About halfway up the cobblestone stairwell, the screeching starts.

Loose stones tumble from the tops of the walls far up on the hilltop.

All around me, tree limbs shake.

It’s just after dawn, and I’m alone, climbing the trail to the 15th-century royal compound on the hilltop at Great Zimbabwe in southern Africa.

Alone, except for the baboons.
