Unabridged Audiobook

Narrated By: Antony Ferguson

Publisher: Tantor Media

Duration: 6 hours 47 minutes


Whatever You Do, Don't Run is a hilarious collection of true tales from top -safari guide Peter Allison. In a place where the wrong behavior could get you eaten, Allison has survived face-to-face encounters with big cats, angry -elephants, and the world's most unpredictable animals—herds of untamed tourists and foolhardy guides whose outrageous antics sometimes make them even more dangerous than a pride of hungry lions!

Join Allison as he faces down charging lions—twice; searches for a drunk, half-naked tourist who happens to be a member of the British royal family; drives a Land Rover full of tourists into a lagoon full of hippos; and adopts the most -vicious animal in Africa as his "pet." Full of lively humor and a genuine love and respect for Botswana and its rich wildlife, Whatever You Do, Don't Run takes you to where the wild things are and introduces you to a place where every day is a new adventure!

    Loved this collection of stories., both content and style. Africa brings out the best. Reminds me of another favorite: West with the Night.
