After flying in a DC-3 for three days, Jorge Alves de Lima hit the dusty streets of Fort Archambault, today Sarh, Chad. For the next 21 years, he would live from hunting, exclusively from it, on the African continent. In Fort Archambault, he worked ​for a Portuguese merchant, met some white hunters and, more importantly, learned the Sango - the language of the region. He walked 1,200 kilometers in search of elephants through the forests and savannas of Bogangolo and Bossangoa. 

   

The Call of Africa is a book that cannot be read outside its historical context: Equatorial Africa during the 40s and 50s through the eyes of a professional hunter.

In this riveting collection of hunting stories, Alves de Lima describes in great detail his many trips through the heart of Africa and Brazil in pursuit of the most beautiful—and dangerous—animals on the planet.

Hunting in East Africa and India

DeLima arrived in Africa in 1948 and for 10 years he hunted mainly on his own and primarily for ivory. Then, in the 1950s, when new regulations and changing political winds foreshadowed changes in his nomadic lifestyle, Jorge became involved in the more structured safari business. During his career, which extended until almost 1970, he took clients hunting in Tanganyika and Kenya by forming associations with other professionals, and also had concessions of his own in Mozambique and Angola. His Kirongozi Safari Company was widely known and highly regarded throughout the then international hunting community and his Mozambique company later merged with Werner von Alvensleben's Mozambique Safariland. Although Jorge has been all over Africa, he still described Tanganyika as a hunters’ paradise. It was, in Jorge’s words, “a hidden and distant dot on the map capable of sheltering and protecting any mortal imbued with the spirit of adventure from the bitter realities of the present.” Those were the days when standing to the charge of a lion, buffalo or elephant was a courageous and daring experience and when safaris were conducted without telephone or tarmac.

In 1948 he got married to Africa and never looked back.


Born into a wealthy, almost aristocratic, family, Jorge Alves de Lima could have been, or had, anything he wanted. So, in 1948, after graduating from college, he headed for Africa, specifically the vast expanse that was then French Equatorial Africa. For the next twenty plus years he would travel through no less than eight different countries as a hunter, a professional hunter, an ivory hunter, an explorer, the founder of not one but two safari companies in two different countries and, above all, as an adventurer.

 

After the second world war there was a small window of opportunity when a big game hunter with courage and desire could venture to and through the great African gamelands and find much of the country as it had been 50 or even 100 years before.

 

Jorge hunted in French Equatorial Africa that at the time included Tchad, Oubangui-Chari, and Congo-Brazzavile. He also hunted in Sudan, Zambia (Barotseland) and Tanzania and founded safari companies both in Angola and Mozambique. He later combined companies with the noted werner von Alvensleben in Mozambique; in fact, Safariland’s second main camp, after Ruark Camp, was named Alves de Lima Camp.
