The Journey Within
In The Journey Within, Dinesh Patel's talent and lifetime experience as a wildlife photographer are harnessed to give the reader a safari experience close to the real thing alongside the photographer as he passes in a panorama of landscapes and wildlife of Eastern Africa.
This vision of Dinesh is what makes this book unique: his sincere attempt to share the thrill of East African safari through his pure and simple photography.
The spectacular photo journey depicted in this book is perhaps the best testament to the wonderful heritage of East Africa's wildife.

This book illustrates the most convincing reason for nature conservation. In its unique way, using marvelous visual images without the clutter of words or commentary, it takes the reader on a tour of some of Africa's most spectacular habitats and reminding us of what is at stake if we humans fail in conservering this gift of nature.

Foreword by Dr. Richard Leakey
There are hundreds of books of Africa's wildlife but there can never be too many. What distinguishes this book from the myriad others ? There are two unique and striking features. First, its simplicity and purity capturing snapshots of the wild as it is intended to be. Secondly building on this simplicity, unfettered with commentry, the photographer successfully creates a world that gives the reader an experience of being there, accompanying the photographer as he moves on his journey.
