Safarini: Many Journeys is a cross-section of the diaries written by Margaret Ann Hayes, from 1958, while on adventurous and photographic safaris with her husband, friends and sometimes with their children.

As a District Agricultural Officer with British Government, her husband, Victor Burke, expert in the growing of tea, coffee and pyrethrum, took many safaris into rural areas where Margaret, a photo- journalist, met and wrote about the African people with whom she met and made friends. Other safaris took them into the famed Maasai Mara to watch and photograph lions at an evening kill, elephants watching over their young, hyena waiting for herds to come and drink at dusk and the many other interesting animals and birds who live there. Over the years, safaris led to Lake Baringo, Lake Hannington, and after an English leave, the family were stationed at Lake Nakuru where flamingo and other water birds were studied and photographed. In Tanzania's Ngorongoro Crater, known as the 'Cradle of Man' she met leopard on a kill, wondered in awe at the millions of wildebeest and zebra that roamed the crater and the prides of black-maned lions who hunted them. She looked at the graves of pioneering ecologist Dr. Bernhard Grzimek and his some Michael, both set with a marker on the Crater rim. Michael died when his zebra-striped plane crashed after it hit a vulture during the filming of Serengeti Shall not Die. His father completed the book of the same title, spending the rest of his life working to support wildlife conservation, especially in Tanzania. Photographs of Dr. Grzimek and his son beside the plane in the Serengeti, were given to Margaret by Dr. Grzimek shortly after his son's death. The photographs are seen in this book.
