Yaounde in People's Lives

Gerald Durrell: I traveled here in 1947 on a wildlife collecting expedition. It was my first of such voyages, and I had secured my place - despite having no experience - by paying my own way with the inheritance that my father had left me. I was 21 years old. The trip was successful, and we brought back many animals, which were then sold to English zoos.
