A Hippo Banquet

Rating: 3 out of 5.

This was an interesting read. The Hippo Banquet features travel stories by Mary Kingsley, being an explorer in a time where female explorers were very rare. So for that I found it interesting to read about and she actually writes quite well. However, her views are very Victorian (obviously) and I’ve found that I never like these travel stories very much.
