Hi this book is a must for anyone interested in working in the Safari guiding business. Or any one who is interested in African wildlife, and wants to go on safari. A fantastic read and great advice about what sort of guide to take on and cartoons had me laughing with great stories too. Cannot put it down, and i can tell you this guy is very helpful and friendly and anyone wanting to go on Safari go to this man first. You will have a fantastic time.

Really fun read and so much useful information.

Very well written book, but it only relates to african guides, so avoid it if you're searching something interesting about Africa and "how to".

Amazon have just invited me to review this book. I don't know why, as I've never bought it or heard of it.

They say you can't judge a book by it's cover, but I'll give it a darn good crack.

From the outset, I thought it was about girl guides, but unless they've been eaten by those lions while roasting their marshmallows around a campfire, I'd say it's probably not. More than likely would've made a good story, but alas I think it's connected to safari guides, dressed in khaki, pointing at animals 10ft away. Boy, do they have a tough job.

For anyone that can't see, the book cover is mainly green, but what on earth are you looking at buying a book for anyway?

I'd recommend this book to anyone daft enough to warrant my review as a good summary. The guide appears to have found the lions, so it's off to a good start for anyone wanting to be a Safari Guide. Go for it, what have you got to lose?
