Tennis and the Masai

By Nicholas Best

‘Wickedly funny’ – Daily Mail

A school where cricketing news comes by carrier pigeon, leopards are assaulted with a red-hot poker, and runaway boys are hunted down with spearmen and a pack of foxhounds … 

Take a nervous Englishman with no previous experience of teaching and drop him into a Kenyan prep school in the middle of Rider Haggard country.

For Martin Riddle, the experience is unforgettable. For the riding mistress, Lady Bullivant, it is all part of the day’s work. And for the headmaster, a disgraced ex-Guards officer, it is simply a means of staving off bankruptcy for a few more weeks.
