If, as I was you are thinking about reading this book because you are interested in human wildlife conflict in Africa, I can recommend that you look elsewhere. There is only a brief discussion of current practice and ideas in the final chapter of the book. The rest of it is full of errors, inaccuracies, speculation and poor writing. If you are looking for completely unsubstantiated anecdotes of hunters from a bygone era killing leopards by bashing their heads together or various estimates of the tallies of this or that man-eater then this is the book for you. If on the other hand you are only slightly amused by such tales and looking for a serious book about human wildlife conflict in Africa, a decent Wilbur Smith novel might make a better use of your time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow 9 Aug 2012
By Imran
Format:Kindle Edition
What will really upset people is that he claims hunting safaris are essential to wildlife management and in Kenya, which banned hunting 30 odd years ago, lions and elephants are now treated as vermin.

After last week's mass attacks on the elephants, buffalo and lions of Amboseli this book is very relevant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 9 Aug 2012
By Hakeem
Format:Kindle Edition
James Clarke's "Save Me From the Lion's Mouth" is an eye-opener for animal lovers. He infers that they, and not scientists, are guiding wildlife policy in Africa. He says that people in middle-class homes in Europe and America, fed on TV documentaries, have no idea of the realities of life in the wilder parts of Africa but as long as African governments receive million of overseas dollars from them they'll do anything the donors want.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another good read book by James Clarke 2 Aug 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
James takes an interesting perspective on the topic of human - animal relationship. I thought this was a thought provoking book and I am not sure I agree with all his points, but a very good read anyway!

1.0 out of 5 stars Seriously? 8 Nov 2013
Format:Paperback
Sorry, but this is another apologetic view on how we ought to look with indulgence at "safari" hunting. And, quite frankly, with the rhino and elephant being slaughtered at the rate they are, I cannot see how the author's tally-ho views are either helpful or illuminating.
