting filled with lions, elephants, giraffes, birds, zebras and gazelles. It is a three-hour guided trek simulating a bushwalk through the wilderness for the first half and traveling through the savanna on a VIP safari vehicle for the latter half. African Swings, is an Wave Swinger attraction. In this theater environment, Festival of the Lion King is a traveling celebration presented by Simba and his friends (including a band of four human singers).

It was a very large coffee table book titled African Animal Kingdom: A Visual Celebration by Kit Coppard. Since it had photos from the African National Parks, it was good book for me to begin preparing for a trip to Africa in 2015 or 2016. I flipped through all the pages of the book while enjoying a medium decaf coffee. The book was in excellent condition.

At over 500 pages, this book would certainly seem to have a lot about the animal kingdom. However, one immediately begins to be wary when the first 100 or so pages are about the environment -- dwelling heavily on Africa's many parks, describing their sizes, briefly discussing the animals, and going into flora, and showing many pictures of nature. Even more daunting is the text -- which may stop mid-sentence before continuing three pages later, thanks to a two-page spread. And the photo captions -- in some cases, the description for the two page spreads are at the end of the SECOND page following it, or in some cases (page 344-5, for example) they have no caption at all.
With that being said, most of the photos are excellent: A leopard descending a tree, or how an elephant dwarfs the other wildlife at a watering hole. Some aren't as crisp as you'd expect from a book calling itself "A Visual Celebration", and in some cases there are five of one animal and none of the animal following it. Yet all in all the photos are splendid to look at.
A breakdown, out of a four star projection (without the one guaranteed star that all books get):
Photos (out of two stars): 1½ stars. The large majority are a pleasure to look at, though the variance in amount of photos from one animal to another loses a half star.
Text (out of one star): 0 stars. Oftentimes relying on detailed specs in the middle of a sentence describing an animal's size (or a National Park's, for that matter) makes reading cumbersome. Perhaps a spec list at the start of each animal would have made more sense.
Layout (out of one star): 0 stars. How the text appears on the pages, as well as the poor setup of captions and how one animal's photos may continue pages into the description of another animal was bad enough to take a half star from the photos. Thus why I gave it just two stars.
Overall, there is a good many better books as a photographic look out there than this one. Not really worth the money. Unless you need to learn how NOT to do a book layout.
