A charming, off-the-wall and thoroughly entertaining travel book recounting the true-life adventures of a young safari guide living in the Botswana bush, confronting the world's fiercest terrain and wildest animals and, most challenging of all, herds of gaping tourists. Peter Allison works as a top safari guide in the Okavango Delta, an oasis of wetland and wildlife in the middle of the Kalahari desert. Full of outrageous-but-true tales of the people and animals he has encountered - the half-naked missing member of the British royal family; the mouse that overdosed on malaria pills; the monkeys with an underwear fetish; and last, but by no means least, 'Spielberg' the video-obsessed Japanese tourist - Allison's stories are often self-deprecating and always hilarious. His humour is exceeded only by his love and respect for the animals. The next best thing to sitting around a campfire late at night and listening to him talking, 'Don't Run Whatever You Do' is warm, funny and utterly engaging.
