Backseat safari (Behind the scenes in the African bush) from Robyn Keen-Young. ISBN 1-77007-285-3, published by Struik.

I bought the book at the Exclusive bookshop at the airport in Johannesburg. I really enjoyed reading it and plan to read it again before I leave to South Africa again in May.

Robyn Keen-Young is the wife of the photographer Adrian Bailey.

By turns funny and sad, dramatic and thought- provoking Backseat Safari chronicles their adventures and misadventures photographing the wildlife of Southern Africa.

Hi Mikath

The paperback edition of Robyn's Backseat Safari is unfortunately out of print, but it's just been released as an ebook for Kindle. It is available from Amazon here (or by searching for the title on Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk):

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003XV ... B003XVZA8U

If you don't have a Kindle, you can download Kindle software for your computer which will allow you to you read the book.

Kind regards
Adrian (Robyn's husband)

What a book!

Just finished reading this one on my kindle and couldn't put down from start to end. The experiences shared are interesting and funny, it's also is written pretty well too.

I'm looking forward to reading Africa Unplugged next which is also written by Robyn Keene-Young.
