    Jorge Alves de Lima with Lion

    Born in 1926 to an influential Brazilian family, Jorge Alves de Lima made his first journey to French Equatorial Africa at age 22, armed with a Kodak Medalist camera and a Holland & Holland double barrel rifle. For much of the following twenty years Jorge roamed the African continent, establishing a formidable reputation as a professional hunt­er and an astute businessman, operating safari companies in Angola and Mozambique, most notably Kirongozi Safaris. He also pursued jag­uar throughout the Pantanal region in Brazil.

    Presently, Jorge divides his time between his home in São Paulo and his ranch in Álvaro de Carvalho, where he enjoys the company of lions and tigers that link him to his African past.

    Jorge has previously written two other books: In the Company of Adven­ture (2006) and Chasing the Horizon: Hunting in East Africa and India (2010), both published by Trophy Room Books.
