Description

Looking at animals and the landscape from a vehicle is like watching the movie; walking in the bush is reading the book.

Susie Cazenove, with her wealth of safari experience in East and southern Africa, records and shares her love of Africa through a collection of colourful biographies of some of Africa's foremost professional guides. Interspersed with often amusing, and often hair-raising, anecdotes of life in the bush, she paints a vivid picture of the passion and dedication of this fiercely independent breed. This presentation, beautifully illustrated with the author's own photography and her daughter's charcoal portraits, above all, documents the rise of the safari business into the sophisticated industry that it is today. Susie paints a dramatic picture of both the scenery and the guides who walk us through it; there is no doubt that this book will inspire the armchair – and itinerant – traveller.

About the Author
Susie Cazenove
was born in South Africa, before moving to the UK with her English husband in 1974. She started work in the Africa-travel business in 1988, before teaming up with Henrietta Loyd and opening the doors of Cazenove & Loyd Safaris in 1993, specialising in African and Indian Ocean holidays. With her fierce passion for Africa as her inspiration, Susie quickly realised that the success of a safari holiday is largely dependent on the quality of the guides. She lives in England, has raised four children and still travels frequently to her old stomping grounds in the bush.

The 12 beautiful charcoal sketches of the various guides found in this book were done by Susie's daughter, Jessica Hoffman.
