This Is Africa
Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. The book was interesting but was not what I was looking for based one the information of the writer being a guide and the book showing wildlife on the cover. I expected things to be more about the wildlife and experiences interacting with it, not about highway accidents, people with drug reactions and his excitement of seeing something he hasn't seen before.
While this may be Africa, I feel I was a little mislead. This was just not what I expected and not the type of book I thought it would be. Although this book is an array of crazy moments, I fell in love with George as Mat did. Elephants are special social creatures. I do believe some animals hear our thoughts and intentions, especially when we are actively seeking a bond. I have experienced it myself. And poor Bruce, what a ride. If you are thinking about taking a safari, read this book.
It will give you first hand information from a sensitive, and often times amusing, safari guide who takes his job seriously. Mat Dry doesn't pull any punches when describing local situations that can be trying.

But, he loves Africa, and the animals and takes good of his guests. The good news is you can even join him in real life on a great African adventure. I liked the sense of finding love and excitement in what can easily be a terrifying place. I have hunted Africa and can only regret the lack of feeling in our guide. Every animal I saw created the same awe and wonder that Mat Dry so appealingly and effectively lets his readers experience..

Fine reading for any adventurer. One person found this helpful. I joined one of Mat's safari groups in May Those 4 weeks were the most unforgettable adventure of a lifetime. Reading Mat's book felt like I was right back in Africa. I have never met someone so incredibly passionate, fearless and amazed by the wildness of nature. A true explorer and story teller. Mat's book is a fantastic insight into the wonderful and wild experience that a safari in Africa can offer.
His stories are together funny and witty, exhilarating and scary, heartbreaking and personal. He captures the rawness of each experience so candidly. Mat's honest and compassionate nature shines warmly in his writing. Thank you Mat, this was such a special read. I hope to be back again on the truck one day soon! Mat pulls you in to his life with his thoughts and experiences in Africa. Although the book ends in a very natural manner, I found myself desiring far more of his experiences to be shared on the written page so that they could also be savored.
If the author has the time to follow through with more books, you can bet I will read them! Moreover, Mat creates a desire to safari with TIA - I have put this on my to do list, future permitting! Well written and nicely edited!
I thought I'd have Not really what I expected. I thought I'd have more stories of adventures in the wilds of Africa, hunting and exploring, this book didn't have them. I stumbled across this book after returning from a recent safari and wow Anyone venturing or who has yet to venture to the Land of the Big Five can easily envision his adventures that make Africa Safari guides have such an infectious personality and passion about them that you can't help but want to go along for the ride.
