Malaika is a wonderful short story about an American searching to find the answers to questions in his life by seeking solitude in the African Serengeti. He is befriended by a lioness, with whom he is able to communicate by telepathy. But the prejudices of humans and the lionesses own pride attempt to thwart this most unlikely of friendships. This leads to a conclusion that is both tragic and life changing.
A simple story beautifully told.
