ABOUT LET'S GO ON SAFARI
What happens when Kate, an 8-year-old girl from Austin, Texas, meets Michelle, a professional wildlife guide, while on safari in South Africa? The two new friends turn their adventures into a photodocumentary book encouraging kids everywhere to advocate for wild animals!
ABOUT KATE WILLIAMS & MICHELLE CAMPBELL
Kate Gilman Williams wrote Let’s Go On Safari! when she was 8 years old, following a trip to South Africa with her family. On a safari adventure, she became friends with their guide, Michelle Campbell, who taught her about the many threats facing wildlife. Kate came home determined to do something to protect wild animals whose survival was being endangered by humans – and she knew her young generation could be inspired to help.
Michelle Campbell was born in South Africa and schooled in the UK. Working first as an economist, it was her love for nature that drew her back home to South Africa, where she worked as a safari guide for 6 years. She then spent a year volunteering for wildlife projects (living in her Land Rover!), documenting and sharing her conservation adventures on her website, Wild Wonderful World. Today she is working on conservation projects of her own, advocating for wildlife and encouraging children, through education and exposure, to get involved in saving wildlife.
