Swapping yarns around a campfire in the middle of the African bush is what dreams are made of.
The sounds and smells of the animals mixed with the excitement of what lies ahead is why so many people opt for a on foot safari.
Jeff Williams is an experienced guide who has clocked up many fascinating memories during his career and he has captured this treasure trove of stories in an exciting new book.
On Foot in the African bush is filled with tales of the highs and the lows of taking part in a walking trail, the ultimate adventure.
The guides provide the expertise to allow the visitor to see and hear the best of the bush and to protect them from any unexpected dramas.
The book takes you through many encounters from charging lions, angry elephants, cantankerous buffalos, curious rhinos and worst of all and everyone’s enemy, the poachers.
Prepare yourself for stories including a bushman guide who walked through the night with an inexperienced young girl and successfully handled an attack by a hyena, avoided elephants and found shelter and sustenance. And one brave guide who used unorthodox and dangerous techniques to rescue a traveller from the jaws of death.
As with much of the world, the African bush is shrinking rapidly and under threat from the increasingly populated and developing modern world, so Jeff’s book gives a great chance to sit back and inspire a visit.
