great African reads
There is no shortage of literary gems coming from the Dark Continent - biographies, novels, short stories, historical accounts, anthologies. Picking just 6 titles is near impossible...

current favorites
And here they are - our current selection of our favorite wild places of all those many awesome places on the African safari circuit...
But shhhh, some of these are still well-kept secrets so please don't go telling everyone!
