Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Initial reviews of Eight Days in Africa have been extremely positive, and I am very grateful to those of you who have taken the time to write about the book.  The two radio interviews that I have done regarding the book also went quite well, and I'd like to thank Mike Tomano from WKAN and Bill Bartee and Don Yeager from WBT for having me on.

I just finished reading Eight Days in Africa, The Story of an African Safari. Wow! This was a very good book for the details of setting up, executing and finishing a safari. If I were going to take a safari, this pretty much tells you what you need to know. It gives you the names of outfitters, guides, the agencies you need to work with, the forms you need. Very detailed. Very good. However, I really found myself sharing in the moments of the author. I wanted to keep reading to find out how every moment played out. Very good read! I can't wait for the next book from Mr. Jeffries.

I am in the early stages of planning my African safari, I bought this book on amazon and read it in 3 nights, I purposely took my time to read it once, now I am re-reading it, highlighting the species and companies and starting to make contacts.
Excellant book, well written.

One note for Mr. Jeffries: 7mm is .284 not .277 (page 41)

I've been hunting for a little over 6 years now. I'm 36 but I didn't grow up hunting. My dad was a fisherman and I cherish my times fishing with him. During many of our fishing trips, we'd often talk about hunting and many times our thoughts would turn to Africa and the plentiful and amazing creations that God placed there. Sadly, Dad passed away before we had the opportunity to do much more than squirrel hunting. One of the ways I've honored his memory is learning to hunt for the game we often talked about on our fishing trips. Over 6 years of hunting in the South East, I've been able to accomplish many kills. Now my heart has turned to Africa, and Eight Days in Africa has been a great read to help me get ready for that trip. It goes step by step through your journey. From home to base camp, to being afield to tracking a kill, this book is wonderful! It has wonderfully illustrated stories that help you visualize your time there as well as help you know what to expect. It's a book I would have liked to read with my Dad.. I recommend this book and encourage you to give it to anyone who dreams of the amazing creation that is Africa!

It was hunting experience etc...sounded like this guy's biography which i didn't need. And moreover, as an animal lover I do not like to have hunting experiences etc. Pure game viewing can be brilliant. Poor job.....

I have been thinking of travelling from Oz to join in an African Safari for a few years now, so the book in question sounded like a good place to get some ideas. I read a couple of reviews which spurred my interest even more. I should have read more reviews before jumping in to download the book to my Kindle because as I began to read the introduction I realized, to my horror, that the story was about a hunting Safari. The very thought of killing animals for fun turns my stomach. I will be a lot more careful choosing any other books.
