Africa is a place that retains much of what the world has lost: space, roots, traditions, beauty and wilderness. In the traveller it evokes dreams and stirs a desire to return. In Night of the Lions, Kuki Gallmann, author of the best-selling I Dreamed of Africa, writes of a healing and lyrical Africa where every day brings challenge and adventure. Here, in a haunting collection of treasured memories, gathered stories and portraits of unforgettable characters, she unveils the Kenya that she knows and loves. It is a land of danger and superstition, of colour and scent and, above all, of a pervasive but indefinable magic.
'A heartfelt evocation of Africa and its people, illustrated with a selection of stunning photographs. A safari of the soul.'
