|5 stars, 1 review|
John Alexander Grosartabout this book: This is the true story of John and Sylvia Grosart who lived in Africa for 16 years.
It tells of their life and experiences through their eyes, of the Wildlife, Poverty, Corruption, and Survival, from South Africa through to Malawi. In the last twelve years they built and operated there own Safari Lodge on the shore of LAke Malawi near the Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve. This finally finished in tragedy, as there were two attempts at murdering the authors wife Sylvia. It had to be abandoned so as to save her life and get her back to the United Kingdom.
This story takes in the extremes from the beautiful bride in her white wedding dress going to church on the back of her Fathers bicycle to the nightmare drive across Africa with what turned out to be a diamond smuggler. It highlights the corruption in the Police force who could not be trusted. It also highlights the tragedy of the scourge of HIV/AIDS in Sub Saharan Africa in which it killed three million people,
leaving Malawi with a massive orphan problem.
