Brief contributions by Brian Herne, Derrick Dunn, Anton Allen and Richard duPont. Brian Herne said about Jorge: œThere 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 described Tanganyika as a hunter's paradise, a œhidden and distant dot on the map capable of sheltering and protecting any mortal imbued with the spirit of adventure from the bitter realities of the present. Those were the days when safaris were conducted without telephone or tarmac. All the great hunting regions were explored: Tabora, Tarangire (now a national park), Babati, Ugalla, Singida, Moshi (now near the airport), Mbeya, Dodone, Lorborsoit, Iringa etc. Jorge had many secret hideaways, far off the beaten track, where there was hardly a track to follow, where clients hunted successfully for the big five and more. DeLima is a man who could have been and done anything, but he chose to spend the 20 prime years of his life years hunting big game in Africa. This, DeLima's second book, is about hunting with clients mainly in Tanzania. There is also a section on hunting in India as DeLima had a fascination with hunting big cats and that, of course, meant tigers. DeLima's hunting film about Tanganyika, Kirongozi Adventures, won the best documentary of the year award in Brazil. And this book is in its own way as great as that film. We are proud to offer this as the 49th title published by Trophy Room Books.
