Wild about Africa:
Sleepwalking on Kilimanjaro and Running from Lions
After many years of dreaming about travelling far and wide, Alistair finally took the plunge and headed to Africa for an overland adventure. Days later, he came face to face with a marauding hyena. It didn’t help that he was barefoot, in boxer shorts and a T-shirt, while in the wilds of the Serengeti. Soon after, he was robbed of all his possessions. Luckily, he loaned a pair of pink tracksuit pants and a baggy Arran jumper, to wear while climbing Kilimanjaro, the highest freestanding mountain in the world.
Years later, he returned to Africa, this time with his wife, for the chance to board an overland truck. During the next three months, they walked with lions, tracked rhino on foot, rafted the Zambezi and explored the Okavango Delta. If you've ever wondered what it’s like to drive across the Ngorongoro Crater on a dawn safari, touch the snows of Kilimanjaro, go quad biking across the Namib Desert or visit the prison that once held Nelson Mandela, this fun packed story is just the ticket for an inspirational adventure.
