About the author:
Rory Johnston grew up in the safari business and has planned and led expeditions throughout Africa for his entire life. His earliest memories are of traveling on safari with his parents, who introduced him to some of the continent’s more remote regions and sparked a passion for adventure, exploration, and a deep appreciation for nature.
Johnston’s stories of love and personal relationships are interwoven with his love and respect for Africa, its land, its wildlife, and its people.
His short stories include Growing Up in Africa, A Major Hoodwink, and It Happened at Squeedunc Plantation, co-written with his wife Virginia Doyle. Katambora Sunset is the final novel in the trilogy begun with The Sands of Katambora and Katambora Rising.
While Johnston and his wife currently reside in Houston, Texas, they return to Africa several times a year.
The Third Safari Chronicle
In the 1980s, an era of political turmoil sweeps over Africa, offering opportunity for those who can move with the flow—not always for the better. Among those taking advantage of shifting political alliances are international rhino poachers who begin the rapid eradication of one of Africa’s most magnificent animals for their horns, much sought-after ingredients in Chinese and Vietnamese medicine.
Colin and Annika Somerset manage a photo safari operation on behalf of the local BaTonga people in the remote Zambezi valley. The two have dedicated their lives to wildlife conservation, especially rhinos.
Threatening Colin and Annika’s happiness—and very lives—is Justin Charimba, an old enemy who has his own life ambition: the utter destruction of the Somersets.
Now a member of Zimbabwe’s dreaded 5th Brigade, Charimba exerts his influence over a large swath of land, including the Somerset’s Katambora Safari Ranch. He’s ready to move against Colin and Annika, and if he happens to profit from the deaths of their beloved rhinos, well, that makes revenge all the sweeter.
A rousing Southern African adventure novel reminiscent of Wilbur Smith’s early works, Katambora Sunset brings Rory Johnston’s Katambora trilogy to an exciting close.
