Don't Look Behind You! A Safari Guide's Encounters with Ravenous Lions, Stampeding Elephants and Lovesick Rhinos - Peter Allison

€ 17.50

Romantic notions aside, being a safari guide isn’t always particularly glamorous. Quite often it is beset with challenges, like having to spend a night in a thorn tree with marauding hyenas below. But safari guide Peter Allison lives for such moments. Here, the author of the widely praised Whatever You Do, Don’t Run details his time spen t in safari camps not only in Botswana but also in South Africa, Mozambique, and Namibia—places he loves, despite how much it feels like they just might be trying to kill him.

In Don’t Look Behind You, Allison recounts adventures few would live to tell. Like the time he and a group of bored guides launched a makeshift raft into a foaming river teeming with hippos and crocodiles. Or the afternoon he heard monkeys telling him that a leopard was walking around the camp, and then realized the leopard was in his tent, with him in it.

Join Peter Allison for another riveting, rollicking, behind-the-scenes dose of everyone’s dream experience—going on safari—and come through amazed but, thankfully, without a scratch.
