African Safari: Wild Life, Wild Love African Safari: Wild Life, Wild Love
is a personalized novel set on a luxury tent safari in Zambia, southern Africa.
    Danger has always been part of the allure of going on African safari, and that is exactly what seems to await at every turn in this Fletcher Newbern novel that unfolds at several luxury tent resorts in remote Zambia in Southern Africa.
    'Wild life' abounds as does 'wild love,' and not just from the wild animals. From plane rides to river trips to drive safaris over endless plains of wilderness, our starring couple spot each of the "Big Five" game animals (lion, elephant, Cape buffalo, leopard, and rhinoceros) and enjoy extraordinarily private moments, but trouble ensues when a crew of bad guys poaching for profit force our couple into the fray where they learn true lessons of life and love.
