"When Cultures Collide" is the last of the trilogy about a safari in Africa fifteen years ago. In the first book, "13 Days in Africa," the five passengers and their guide were kidnapped by bandits and left to die in a remote area of the African savanna. A young Maasai warrior found them and took them to his village. They discover that Kashima, his fourteen-year-old sister, is dying as a result of a botched female circumcision.

His aunt and uncle, the only family he has, want him to return to America and be a partner in his uncle's surgery practice. When forced to decide between loyalty to his family and his love for Namoka, his decision has unexpected results. Namoka is also torn between love for Ero and for her homeland.
