Juma on Safari
Lisa Maria Burgess, author
Juma and his family drive across Tanzania to visit his grandmother in the second book of the Tanzania Juma Stories. Now eight years old, he and his young sister, Sareeya, enjoy adventures from Dar es Salaam across to the plains of the Serengeti. During the journey, they see Mt. Kilimanjaro and encounter an obstinate elephant, a drooling giraffe, and wrestling beetles. The story introduces northern Tanzania and ki-Swahili words for animals. The story is supplemented with a national map of the United Republic of Tanzania, a map of the continent of Africa, and a ki-Swahili language glossary.
