We turned this pause to account by sending for the goods left behind at Taveta, and tried to pass the time ourselves in hunting, but with little result, except that we got to know the hilly districts on the east somewhat better. We found that these districts were intersected by ravines running in a southerly and south-westerly direction and containing water, but they were so overgrown with rushes that it was impossible for us to make out whether the water in them was flowing or stagnant. Meanwhile two more donkeys had succumbed to the hardships they had had to endure, so we left behind a few coils of iron wire, and thus lightened proceeded on our way on the 19th. After several hours' wandering over dry, grassy steppes a beautiful group of dark green trees, rising far above any others, was pointed out to us as our next halting-place. These trees grew at a sharp bend of the Useri stream, and enclosed a charming spot simply made for a camp, as the men could rest in the shade and the animals disport themselves in the open grass sward in the middle. The vegetation on every side was most luxuriant, and the trees sheltered us from the chill southwest wind which continued to blow without intermission. It was here that six years ago some traders took a bloody revenge for some little offence committed against them by the natives. I was surprised, therefore, at the readiness with which both men and women came to the camp for food, but there wa...

Excerpt from Discovery of Lakes Rudolf and Stefanie, Vol. 2 of 2: A Narrative of Count Samuel Teleki's Exploring HuntingThis, then, was the real appearance of the El Dorado to which we had looked forward so eagerly, hastening on in the hope of finding a second Taveta. Of course the two Somal and eighteen men left behind by the Count hurried out to meet us, and gave us as hearty a greeting as possible; so did the people of the caravan, whilst a few natives, looking as miserable as their land, came up from the village to say they were glad to see us, and to satisfy their own curiosity. But after the great disappointment we had just undergone, our entry into the camp was a very quiet one.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

In Teleki's Footsteps: An East African Journey

Tom Heaton

In 1981, Tom Heaton set out to do a crazy thing. First on a bicycle and then on foot, he recreated the 3,500-mile journey of the 19th-century explorer, Count Teleki, across a previously unexplored East Africa. Unfit and ill-prepared, Heaton set off alone, following in the footsteps of the Count who had taken with him a small army of followers and equipment. This is the story of how he overcame mishaps, dangers and disasters. Along the way he encountered wild animals, mischievous bandits and many other discomforts, but he also discovered companionship, hospitality and even love.

This book was originally published prior to 1923, and represents a reproduction of an important historical work, maintaining the same format as the original work. While some publishers have opted to apply OCR (optical character recognition) technology to the process, we believe this leads to sub-optimal results (frequent typographical errors, strange characters and confusing formatting) and does not adequately preserve the historical character of the original artifact. We believe this work is culturally important in its original archival form. While we strive to adequately clean and digitally enhance the original work, there are occasionally instances where imperfections such as blurred or missing pages, poor pictures or errant marks may have been introduced due to either the quality of the original work or the scanning process itself. Despite these occasional imperfections, we have brought it back into print as part of our ongoing global book preservation commitment, providing customers with access to the best possible historical reprints. We appreciate your understanding of these occasional imperfections, and sincerely hope you enjoy seeing the book in a format as close as possible to that intended by the original publisher.
