Publisher's Summary

Africa can be scary. And thrilling. Often, that's the same thing! Lloyd Camp takes you on an evocative journey through some of the wildest places in Africa as he relives colorful vignettes from his adventurous childhood and long career as a safari guide. This is a charming, funny, thoughtful, and often hair-raising series of short stories that illustrate Lloyd's enthusiastic delight in leading his clients into the wilderness areas of Africa. 

Forthright yet lighthearted, Lloyd's suspenseful narrative emphasizes both his love of the African bush and the courage and resilience of the Africans that he encounters in his odysseys. In the vein of Peter Allison's Whatever You Do, Don't Run, these campfire tales are the perfect accompaniment to your own journey into Africa or simply as a series of highly engaging stories from the comfort of your own armchair at home.

Great Stories, Terrible Audio Quality

I really enjoyed the first 2/3 of the book. Lloyd’s safari adventures were delightful. They were exciting, humorous, and well written. It got me excited for my upcoming safari trip to Kenya.

Unfortunately, the last third went into stories about him running a marathon, time in boot camp, and saving a friend from drowning. They were interesting, but very disjointed from the rest of the book.

Lloyd was a great reader, but the audio quality was atrocious. It had echoes, was muddled, and occasionally mic booms.
