A mini safari, an uneatable cucumber, a tear gassing... ... plus an unvitation and the sheer joy of travelling.

All the more delicious for being a surprise invitation to Susie's favourite country in the world: her beloved Kenya.

International book tours are an unheard-of dream for most authors. But after the ecstatic reception of her safari memoir Safari Ants, Baggy Pants & Elephants, Susie is over the moon to find herself returning to her beloved Kenya to launch the African edition in Africa's largest chain of bookshops, Text Book Centre, Nairobi.

Although her surprise trip is a huge success, this is Susie Kelly, and her magical week in Kenya isn't without mishap, even if she does remember her bras this time.

'It does something to you, this infinite space, so tranquil on the surface, yet so teeming with life. You feel at once insignificant and amazing, just for being here. I wanted to hold out my arms and gather it all in, hold it pressed to my heart, never let it go. I wanted to lay it softly between sheets of tissue and put it in a drawer to be brought out and stroked every day. I wanted to bottle it in a crystal jar and place it on a sunny windowsill to be forever in my sight. This magnificent, beautiful country, birthplace of mankind, owner of my heart... '

Praise for Susie Kelly's Safari Ants, Baggy Pants & Elephants

'I've just been on a wonderful safari trip to Kenya! At least that's how it felt.' Mrs Bloggs Books

'One of the best travel books I have read to date. I thoroughly enjoyed reading every drop of it.' - Vine Voice Reviewer

'There are a handful of authors who achieve that elusive trick of making you laugh out loud. For me it's James Herriot, Bill Bryson and Susie Kelly.' - French Entrée Magazine

'Susie is a great ambassador for Kenya. The best safari experience you are likely to get, without going on safari!' French Village Diaries

'No bras and makeup! I adore reading Susie's books, so full of humour and everyday hiccups!' Goodreads
