Dead Men Don’t Leave Tips: Adventures X Africa

Brandon Wilson

DEAD MEN DON’T LEAVE TIPS is an edge-of-your-seat tale about a couple’s seven-month “dream” odyssey overland from London to Cape Town. Against their better judgment, two confirmed independent travelers join a bewildering band of companions and clueless guides on a do-it-yourself safari. After their dream of crossing Africa becomes a nightmare, they set off across the continent alone – and that makes all the difference.

Join the couple as they meet mountain gorillas face to face. Melt down during a blistering Saharan breakdown. Hunt dik-dik with Pygmies. Climb Africa’s highest mountain. Feel the raw power of the Serengeti. Hop the “gun-run” through a civil war. Rush down thundering Class V Zambezi rapids and dive into South Africa’s cauldron of turmoil.

Their raw story is filled with a passion for travel, spontaneity and adventure. It’s unsanitized for your protection: from the hustle and hassle of the souk to shady dealings in blackmarket alleys, from the frustration of border extortion to the thrill of sandmatting the Sahara eight feet at a time. It takes you onto the crazed roads of Africa, as well as into the lives and hearts of its people. Richly illustrated with 38 author photos and maps.
