    1. I've just been on a wonderful safari trip to Kenya! At least that's how it felt. I haven't of course, I've only read about it in Safari Ants, Baggy Pants and Elephants but it did feel as though I were really taking part in this dream holiday in Africa.Susie Kelly has a wonderful way with words and descriptions and a fantastic sense of humour so I knew that this new book of hers would be a good read. I've been a huge fan of her books for years. Usually her books are about travelling around France [...]

    2. What a treat traveling back to Kenya with Susie Kelly on SafariIf you love reading books on Africa, you will love Safari Ants, Baggy Pants and Elephants! The author heads back to East Africa, this time on safari, and gives you great armchair visuals. The people, animals and scenery are wonderfully described. The author's heart lies in Kenya and her writing's make me yearn to visit even more. I highly recommend!

    3. Is it a good idea to revisit your childhood? For Susie Kelly it definitely was as you will discover in this fantastic book. I first became a fan of Susie back in the UK when I read of her move to France, and her adventures and exploits since. In 2014 she released I Wish I Could Say I Was Sorry, a poignant memoir, which included her wonderful childhood in Africa, and this is its long awaited sequel. In this book we join Susie, and her husband Terry, as they take up an invitation from her old frie [...]

    4. This is the latest travel memoir from Susie and once again I was captivated from chapter one. For me, being back in a Susie Kelly book is comforting as well as entertaining and this one didn’t disappoint. If I had to describe this book in just one word, it would be thoughtful. Susie, who grew up in Kenya, returns with her husband Terry for the safari opportunity of a lifetime. She thoughtfully shares her Kenya with us; the sights and colours, the sounds and scents, as well as the fabulous meal [...]

    5. Great information for travellers in a humorous informative travel storySusie Kelly tells the story of her travels to Kenya, the land where she grew up, in a really funny way and at the same time gives lots of information for would-be travellers to Kenya.Susie’s longest standing friend Vivienne, owner of As You Like It Safaris in Kenya, invited Susie and Terry on a safari and was not going to take no for an answer. The itinerary included visiting five of Kenya’s greatest wildlife reserves and [...]

    6. Enjoyable readI very much enjoyed this book though I thought I would never get to the end! I learned so much about Kenya and it’s people and wildlife. I would love to go there. I read this on my Kindle so spent much time hard pressing to get information and pictures of the things the author wrote about, that added to the length of the book.I work with people who have Alzheimer’s and dementia, what I learned from this book I will be sharing with them, hooking my tablet up to the TV and showin [...]

    7. I have read most of Susie's books and enjoyed them all. I consider myself rather knowledgeable about wildlife, yet I still found plenty here that was new to me about the animals and the Masai Mara in particular. The way Susie writes is uncommonly accessible and draws you in as if you were being told about the safari and exploits of a good friend, and the juxtaposition between this visit and Susie's youth in Kenya is skilfully done. As the pages turn, the reader finds they have come to know the v [...]

    8. Almost like being in Kenya yourselfI wish I had read this before I went to Kenya. My Swahili would have been better and I would certainly have known more about the wildlife. We could not afford the posh luxury Kelly describes in this book, but even in our cut-rate trip in 2018, we experienced much of what Kelly describes in vivid detail. I too loved Kenya, even without her nostalgic memories.

    9. Having thoroughly enjoyed all Susie Kelly's books, and as I was born in Kenya, I couldn't wait to read her latest book - it certainly did not disappoint!Susie's humour and love of Africa is evident on every page, as she so accurately and vividly describes the awesome landscape, the animals, birds, colours and sounds of this wonderful country. An enjoyable entertaining and informative read, not to be missed!

    10. Excellent account of an English lady's safari in Kenya, a land she had land in which she had lived in as a child and young adult and would always remember and love. Her adventures on the safari and her nostalgia for Kenya and it's native people are recounted vividly. It's easy for the reader to share her awe, affection and memories of this beautiful country.

    11. Reliving the DreamWhen I started reading this book so much of it sounded familiar. Then I realized I was reliving my safari to Kenya. There were so many of the same things I remember. And every animal they saw I saw too. Great read if you've ever been to Kenya or plan on going

    12. Not great but a good book. Easy read. Author goes out on a tangent sometimes but worth the time spent reading it. Bought the book because I am planning a trip to Kenya and gave me some insights into a country I know so little about.

    13. SpecialSusie's books are special. They have transported me to places that I'll never get to visit. They have also expanded my knowledge of the wonderful world in which we live. Highly recommended!

    14. A love for KenyaThe author really loves the people of Kenya and the scenery. Having lived there in her youth gave her a foundation for the book. She compares then and now effectively to the reader. It was a bit wordy but I did enjoy this book.
