Kenya and Kilimanjaro were national parks with the additional and unusual advantage of visitors being allowed to walk through them. In the space of a few days, they could traverse big-game haunted natural forest, pass onto heathland and moorland studded with strange phallic vegetation; be baked by the sun, drenched in rain, chilblained in the snow and have difficulty in sleeping at night. With a little imagination it was possible to die of exposure or of pulmonary oedema or get lost and be pulverized by a rhinoceros. In short, these parks were heaven on earth.
