Writing at the suggestion of the Prince of Wales, Captain John Willoughby describes his expedition to the Taveta forest "and the adjacent virgin hunting grounds in the plains surrounding the base of Mount Kilimanjaro" in the 1860's. This area was chosen because "owing to the wide-spread terror inspired by the Masai, whose constant ...cattle raids have almost denuded the district for hundreds of miles of its ...inhabitants, this country had not yet been shot over". An exciting account of East Africa before European colonisation, when it lay under the influence of Egypt and Arabia.
