Whatever You Do, Don't Run: True Tales of a Botswana Safari Guide
Title: Whatever You Do, Don't Run: True Tales of a Botswana Safari Guide
Author: Peter Allison
A hilarious, highly original collection of essays based on the Botswana truism: only food runs! Allison presents the guides-eye view of living in the bush, confronting the worlds fiercest terrain of wild animals, and managing herds of gaping tourists.
Whatever You Do, Don’t Run is a hilarious collection of true tales from top safari guide Peter Allison. In a place where the wrong behavior could get you eaten, Allison has survived face-to-face encounters with big cats, angry elephants, and the world’s most unpredictable animals — herds of untamed tourists and foolhardy guides whose outrageous antics sometimes make them even more dangerous than a pride of hungry lions!
Join Allison as he faces down charging lions — twice; searches for a drunk, half-naked tourist who happens to be a member of the British royal family; drives a Land Rover full of tourists into a lagoon full of hippos; and adopts the most vicious animal in Africa as his “pet.” Full of lively humor and a genuine love and respect for Botswana and its rich wildlife, Whatever You Do, Don’t Run takes you to where the wild things are and introduces you to a place where every day is a new adventure!
