Overview

From the hair-raising to the hilarious, Whatever You Do, Don’t Run reveals the reality of game ranging as experienced by four very human rangers.

Crammed with facts on the African bush and its wildlife, the book also gives the wannabe ranger answers to guiding conundrums such as: - What to say when the crocodile-infested river you’re driving through turns out to be just a little deeper than you had thought – and the engine stalls? - How to hide from ten curious guests the fact that you have just been bitten by a puff adder? - And, perhaps most importantly, how to save the life of the camp’s barman using only Milton’s drain cleaner. Exquisite black and white drawings and photographs add to the charm of this easy and entertaining read, which will have you longing for the bush.
