The Derelict House

Elephants in my Garden

by Lesley Cripps Thomson

Told in the style of a diary, this tells of the daily difficulties and frustrations of running a lodge with only the barest essentials as nature, in the form of the Luangwa River in Zambia, was claiming back the land on which this old lodge had been built.

The Derelict House also tells of developing a relationship with the staff who, in true African fashion, do not like to be told what to do by a woman. It tells of their lives, of friendships, neighbours and eccentric guests.

An unsophisticated tale, told with humour and compassion, it is in her descriptions of the bush and the wild animals that frequent the lodge and its surrounds that evoke a longing to be there, on the banks of a mighty river in one of Africa’s richest wilderness areas.
