Between the Congo River and the White Nile are magic words to Tony Sánchez-Ariño. For him, they name a fabled part of Central Africa that has inspired his dreams of wild lands where he and other hunters and explorers had an unlimited horizon for their activities.In Tonys new book, Between the Congo River and the White Nile, he takes us to those remote corners of the old Belgian Congo (later Zaire and now DRC), Gabon, Sudan, Uganda, Ubangi-Shari C. , and, although not in the same geographical area as the others, Somalia where he hunted in Oltre Giuba, which spreads out from the Juba River to Somalias border with Kenya. These countries cover the heart of Africa, and this vast area truly was a paradise for hunters and explorers until the 1980s. Unfortunately, times have changed radically from when Tony first began to hunt in Africa in the 1950s.
Political problems and rampant, nonstop poaching are the norm these days. When the Winds of Change took away everything, only malignant forces, the forces for evil, were left: poaching and the destruction of all wildlife and their habitat, political turbulence, government irresponsibility, corruption, and insecurity on all levels. Tony has had a lifetime of hunting experiences since he wet his feet for the first time in the Congo and White Nile Rivers, but his memories are still very much alive. He remembers everything as if it had happened yesterday.
In 1959 southern Sudan had marvelous hunting, for there were amazing quantities of wild animals even on the outskirts of Juba, the capital. One needed only to cross the White Nile from the left to the right bank, which Tony did by using a ferry called the Atbara. On taking the highway north to Mongalla, Tony saw hartebeests and oribis so abundant he thought them to be a plague. The years have only added to Tonys repertoire of adventures, and this new tome contains the reminiscences of some of his best-ever exploits and escapades.
