A Glimpse of Paradise
by Christopher Wingfield

A Glimpse of Paradise is Christopher Wingfield’s story of a unique African childhood. It’s a book that shares Christopher’s love of Africa, capturing a childhood spent in the bush.

Christopher Wingfield is the youngest son of a prominent white hunter based in East Africa. A Glimpse of Paradise is his extraordinary account of his childhood beginning with his family’s flight from East Africa in the midst of political turmoil. His father’s work took the family to the beautiful and remote camp called Lilau situated on the banks of the Limpopo river in Mozambique. Here they experienced awe-inspiring encounters with wild animals, but also faced adversity – including flood waters and rabies epidemics. Once again political strife drove them on to a new African home – and they settled in the scenic Mazoe valley in Rhodesia, only to find themselves living in a farmhouse fortified against attacks from insurgents. With the deteriorating security situation they moved to an idyllic island on lake Kariba (on the border between Rhodesia and Zambia) to help run a camera safari business.

With personal recollections and photos, Christopher’s book is a glimpse into a bush childhood in a bygone Africa.
