[7] A 1960’s Safari Guide and me

1962 Luangwa Valley Game Reserve.

My visit, with the African Safari Guide, to this area was inspired by the book ‘Wildlife in an African Territory’ by F. Frazer-Darling (Oxford University Press 1960).

Having satisfied the manager I was self contained, with a suitably equipped four wheel drive vehicle I was allowed free access to all the area.

Here I had engaged one of the Park Rangers as a ‘guide’ to find some camera worthy animals.

Then, a pipe smoker, I tipped him with a tin of top class English tobacco – much appreciated!
