Safari Ants, Baggy Pants And Elephant:
A Kenyan Odyssey
by Susie Kelly

'Vivid, moving, entertaining. Anybody thinking of taking a safari holiday in Kenya, or who would like to take an armchair safari to Kenya, should read this book.'

Susie Kelly Kenyan Safari book

Susie's book was written while on safari with As You Like It Safaris led by Vivien. To see a slideshow of the safari, click here.

If you have been on a safari, you will be reminded of the places you visited and the animals you saw, or perhaps hoped to see, but didn't. If you are wondering whether to go on a safari, and if Kenya is a suitable place to go, Susie's descriptions will whet your appetite and hopefully calm your fears.

Vivien Prince, Founder of As You Like It Safaris, was ecstatic when the real thrill of safari was right on top of the vehicle! This happy band of photographers enjoyed the Cheetah's trust.

Tour Leaders: Jeff Sink and Vivien Prince

Jeff Sink is a retired history teacher / basketball coach and lifelong wildlife and photography fanatic. He has been to Africa over 25 times and fell in love with the continent many years ago. He only leads one safari per year because he wants his safaris to be life changing experiences and the best possible animal and birding observation and photographic trips possible.

In his words, “I do not run these trips for profit as I am only interested in teaching photography, wildlife behavior, and showcasing East Africa. My ultimate objective is to create a group of committed people who will return from Kenya with a burning desire to do what they can to preserve our wildlife and natural locations for the future generations. I run my trips with a lifelong Kenyan, Vivien Prince, (European parents who immigrated to Kenya during the colonial era). She is the owner-operator of "As You Like It Safaris'', based out of Nairobi.”

“Vivien runs a ‘boutique safari company’ which caters to people like us, who love the wildlife and want to be truly immersed in the safari experience. We stay in four and five star lodges and tented camps (my favorite) and we use custom built Land cruisers with unlimited game viewing. Our guides are hand-picked and trained by Vivien and me, and they cater to photographers.”

Mount Kenya is a majestic African mountain, rising 5,199 meters (17,057 ft) above sea level to a snow clad peak. It's a never to be forgotten sight, and one we are proud to share with our guests in association with the experienced mountaineers of the Climb Kenya and Conservation Youth Self-Help Group. You can read more about Mt Kenya here.

Mount Kenya can be climbed by any normal healthy person. The most reliable weather for climbing is between late December and late March and from mid-July to late September. We offer guided treks of 1-7 days, offering something for everyone from casual walkers to accomplished climbers. Click here to see a sample itinerary.
