More info

The author discards his urban middle-class life in Johannesburg and starts walking - and watching, thinking, laughing, dancing - as he searches for remote people, forgotten places and his own identity on the continent of his birth. He lives the life of a vagabond, seeking out the miracles and surprises of Africa and transcribing them into 'a hundred scruffy notebooks'. Levin travels where few have been and meets some of the continent's most enchanting people, from Bi Kidude, East Africa's greatest musical legend; to a mad Zanzibari Emperor; voodoo priestesses; millionaire businesswomen; couturiers and thieves. The Wonder Safaris is a collection of these stories recording Levin's rediscovery of his 'miracle eye'; his ability to listen; his sense of wonder.
