Elaine Webster. 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!

Michela Butler from . 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.

Peter Williams from . 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.

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

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