“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.

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.

Review of Suburbanites on Safari by Marcia Polevoi

After reading my recently released book, Suburbanites on Safari: Chasing Lions and Giraffes in South Africa and Zimbabwe, Marcia Polevoi wrote a wonderful and insightful review that follows.

“I have always wanted to go to Africa to see all the wildlife. However, we are of an age that now prevents us from going on a Safari. But reading Alex’s book took me right there and I met lions, and elephants and big cats and more. I felt like I was right there riding in the jeep and seeing the animals up close. Each chapter was about a particular animal and Alex gave detailed and informative information about each one. He also writes in an very humorous way and had me chuckling all through the book. Anyone thinking about going on Safari should read this book, and even, like me, you cannot get there, this gives you a real feeling for being there. –Marcia Plevoi, Beachwood, Ohio.

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 free truck drivers dating sites 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, visit site 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.
