Blissfully unaware of what the politicians called "the winds of change" in Africa, many of the delightful characters whom we first came to know in Selengai reappear here, living in that safe pocket of time before the simmering resentment of some of the indigenous Kenyan population escalated into the fanatical hatred that eventually resulted in full-scale terrorist groups, known collectively as the Mau Mau, who demanded independence from British rule. Whispering Grass will take you across the vast, sunburnt plains once more and lead you back to Selengai, Bahati and Saba Saba, the lives of their owners and those of their children. As the gentle breezes ripple the grasses so will it take you on safari into another more tranquil era where only the African wild could disturb the even tenor of their lives.
