Kevin Thomas was born in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) in 1950.

When he was 17 he joined the Rhodesian Department of National Parks and Wildlife Management. Following six years' service and with the escalation of The Rhodesian Bush War, he left the game department and became a charter member of the Selous Scouts. After three years as an operational combat non-commissioned officer, he transferred to the unit's training wing as a counterinsurgency instructor.

Upon leaving the Rhodesian Army he turned to full time professional hunting  and safari guiding across most of southern Africa.

At the end of 2015 he retired from the safari industry and he and his wife Brenda relocated to the UK. They currently live on their 60' narrowboat Sabi Star where Kevin continues his writing, photography, and painting.  

“In its own way (Shadows in

an African Twilight) is Africana – it

provides a partial history of wildlife

management in Rhodesia as well as

being the best account of the bush war

I have yet read. It is a wonderfully

informative ‘how to’ on

African hunting and, in addition

to being a useful reference work,

it is an exciting and intriguing read.”
