Today's nourishment, yesterday's tears
The sublime sights and sounds of Etosha today may well lead many to believe that the park’s founding exactly a century ago was solely based on the noble aim of animal preservation. However, African historian and author Edward Paice reveals that Etosha owes its beginnings to a rather more surprising set of influences, ranging from lofty dreams of fortune, fame and intellectual discovery, to the exploitation of local peoples and Germany’s fear of Portuguese expansionist ambitions.
A leap into the Air
Although sights of the Sahara’s shifting sands in northern Niger may temporarily take your breath away, venturing into the mountains that pierce the desert’s surface and rise high into the blue Nigerien skies will stick with you forever. Follow Anthony Ham as he wades into the world of the Tuareg.

So why don’t you turn your back on Tanzania’s big guns, and give Arusha National Park a chance? Geoffrey Dean did, and he’d happily do it again.
