For more than thirty years, Hugo van Lawick lived and worked alongside the wildlife of the African plains, filming many of the animals that live there and becoming an expert on the behaviour of such species as: African wild dogs, leopards and wildebeest. Hugo’s individual style of cinematography placed an emphasis on the individual, where possible, and while contemporaries were concentrating on obtaining portrait shots, he paid particular attention to the lighting of his subject and documenting action. Hugo began his career in 1957 working with a Dutch film company that made commercials, before moving to Africa with the hope of fulfilling his desire to film wildlife. After working forArmandandMichaela Denisfor a while in the early 1960s, Hugo was suggested as a cameraman to the National Geographic Society by the famous archaeologist Louis Leakey, a working relationship that was to last for more than five years.

This very large book(14 by 10 inches)published in 1977 deals with the so called predators found in the Serengeti National Park in Tanzania, these are lions,leopards cheetahs,hyenas,jackals and wild dogs.
Following an introduction 32 pages of text are devoted to the animals followed by 207 pages of un captioned pictures then 10 pages of miniature pictures and the missing captions.
