Overview

From the author of the #1 Bestseller The Why Café, comes this much anticipated next work—an inspiring and emotionally powerful story set amidst the mystery, beauty, and allure of Africa.

Jack is a young man struggling to find happiness in his life. Although he doesn’t know why, the one image that seems to capture his soul is that of Africa. With solitary focus, he saves for two years and then embarks on a journey to find the source of the calling he has felt.

Halfway around the world, a very old, very wise African woman named Ma Ma Gombe is on a journey of her own. She is seeking a fabled destination she was told of as a child—“a place where you can see the earth be born, and then watch the world go to sleep, a place so beautiful that words cannot describe it.” It is a destination known to her only as “the birthplace of all.”

As if their paths were destined to intertwine, these two unlikely travelers meet shortly after Jack’s arrival in Africa and join together on a journey that changes both of their lives forever.

Walk with them as they cross the African continent on foot. Marvel with them at the animals they encounter, the people they meet, and the adventures they experience. Like Jack, find through the teachings of Ma Ma Gombe that piece of your soul yearning to be set free.

In Life Safari, John P. Strelecky has created a story that inspires and taps the spirit for adventure in readers everywhere. A tale that will touch your emotions, open your eyes to the amazing continent of Africa, and open your heart to the amazing potential within all of us.
