Africa Bites: Scrapes and Escapes in the African Bush
“This is the best book of short stories about Africa that I have ever read.”
– Peter Allison: “Don’t run whatever you Do” & “Don’t look behind You”
Lloyd takes you on an evocative fast-paced journey through some of the wildest places of Africa as he re-lives colourful vignettes from his career as a safari guide as well as his adventurous childhood.
He tells about the formative moments that have left him and his clients amazed, frightened and delighted by the manifold surprises that bush adventures always throw up.
This is a charming, funny, thoughtful and jaw-dropping series of tales that illustrate Lloyd’s enthusiastic delight in being in the wilderness with his clients. Forthright yet light-hearted, here is a story-teller whose suspenseful narrative emphasises the courage and resilience of the Africans (and clients!) that he encounters on his African odysseys.
