On Safari in Uganda, Hal and Roger manage to capture a varied collection of African animals including a pigeon, hyena, cape buffalo, and leopard. But their efforts are threatened by the antics of fraudulent White Hunter "Colonel" Benjamin Bigg, and by a member of the Leopard Society who is out to kill them.
Richard Phillips cites African Adventure as an example of western authors acknowledging decolonisation, albeit through a traditionally colonial lens. "Though Price acknowledges African anti-colonial resistance," Phillips writes, "he collapses it back into a form of primitivism and savagery." In 2015, Tim Dee, writing for The Guardian, included African Adventure on his list of the "10 best nature books."
