Tales from Tanzania might be one of the funniest books ever written about an African safari. It chronicles a vacation gone awry as the author dodges hippos and crocodiles, suffers intestinal distress of an epic nature and is repeatedly mocked by British people. The fun begins when an American copywriter drives across Tanzaniain a big truck with a bunch of English tourists; the fun ends when one guest accidentally poisons the group with tainted drinking water. No bodily function goes undocumented in this comical account of wildlife encounters and Maasai earlobes. From a tent perched on the edge of Ngorongoro Crater to the skies above the Serengeti, this anecdotal tale captures a safari in hilarious detail.
