In her new novel Circling the Sun, New York Times best-selling author Paula McLain tells the tale of aviator and writer Beryl Markham, transporting readers to the romantic days of old Kenya… the same days of Out of Africa’s Karen Blixen, and a guy named Hemingway.
Of course, we immerse guests in the romance of Africa every day. That’s why Micato was thrilled to craft a safari for McLain that made it easy for her to retrace Markham’s footsteps and meet old safari hands who recall Markham and those exotic days.
And we could easily do the same for you!
- Discover the same breathtaking Maasai Mara that so captivated Markham, who in her West with the Night talks of the dancing Maasai… and on many of our safaris, you can join them!
- Visit Karen Blixen’s home, where her friend Markham first met big-game hunter Denys Finch Hatton. The trio was quite the love triangle, McLain tells us!
- Sip a champagne cocktail – a favourite of Markham’s, and ours, too! – and watch the sun set over the same savannahs that inspired Markham, Blixen, and Hemingway.
Inspiration, discovery, beauty, romance…it’s why great writers have always come to Africa.
Isn’t it your turn?
