In an exquisite personal pilgrimage, Corinne Hofmann, author of the global bestseller The White Masai, delves into the slums of Nairobi to uncover the heart-warming and heart-breaking stories of unforgettable people and places, then treks 500 miles across the Namibian desert to discover the lives of the nomadic Himba people. Joined by her half-Kenyan daughter, Napirai, they travel to Nairobi together for the first time to discover Napirai’s roots and finally meet her father and half-siblings. Africa, My Passion is a poignant, touching and exciting story about one woman's love affair with an exotic man, which led to a lifelong obsession with what was once the dark continent. Moving, vividly recounted, eye-opening and, above all, filled with passionate hope and unparalleled detail, this is an extraordinary sequel to a bestselling series of memoirs.

    After my daughter reluctantly takes her leave, Klaus and I have a week of intensive work to do back here in Nairobi. I want to go back and see the slum-dwellers with their ‘Gardens in a Sack’, as well as the Jamii Bora women, just to find out how they’ve all got on in the five months since I last saw them. After that we’re going to fly down to Mombasa where I hope to find Priscilla. I’ve never been able to forgive myself for not getting back in touch with the woman to whom I owe so much. On the last trip to Kenya I couldn’t get in touch with her. But this time I’m determined to make sure I do. I devote an entire week to finding her. I would really like to meet up with her again, and tie up that loose end.
    It is only a short flight from Nairobi to Mombasa, but immediately the atmosphere is different. The air is sultry and tastes of the sea. It’s a tropical air and it immediately makes me think I’ve come
