A reddish-orange animal
Fondest memory: January 1933, he is at 10,000ft on the side of Mt KINANGOP, south of Mt KENYA, looking for a bongo in the bamboo forest. It was freezing on the equator. The bamboo trunks were full of fresh clean water. As he could not hunt a bongo, he heads for Northern Guaso Nyiro River. He gets fever and dysentry and moves to MERU. He is transported to NANYUKI and flown to Nairobi Hospital and told that he has malaria and dysentry. After 3 weeks in hospital, he was back at the bamboo forest, looking for bongo, getting two!

Feeding the wildlife
Fondest memory: My favourite memory from Mountain Lodge was all the monkeys which turned up a meal times. Tourists were feeding them through the slats in the windows and the monkeys were loving it!
