“An amazing real life perspective on African safari that has been delightfully shared. Funny and witty. Footsteps well worth following.” –Philip Coetzee, South Africa, Advanced Nature Guide, author of Birds for Beginners.

“If a trip to Africa is in your plans, this entertaining and informative book, jam-packed with photos of animals and birds, will help you make the first step on the way to your dream. If you are interested in wildlife, nature, and animal protection, the story will enrich your knowledge of the animal kingdom. At the very least, it is just fun to read.”—GTA Books.

Four friends, all big-city dwellers, embark on their first African safari. An internationally published travel writer and her husband, an award-winning travel photographer, are joined by their life-long friends on a journey to South Africa and Zimbabwe. Previously, their exploration of over 60 countries took them to big cities and historical monuments around the globe. But this trip is different.

Traveling around Kruger National Park and Victoria Falls, they crisscross the bush and meet African wildlife in its natural habitat. Which predators, grass eaters, branch nibblers, and birds of prey did they find? What did the animals do in the presence of people? How did it feel to be only a few feet away from a pride of lions devouring their kill, a herd of suspicious elephants, an intimidating Cape buffalo, or an unpredictable rhinoceros?

In an easy to read, conversational style, the author, Alex Shaland, delivers a fair mix of wildlife photography, animal and bird factual data, and practical information. Shaland shares his experiences as a first-time safari explorer and sprinkles the narrative with a good dose of humor and personal stories.

Here is what Nic Griffin, Chief Executive of The Thornybush Game Lodge Collection, had to say after reviewing Alex Shaland’s new book “Suburbanites on Safari”

“Alex’s book is a fascinating intro to Safari choice criteria, its also easy light reading and simplistic in its aim to assist those that may travel often, but not au fait with Safari lingo. It adequately gives a heads up on what needs to be considered in an almost entertaining way.” –Nic Griffin, Chief Executive, The Thornybush Luxury Game Lodge Collection.

About the Author of Suburbanites on Safari

Alex Shaland at the desk with a computer and books in the background

Many of our readers who follow my wife Irene Shaland’s books, magazine articles, and lectures know me as a photographer who’s photos appeared in Irene’s publications and slide presentations. But only few know that I am also a writer myself. Now, that my first book http://amaterrallye.cz/978-dte46167-are-there-scams-on-dating-sites.html Suburbanites on Safari is in print and sold in several countries, I felt it appropriate to say a few words about my writing career.

I started my writing almost against my will. In 1990, when I was a young engineer, my friend, John was hired as an Editor of one of the Penton Publishing magazines and asked me if I wanted to contribute a small article. I initially declined, but John was persistent. Finally, I took a deep breath and stepped on the thin ice of creative writing. Little did John know that he had awakened a sleeping writer in me and gave an outlet to my creative energy. I have been writing ever since.

In addition to writing my own magazine articles published by Penton Publishing and other journals, I contributed as an editor and photographer to the success of my wife Irene Shaland’s books and articles that appeared in various magazines in the U.S., Canada, U.K., and East Africa.

My photographs have appeared in over 20 publications and online sources including Holiday Magazine (France/U.K.), The Boston Forward, Tikkun, ZEEK, Diarna Digital Heritage Mapping, Hackwriters (U.K.), IMAGE Magazine, ROMAR Travel, Design World Magazine and other publications printed in Baltimore, Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Los Angeles, San Antonio, Washington D.C., London (U.K.), Nairobi (Kenya), Seoul (Korea), and Toronto (Canada).

I had several solo photography shows and participated in exhibitions at the Artists Archives of the Western Reserve, Opus Gallery, Leesa’s, Jacky Ray’s, Whimzy Gifts, and various public venues in Cleveland, Fort Lee (NJ), New City (NY), and Detroit (MI).

My first book, http://www.justpressplay.net/134-dte84734-online-dating-for-people-over-50----best-sites.html Suburbanites on Safari, has started as a collection of memories from our South Africa and Zimbabwe trip and captions for my photo exhibitions. Public interest in one of my photography shows, “Face-to-Face with African Wildlife,” that traveled to several venues around the country, encouraged me to start working on arranging my notes and photos into this book. And now that the work on this book is done, it is time to start the next one. Travel, see the world, capture your adventures in photos, and write about them… What’s there not to like?

Elephant in Amboseli National Park, Kenya

Photo Title: Elephant walking while a storm is brewing over Amboseli National Park, Kenya.

The photo of this elephant is my entry for the 2019 AAWR Members Annual Exhibition. I took this photo during our 2013 Great Migration trip to Kenya and Tanzania in Amboseli National Park in Kenya. The sun was setting down, and dark clouds were rapidly moving in. On the way to the lodge, we passed this majestic animal rapidly walking along the side of the road. The plains, the dark clouds, and the walking giants were too dramatic not to snap a photo.

We came to Amboseli while racing across the Serengeti Plains following thousands of wildebeests and zebras on their 900-mile long Great Migration route. Situated at the foot of Kilimanjaro, Amboseli is one of the largest reserves in Kenya and is specifically dedicated to preservation of elephants. With the area of approximately 150 square miles, the park has plenty of open space for almost a thousand African elephants. They are all larger species–the bush African elephant. The smaller forest African elephant is almost half the size of its larger brother.

In addition to elephants, there were plenty of opportunities to spot cape buffalos, giraffes, hyenas, lions, monkeys, and wildebeests, not counting a great variety of birds. And as a bonus, on a clear day you can see the magnificent Mount Kilimanjaro, the world’s highest free-standing mountain.

Amboseli National Park is easy to drive to. Located on the border with Tanzania, it is only 150 miles southeast of Kenya’s capital Nairobi. You can also hop on a small airplane and fly to the Amboseli Airport.

Book Review: Birds for beginners in Southern Africa by Philip Coetzee

Review by Philip Coetzee

If you look for a field guide, this is the wrong book, but if you want to understand more about birds, about their biology, habits and habitat, this is the perfect book.  In a fun way, with random cartoons and loads of colorful illustrations, the life of birds is described, from the size of the eggs, the type of chicks, how they fly, migration and where the birds can be found.

 Amongst other, the book takes a look at the structure of the bird’s beaks and compare this to everyday items, like that of a woodpecker with a hammer and chisel.  Not to mention the illustrations on the various foot designs found amongst birds.  The various nest types, and there are quite a number of different types, and where they are build, is discussed.  The habitats are colorfully illustrated with examples of the most typical species one will find there.

 Handy tips for building a nest box, a small pond in the garden and attracting birds to your garden are given.  And if you are keen on making birding a serious hobby, you will also find handy tips on binoculars, what to wear and how to look like a real Twitcher, Dude or Birder.

 This book is for the whole family, with easy to understand text accompanied by illustrations that makes it easy for young and old to enjoy the wonderful world of Aves, commonly known as BIRDS.
