"Safari-Safari" is the story of Ernest Abernathy's ventures into Africa, where a realization came while dealing with a rhino that effectively led to his evolution from being a dedicated hunter into a life concentrating on the conservation of wildlife and retiring from hunting altogether at the ripe old age of forty.

It's about how the author came from for a life of hunting, along with some interest in conservation, then he came to Africa, what happened there, and the events leading to the reversal of those interests and his retirement from hunting. For many years now the author has been active in various wildlife conservation groups and associations, including his favorite, Ducks Unlimited, where he has raised many tens of thousands of dollars. This book contains the tales of a true hunting safari in Botswana (formerly Bechuanaland) in the days before it became so well-known and popular, and a safari in Tanzania (formerly Tanganyika) where an opportunity with a rhinoceros led to a thoughtful conversion of Ernest to the conviction he should to retire fr
