  1. Kay from Clevedon

    Love this book, such amazing photos!
    Jenny is definitely an experienced expert in this field.

    Eswatini, ruled by King Mswati III, is a landlocked country bordering Mozambique to the west and South Africa”a spectacular Drakensburg mountain range to the east.

    I had recently returned from a tour of the independent kingdom – formerly known as Swaziland and where the Oscar-nominated actor Richard E Grant was born and raised – with a small and engaging group lead by Jenny Bowen who for many years has organised boutique safaris across the region. The tour included several imaginative and revelatory game drives and walks, as well as opportunities to experience the nation”s traditions and ceremonies. We were also able to meet a number of local groups who rewarded us with abundant hospitality, including food offerings which were tasty and plentiful.

    Now Jenny has produced a wonderful pictorial – sense africa – published by Wordcatcher, fully capturing the essence of countries she has visited across southern Africa, the vibrancy of its joyous and welcoming peoples, their festivals and traditions. Above all here is a portrayal of exceptional wildlife photography from Jenny”s personal archive, displaying a masterful appreciation of the fantastic array of fauna around most every turn, as well as exhibiting anticipation, timing and composition that is hard to emulate. This marvelous compilation is complemented by some personal anecdotes of close encounters of the animal kind and a thoughtful narrative of one of Eswatini”s unique festivals.

    Whether bought as eye candy for the coffee table or as a naturalist”s delight, ”sense africa with Jenny” provides the perfect introduction to this vivid and mercurial landscape.

    We have very much enjoyed looking through the photographs. How evocative they are. I especially liked the cheetah shots and Swaziland portraits. Your wonderful Sossusvlei landscapes also reminded me of my wonderful travels there in the 90s.

  4. Sandra and Neil Harrison

    This is a very beautiful book and the photos are amazing. It also makes us want to return to Africa!

  5. Lesley King

    This book so reignited our memories of a good trip to Africa.

  6. Peter Williams

    Your fabulous book arrived yesterday. The photographs are superb (did you really take them all?!) and it brought back many happy memories of our truly amazing trip to Namibia.

    So I had to pick up a mysterious package from the post office today but quickly realised what it must be when I saw it was from a publishing company. I was ripping the box open in traffic as I couldn’t wait until I got home! It is so lovely Jenny and the diversity of the photos perfectly sum up the varied aspects of Africa. I will really treasure it. I had to smile at the opening pages of birds, especially the very first one of the Hammerkop as I saw my first one of those on my recent trip to Kenya. The photo of the goshawk is particularly stunning. To be fair, it’s difficult to single any of them out though and they all evoke such strong feelings.

  8. Jane Baxter from Manchester UK

    Jenny has really captured the essence of Southern Africa with the stunning photos and descriptions of African experiences in this book. She has a thorough understanding of Southern Africa, particularly Swaziland, and organised a wonderful trip there for me. This book evokes wonderful memories of that trip, and of Africa. If you haven’t experienced the beauty and splendour of Southern Africa this book will make you want to!

  9. Terry and Vicky Andrews

    Over time, you have certainly gathered a really comprehensive study of animals in that part of the world. It is very impressive. I keep passing your name to anyone who hints at intention to travel to Africa; hopefully you’ll get some business there. We were only this weekend reminiscing, of the trip we did with you, with Vicky’s sister who was a teacher at the International school there for some years. She has fond memories of Swazi as do we! Now your book helps to reinforce.

  10. Valerie Carter

    The pictures are lovely. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Swaziland which you arranged for us and this is a great, extra memory.

  11. Louise from Gloucestershire UK

    Amazing photos!

  12. Samantha Mant from Bristol, UK

    What a gorgeous book. Lovely intimate pictures of the animals and people. Whilst not having been to Africa, yet, this certainly makes me want to go all the more.

  13. Claire Gray

    I just wanted to email and say how much I loved your book! I have read your blogs and brought your book when it was published and have only just found the time to read it. I did so in virtually one go. It captivated the amazing sights and sounds of the African busy so well.

  14. Mrs S Harrison

    It’s a very beautiful book and the photos are amazing. You should be proud of it especially as it also makes us want to return to Africa!

    What an amazing book!
    Jenny gives a fabulous insight into what you would be able to experience on a holiday of a lifetime to Africa. The photography is outstanding and you cannot help but dream of being there and seeing the sights. Every picture tells a story. Jenny’s memoirs through out the book are a great read, you can actually feel the adrenaline pumping in the hungry hippos tale! How fantastic does the traditional dancing in Swaziland look! I adore these photos of the children, you can see their enjoyment and happiness, this shines through the photos. The colours and the vibrancy, as Jenny says once seen, never forgotten! However, I think my favourite has to be the lions and their cubs, what impressive animals these are. The photo of the male lion is so clear that you can actually look into his eyes and feel his strength and fearlessness!
    Jenny and her team planned a fantastic trip, for my husband and I in 2017 which we’ll never forget. I can truly recommend Sense Africa and this book which has pride of position placed on my coffee table so I can just pick it up and relive some of my own memories of a unforgettable country!
