Publisher's Summary

So, who is the jeep-jockey in the khaki uniform and the sweat-stained hat, this person you entrust your life to when you venture into the African wilderness? What’s his back-story, why is he even in this bush-guiding gig, really...and what does he think of you? What secrets does he keep, what chances does he take and what lies does he tell? And which colleagues and clients does he remember? And why?

Lloyd Camp wrote about how thrilling and addictive African wildlife safaris are in his first book, Africa Bites. In Confessions of an African Safari Guide, Lloyd’s thoughtful stories continue to intrigue, provoke, and amuse. The enthralling and often bizarre world of safari guiding continually delivers evocative theatre; now, Lloyd reveals some of the truths and tricks that ensure a dazzling safari experience, while also underscoring the fervour, foibles and frailties of safari guides. His stories interrogate the actions of the people he has worked with, laugh at some fondly held safari legends told as inviolate truths, and question many of the casual life assumptions of the safari guests in his care.

Lloyd is not afraid to lampoon himself...or to poke fun at anyone else! This is a refreshingly forthright view - edgy, heart-warming, personal, pointed, often hilarious, sometimes dark - of the strange and compelling people, ludicrous predicaments, and harsh realities that he has encountered on his journeys through the African wilderness. And if you think you recognise yourself in this audiobook, you’re right!
