This book is entertaining and educational. It is also filled with hilarious stories about a young man with a love for animals who worked as a tour guide in Africa.You will not go wrong with this book. I hope Peter Allison will write more books in the future.
Being sprayed by the honey badger that was trying to protect him from a fake leopard.
This book made me laugh out loud!
I hope that Anthony Ferguson will narrate many books in the future. He is great at making the story come to life.
My purchase for this listen was based on a love for animals and the book's title . In retrospect I should have browsed through the reviews first. I just found it dull.
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.
