Safari Ants, Baggy Pants And Elephant:
A Kenyan Odyssey
by Susie Kelly

'Vivid, moving, entertaining. Anybody thinking of taking a safari holiday in Kenya, or who would like to take an armchair safari to Kenya, should read this book.'

Susie Kelly Kenyan Safari book

Susie's book was written while on safari with As You Like It Safaris led by Vivien. To see a slideshow of the safari, click here.

If you have been on a safari, you will be reminded of the places you visited and the animals you saw, or perhaps hoped to see, but didn't. If you are wondering whether to go on a safari, and if Kenya is a suitable place to go, Susie's descriptions will whet your appetite and hopefully calm your fears.

If you have lived in Kenya, as I have, you will love this book. It reminded me of many things - why I loved living there, the kindness of the Kenyan people, the sights and, most strikingly, the smells of Kenya. Few other writers bother to tell you how places smell. Click here to get the book on Amazon. — Vivien

Vivien Prince, Founder of As You Like It Safaris, was ecstatic when the real thrill of safari was right on top of the vehicle! This happy band of photographers enjoyed the Cheetah's trust.
