Wild about Africa:
Sleepwalking on Kilimanjaro and Running from Lions
Although the travel itinerary promised a night or two in the wilds of the Serengeti, Alistair never expected to hear prowling lions outside his tent. He didn't think he’d come face to face with a spotted hyena, either. But that's Africa for you. There is always the possibility of something exciting or unexpected, just about to happen.
Two days before climbing Kilimanjaro, while suffering from flu, he was robbed of all his possessions. Wearing borrowed pink tracksuit pants and a discarded Aran jumper, the climb was doomed to fail. Alistair was determined to raise money for charity and somehow made it to the crater rim, before being escorted from the mountaintop.
Years later he returned to Tanzania, this time with his wife. They planned to relax in Zanzibar, before boarding an overland truck from Zimbabwe to South Africa. Within weeks they'd walk with lions, search on foot for rhino, raft the Zambezi and explore the Okavango Delta. But first, there was a mountain called Kilimanjaro, waiting to be climbed again.
If you've ever wondered what it is like to visit Ngorongoro Crater, touch the snows of Kilimanjaro, join an overland safari or visit the prison that once held Nelson Mandela, this is the book for you.
