    Book Front Cover



    Here is a bit more about the book On the Tracks of the Big Five in Angola

    Jorge Alves de Lima's third book, On the Tracks of the Big Five in Angola, takes readers on a grand journey filled with adventure, sport and romance during the second half of the twentieth century. The renowned hunter and author picks up where his previous books left off, telling the story of his years in Angola running the safari company, Kirongozi Angola, his return to Brazil where he hunted the jaguar, and of his subsequent days at his expansive ranch, where he lives with his beloved big cats.



    For over forty years, Alves de Lima travelled through some of the world's harshest and most mysterious landscapes, hunting everything from elephants and rhinos to lions and jaguars. One of the most respected professional hunters of the modern era, Alves de Lima also was an explorer and consummate busiュness man who introduced people from around the globe to the sport of big game hunting.



    In this riveting collection of hunting stories, the author 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. Faced with the perils of wildlife in addition to local conflicts and international politics, life on the hunt was always a challenge - Alves de Lima was ever the man to rise to the occasion.



    Accompanied by hundreds of stunning photographs as well as first-hand accounts of his fellow hunters, including such luminaries as Bill Negley, Hugo Seia, Tony Sanchez-Arino, Oscar Anibal Picarra de Castro Cardoso, Alberto de Castilho, Rubens Ribeiro Marx Junior, and Richard Mason, this book takes the reader on a safari of their own, resplendent with all of the trials and the glory of hunting big game. It is a journey of intrigue and of a life well lived and full of daring: the life of a true adventurer.



    On the Tracks of the Big Five in Angola was published independently and printed in a limited edition of 1,000 copies, which are numbered and signed by the author.


    Here is a little bit about Professional Hunter Jorge Alves de Lima Filho

    The Author, Jorge Alves de Lima Filho


    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 Sao Paulo and his ranch in Alvaro 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.
