Zambezi Valley: The Lost Stronghold (Self published)

Silvana Olivo

In the 1980s Zimbabwe’s Zambezi Valley was considered the last stronghold for the greatest concentration of wild black rhino in Africa. When Zimbabwe became a dictatorship and the economy imploded, politics infiltrated national parks, and rhino conservation was only possible in vast, private conservancies and smaller, heavily guarded state parks. Game scouts and rangers joined the initiator of Operation Stronghold, Glenn Tatham in the war against poachers, risking their lives in the process.
