This book was a collection of stories by an Australian-born safari guide mainly in the Okavango Delta of Botswana. I really enjoyed most of the stories. I wish I could give this book 3.5 stars. I did not rate it higher because sometimes it seemed like the author was bragging more about his exploits that should not have been bragged about - intruding upon animals, ruining safari equipment, nearly getting himself killed on numerous occasions. However, it was still very entertaining and some of the stories were laugh out loud funny.

This book reminds me of Robert Sapolsky's "A Primate's Memoir" but does not even come close to the awesomeness that is that book.

I would recommend this if you are lookign for some light reading and want to see what it might be like to be a safari guide in Botswana (awesome).
