    "Safari" in Swahili means a journey, typically a long one. In "Dark Star Safari", Theroux's itinerary is African, from Cairo to Cape Town - down the Nile, through Sudan and Ethiopia, to Kenya, Uganda and beyond to South Africa. Journeying by train, boat and cattle truck, he passes through some of the most beautiful - and often life-threatening - landscapes on earth.

Reviews of Dark Star Safari: Overland from Cairo to Cape Town

Overall customer rating: 4.000
michaelt

great with small defects

by michaelt on Jan 17, 2008

theroux's insights and prose are terriffic...great book He rather conveniently ignores the fact that he was indeed already a pulitzer prize winner and acknowledged literary star when he endures this trek. thus, he is able to avail himself of some benefits that are lightly glided over. Otherwise, great.
