I’ll endeavour to keep adding interesting movie, photos and stories to this blog post. The first post after branding under Great Hornbill Expeditions, ‘Tsavo River, Tsavo West’, is a case in point. One story leads inevitably to another. The camp at the Elephant Crossing lies just a few kilometers downstream of the Rhodesia Bridge, that spans the Tsavo River at the foot of a small volcanic cinder cone. A cinder cone that was modified in 1914 into a fortress that guarded the key approach to the East African Railway during the First World War. The fort’s designer, builder and commanding officer was a young and earnest lieutenant of the West Yorkshire Regiment called Charles George Phillips, my maternal grandfather. So that story will have to be told, when I’ve found time to photograph it carefully.
