Terrance Talks Travel: A Pocket Guide to African Safaris by Terrance Zepke makes the process of planning and booking an appropriate safari easy. Starting with the necessary data on Africa to make one consider a visit, it offers a choice of safaris and tips for selecting the appropriate one, such as recommended destinations to suit one's taste and the most appropriate time of the year to visit each location. Practical advice about what to carry, getting travel insurance, vaccinations, a packing checklist, and important safety advice make this book a must-have for all those planning such a venture. Further sources of references and links to important websites make this book an all in one guide to African safaris.

Terrance Talks Travel: A Pocket Guide to African Safaris certainly makes enjoying a safari rather easy. As there are many types of safaris, tourists can pick and choose one to remember by following Zepke’s advice. With options of driving, self-driving, flying in, walking, canoeing, boating, hot-air ballooning, or by camel or horseback, the opportunities for adventure are endless. By providing the five rules of safari etiquette, and with tips on less expensive places, provision of travel insurance, and packing, this pocket guide has grown in stature. And with the highlights of the best safari destinations, ten locations from East Africa and Southern Africa, as well as including information regarding the islands, this has become a mini encyclopedia. I greatly enjoyed the last item of the book; an array of resources to get psyched for the trip!
