While this is not a book review site, I hope you dont mind if I tell you of a book Im reading. I like to go on a trip prepared with a bit of practical knowledge but I also enjoy finding out "how things came to be". I was in an op.shop (vintage, 2nd hand) when stumbled upon a book "Serengeti Home" by Kaye Turner, published in the 70s, telling of their near 2 decades during the late 50s through to the early 70s living in the isolated Serengeti. Great tales of leopards creeping around the babies cots in tents at night!, cobras in the pantry, lions in the chicken house etc. Kayes husband, ex hunter then new Park warden, pretty much single handedly took on poachers at a time when the animals, big herds were looking at being wiped out if things didnt change suddenly. Tens of thousands of snares were confiscated. They moved to Seronera to build the new Park Headquarters when there was only a handful of "locals", and "tourists" were just starting to trickle in. By the time they left, wildlife numbers had doubled. Im really excited to think Ill be seeing all this and hope to be able to identify some of the spots mentioned in the book. An incredible story if you're interested in the Serengeti--how it was, how it is and how it could have been so easily lost.
