Product information

If you are looking for a holiday read for your safari, Dave Bennun's Tick Bite Fever is a wonderful way to while away some time between game drives, on the plane, or as you drift off to sleep with the sounds of Africa outside.

Dave Bennun's family moved from Swindon to Kenya in the '70s. This memoir maps the anecdotes of his extraordinary childhood, peppered with people, animals, and stories of a wild and remote Kenyan upbringing. With lions in the playground and Sunday afternoons with elephants, this book promises to provide top-quality literary entertainment no matter where you read it.

"Laugh out loud is an understatement...a wonderful insight into life in Africa from a two-foot high point of view, witty, touching and above all affectionate." - The Press Association

"Tick Bite Fever itches with mordant wit - there's at least one turn of phrase per paragraph that gets among your ribs like a feather duster. An excellent memoir." - Uncut Magazine
