Few people go to East and Central Africa purely for pleasure. The winter before last Mr Evelyn Waugh made a brief but leisurely tour in Kenya, Tanganyika, and Rhodesia and, eschewing all political problems, found many amusements lacking in the recognized holiday resorts. He has a sharp eye for oddity, both in history and in contemporary manners. His travel diary makes a very pleasant bedside book (which should induce sleep in all but the most stubborn insomniacs).
