  • For many years I had wanted to start a zoo any reasonable person smitten with an ambition of this sort would have secured the zoo first and obtained the animals afterwards but throughout my life I have rarely if ever achieved what I wanted by tackling it in a logical fashion A Zoo in My Luggage is Gerald Durrell s account of his attempt to set up his own zoo, after years spent gathering animals for other zoos Journeying to Cameroon, he and his wife collected numerous mammals, birds and reptiles, including Cholmondely the chimpanzee and Bug eye the bush baby.But their problems really began when they attempted to return with their exotic menagerie Not only had they to get them safely home to Britain but they also had to find somewhere able and most of all willing to house them.Told with wit and a zest for all things furry and feathered, Gerald Durrell s A Zoo in My Luggage is a brilliant account of how a pioneer of wildlife preservation came to found a new type of zoo.

    1. This is an autobiographical account of how Gerald Durrell (an already much experienced 'animal rustler') assembled his own private collection of exotic animals which, in due course and against considerable odds, became the backbone of his zoo on the island of Jersey (now the Durrell Wildlife Park).I would not normally want to read about wild animals in a zoo, but this is the story of a passionate animal lover who is committed to doing what it takes to save at least some of the species that manki [...]


    2. I got hooked on this author watching the PBS series about his family and their time on the island of Corfu. Durrell's books are laugh out loud funny and educational at the same time. Must reads for anyone with a love of animals. This book deals with the trials and tribulations of collecting a zoo and then finding a place to put it. I fell in love with the Fons - the village leader where the Durrells stayed when collecting and hope there is more of his story in books I haven't yet read. A re [...]


    3. When this, and the others in the series, first came out I devoured them eager for the mysteries of Africa and its birds and animals and remarkable characters. Having now traveled to many of the countries so well described, I have recognised some of the animals and birds Durrell describes and memories of the Bafut of Fon come flooding back. Read and enjoy, then visit if you can.



    4. Made me want to travel the world to save animals or just go to the local zoo!I am rather conflicted about zoose animals frequently appear to be miserable or at least bored.However, the story was interesting.


    5. My love of animals and my curiosity of the wild made this an enjoyable read. I have never wanted a zoo of my own but it is fun to imagine one.
