Charming, sometimes heart-stopping tales of an African Safari guide. I enjoyed every moment of it - the stories, the educational bits, and the author's self-effacing humour.
It was a great story and the humor added a lot
Would like Peter Allison's other books in audio format
The narrator has a pronounced accent (to the American ear). At first, I found listening very difficult. However, I soon caught onto the rhythm of his speech and to the unfamiliar patterns of pronunciation and, within a chapter or two, found the reading quite pleasant.
I've been on safari a number of times, and always wondered what it would be like to be one of the guides. As I listened to Mr. Allison's tales, I felt like one of his comrades sitting around the campfire, exchanging stories about encounters with wild animals and khaki-clad tourists like myself. I very much enjoyed this book.
Met my expectations. Loved the early story about the mouse problem and how it was handled. I will never go back to Africa, but it brought back good memories.
I'm just a book lover!
This was a great and easy listen. Interesting and comical stories. I enjoyed the narration by Antony Ferguson as well.
