About the Book
This journey is the most challenging and ambitious trip I’ve ever undertaken. For the first time, I was not alone starting this endeavour. Being so far from home, companionship became invaluable. We travelled from the south of Africa across the southern deserts from the west coast to the east, passed through the world’s equatorial green belt and on to Saharan Africa.
The three- month journey took us to twelve countries, South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zambia, Malawi, Tanzania, Rwanda, Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia, Sudan, and Egypt. We began in the familiar Cape Town, from there we left the beaten track into the heart of the ‘Dark Continent’.
Nick Wallace is a British photographer based in Switzerland whose career has taken him to more than 100 countries around the world. At age 18, he moved to Switzerland, splitting his time over the next 6 years between the mountain resort of Gstaad and London. For a change of pace, he next moved to New Zealand to hone his skills extreme sport photography in Queenstown. While there, he founded the Nick Wallace School of Photography in New Zealand and later brought the established course back to Europe. Once again wanting to expand his skill set, Nick made a drastic change of career by sailing on luxury cruise ships. While sailing around the world he offered his course to teach photography at sea. Sailing the seven seas sparked Nick’s passion for travel, so next he ventured out with only a backpack and camera. While on these trips, he documented his travels in writing and photos, creating a unique body of work that reflects his passions for travel and image making.
