Carrying little more than a change of clothes and a pair of binoculars, two young Americans, Mark and Delia Owens, caught a plane to Africa, bought a thirdhand Land Rover, and drove deep into the Kalahari Desert. They lived for seven years, in an unexplored area with no roads, no people and no source of water for thousands of square miles. In this vast wilderness the Owenses began their zoology research, working along animals that had never before been exposed to humans. ‘Cry of the Kalahari’ is the story of the Owenses’s life with lions, brown hyenas, jackals, giraffes and the many other creatures they came to know.
