Alan Root is one of the great wildlife pioneers: his unmatched experience of East African wildlife and his appetite for risk have made him a world-class naturalist and film-maker.

IVORY, APES & PEACOCKS tells the story of his life’s work, from his arrival in Kenya as a young boy to the making of his game-changing films. From a hot-air balloon Alan was the first to track the wildebeest migration; then he flew it over Kilimanjaro. He filmed inside a termite mound and dived with hippos and crocodiles.

In this extraordinary memoir we look at Africa’s wonders through the eyes of a visionary, live through hair-raising adventure and personal sorrow, and also bear witness to a natural world now largely lost from view.
