How it works


Hardback with dustcover over original biscuit boards with blocking to upper board and gilt lettering to spine.

Geoff Broom was still a boy when his father took him in close for his first buffalo- with an old Enfield sporter in .303. He wasn't much older when he began doing control work on marauding elephants. In the half-century that has passed, Geoff Broom has hunted, both for himself and professionally, from the top to bottom of the African continent. He has explored what little remains of Darkest Africa, pioneering safari areas, establishing game-management programs and hosting generations of clients on the adventures of their lifetimes.

To African enthusiasts, the name "Geoff Broom" needs no introduction. For decades he has been among the best known, most admired and most loved of Africa's safari operators. For his many clients, he starts as a stranger, but always finishes as a lifelong friend. Anyone who has ever met Geoff Broom will always smile upon recalling his traditional Matabele greeting: "Are you strong, like a buffalo bull?".
