Herne said about DeLima, "There has never been a hunter anywhere in Africa, at any time, who has ever come close to matching his exploits in so many different countries. DeLima hunted Tanzania when it was a hidden paradise, a dot on the map capable of sheltering and protecting any mortal imbued with the spirit of adventure from the realities of the present. Those were the days when safaris were conducted without telephone or tarmac. All of the great hunting regions were explored: Tabora, Tarangire, Babti, Ugalla, Singida, Moshi, Mbeya, Dodone, Lorborsoit, Irigina, etc. DeLima had many secret hideaway far off the beaten track where there as hardly a track to follow, where clients hunted the big five and more. Here is a man who could have been and sone anything but he chose to spend the prime 20 years of his life hunting big game in Africa. There is also a section on hunting in India as DeLima had a fascination with all big cats. A GREAT book and a lovely production. New / New. Item #3077
