Get your work-life balance in place and win a copy of Legendary Safari Guides by Susie Cazenove

Legendary Safari GuidesWork-life balance is an ongoing challenge. In this ever more pressured age, the tensions arise as we inhabit our technology infused days but yearn to view the starry night sky from the wilds of nature.

The challenges of managing time and space, work and leisure, are explored by Wayne Windell in the February issue of The Catalyst.

Small business entrepreneurs are particularly challenged to accommodate both their own and their staff’s needs in the arena of work-life balance.

If you find that you spend most of your time working, and tend to feel overwhelmed by duties and responsibilities, it is recommended that you reserve time for your family, friends and yourself when you plan your day or week. Dedicating daily time to fun and relaxation will lower the production of additional stress hormones, which give rise to poor mental and physical wellbeing.

The Catalyst is giving away three copies of Legendary Safari Guides by Susie Cazenove, because even if you can’t go on safari this week or next, you can probably claim an hour or two for reading about it.

Armchair travellers will delight in this book, which Travel Africa editor, Craig Rix, describes as “wonderful”.

To stand a chance of winning one of three copies, all you have to do is subscribe to The Catalyst and share their post on your social media.

The deadline for entries is 29 February, 2016.

Find Out What Makes for the Ultimate Wildlife Experience with Legendary Safari Guides by Susie Cazenove

Legendary Safari GuidesNew from Bookstorm – Legendary Safari Guides by Susie Cazenove:

What makes for the ultimate safari experience? Your guide is the difference between an indifferent experience and a life changing experience.

Legendary Safari Guides is a new edition of Licensed to Guide published in 2004. 24 safari guides are profiled by experienced safari travel promoter, Susie Cazenove. She tells us their stories of adventure and dreams – of following their passion into the wild and of making their guests see Africa in a new light.

Read of the antics of the guides in the early days of Londolozi, of guests having to cling to trees in the face of charging rhinos, of safaris with Mary Leaky and legends of the Masai warriors. The tales tell of a wilderness under increasing threat and these guides’ determination to share the privilege of a truly wild experience with their guests. The stories take the reader from South Africa to Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Tanzania, Kenya and Namibia in search of legendary safari guides.

About the author

Susie Cazenove was born and brought up in South Africa before moving to the UK with her English husband. She started work in the travel business in 1988, specialising in African holidays. With her fierce passion for Africa as her inspiration, Susie quickly realised that the success of a safari holiday is largely dependent on the quality of the guides. She has been privileged to travel with some of the best safari guides Africa has ever produced. She first published some of these stories in Licensed to Guide in 2004.
