Patricia Glyn walks from Durban to Vic Falls, following the ox-wagon trails that her ancestors used 150 years earlier. While they both experience vast open spaces and occasional dodgy locals, she walks through an Africa devoid of wildlife, while they gleefully shoot animals by the dozen.
The sidebars (which often extend to a couple of pages) give background information on local history, flora and fauna, hunting and weapons, local tribes and much more. It's a fascinating read, packed with great photos and excerpts from the diaries of both Patricia and ancestor Richard, as they travel 2200 km on foot.
