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.

If you have lived in Kenya, as I have, you will love this book. It reminded me of many things - why I loved living there, the kindness of the Kenyan people, the sights and, most strikingly, the smells of Kenya. Few other writers bother to tell you how places smell. Click here to get the book on Amazon. — Vivien

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.

This Safari is always a hit. Casual and serious photographer friendly. Everything is included, with no hidden extras (such as gratuities). A visit to Sheldrake Elephant Orphanage is a treat, and our time with the precious children at Hope Streams Academy is always moving. Small group (14 maximum), this Safari comes with two pre-trip add-ons:  'Botswana/Victoria Falls' and 'Cape Town'. Click here to see the itinerary and registration information at DrifterSister.com.

Here is a lovely letter from clients on our recent safari.

Dear Vivien, 

As You Like It Safari’s adventure is the best experience I could hope for. Samburu, Lake Nakuru, and the Maasai Mara were all breathtaking in their beauty, and the variety and numbers of animals we saw were more than I imagined we would see. Ever. We loved the lodges and camp and the food and hospitality was spot on. The resident lion around Nyumbu camp vocalizing at night was exciting. I liked that the camp was open.

Kamara is an excellent guide. He is so kind, intuitive, knowledgeable about all the species, and fun to travel with. He is a pro spotter. We rather felt like royalty having your Safari Landcruiser all to ourselves. We both would return in a flash and I am working on family and friends.

Hope Streams Academy is a work of love. The children are precious and I hope they can continue their education and make a difference in their community.

We enjoyed visiting the Sheldrick Wildlife refuge to see the rescued baby elephants and have had the opportunity to adopt. I am thankful we had the opportunity.

Thank you for the lovely memory of the Muthaiga Country Club. The dinner, piano, and birthday party with your friends was so much fun. We truly appreciate your giving us the time there and a personal tour. It is such a beautiful place. It was fun spending time with you and I hope to see you again soon! We love As You Like It Safaris, you and Kamara!!

Warm Regards,

Pam Fisher and Cori Weiss

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.
