These are the adventures of two safari guides in Africa.
As best friends since their early days at school, each of them has
developed a passion and an abiding love for the ways of Africa, its
culture and its fauna and flora. The opportunity to pass on their
knowledge and experience of their environment to others is for
them, an added bonus.
Their stories take us on a variety of individual journeys where for
instance, Sam and his clients survive a terrifying lion charge; where
we witness an extraordinary event involving a stricken zebra foal
at a lonely waterhole. We read about Gabriel and the buffalo, and
how the realities of life and death on the Savannah are brought
dramatically home to one unfortunate traveller, and we experience
the greed and cruelty of animal poaching.
The wild waters of the “Mighty Zambezi” very nearly claim the
life of one of our guides, whilst another finds himself trapped by
an unfamiliar species. Finally, we read about what can go wrong on
safaris, either through mistakes or sheer bad luck.
Wherever they go and whatever adventures they have, Sam and
Gabriel’s primary goal is to enable travelers from many parts of
the world, to be a part of a unique experience that will remain with
