Or the time he and a young warthog inadvertently find themselves as meal options - bacon or slow moving and foolish trainee - for a hungry lion. Or the afternoon that he heard monkeys telling him that a leopard was walking around the camp, and then realized the leopard was in his tent, with him in it. Romantic notions aside, being a safari guide isn't always particularly enjoyable or glamorous. Quite often it is beset with challenges, like having to spend a night in a thorn tree with marauding hyenas below. But safari guide Peter Allison lives for these kinds of moments, and when they dry up in one place, he moves on to the next, never looking behind. These settings are safari camps in South Africa, Botswana, Mozambique and Namibia, places Peter Allison loves, despite how much it feels like they might just be trying to kill him Allison also tells stories of the tourists that push him towards early retirement. Normally respectful of all his fellow creatures, no matter how many feet they have, Peter fantasizes about leaving one in particular behind on the Skeleton Coast, a place that receives less than half an inch of rain a year, yet is still patrolled by lions and hyenas.
