The Clive James Collection - Series 1
Episode 5 - On Safari

Aired - 05 April 1986

Episode summary:

It's 30 years since legendary author Ernest Hemingway went on his last safari and in this special programme Clive James follows in his wheel tracks accompanied by Hemingway's original guide. He takes a humorous look at the animals and the people of Nairobi and the African bush while staying part of the time in a moveable camp and part of the time in game lodges. But he finds that setting off on safari is anything but simple. His guide through the game reserves of Kenya is Dennis Zaphiro, the same man who accompanied Hemingway in the mid-1950s. This is the land of the Masai and, incredibly, Clive is initiated into the tribe!
