    Forty years ago, Paul Theroux first went to Africa as a teacher in the Malawi bush. Now, nearing 60, he returns to travel by train, canoe, bus, and cattle truck from one end of Africa to the other. From Cairo to Cape Town, what he finds is recorded in the style that has stamped Theroux as a master of the travelogue. His curiosity and intelligent observations help create an unforgettable portrait of the varied land that is Africa today.

    Would you listen to Dark Star Safari again? Why?

    This was a great read as well as a great listen. I love the journey and it was well descriptively written from Cairo to the Cape. As an African, I found the Norman accents of the Africans way off key for the most part, at best they were misplaced for the most part. Looking beyond that narration flaw, the Paul presentation was stellar. I will be reading/listening to this again.
