Rogue Lion Safaris

Published by Ulverscroft Large Print Books on 1st January 1998

Armed with his late father’s trilby and a degree in zoology, Dan Lynch heads for Africa and work as a safari guide. The somewhat primitive Lion Camp is run in an endearingly eccentric fashion by George Sorenson, who is a world authority on lions and a legendary figure in the South Mchindeni National Park.

Sharing George’s passion for the bush, Dan fits easily into the ramshackle style of Lion Safaris, where getting close to big game, preferably on foot, is regarded as more important than providing creature comforts. It is a policy that can lead to moments of extravagant beauty and heartstopping fear.

However, things are changing in the Park. George may be a brilliant zoologist but he is no businessman, and Lion Camp is threatened by lack of visitors, competition from a slick neighbouring operation and corrupt local politicians. While Dan is falling in love with the country (not to mention the unattainable freckled beauty Caroline Sandford) George is in danger of losing everything.

A beautiful evocation of place, a warmly observant love story, a suspenseful battle against the odds, Rogue Lion Safaris marks the debut of an outstanding new voice in fiction.
