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.

Format: Paperback
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)

this was a great read for anyone planning on such a trip as well as for anyone who enjoys hunting and the outdoors. I hope Sean gets to go back so we can hear about that safari also.
