Description

"Take Me On Safari: A Family Affair" is a compelling and one of a kind chronicle of a husband, wife, their teenage son, young daughter, and "grand mom" on safari in rural South Africa. This is the unforgettable memoir of the Mauro family, swept from their daily routines in suburbia U.S.A. and thrust into the center of adventure, drama and suspense in a remote corner of the Dark Continent.

It lays bare a multitude of uncensored thoughts and emotions ranging from fatigue, boredom, disappointment, fear and sadness to understanding, euphoria, pride, awe, excitement and surprise - all of which we
