Book Description

Global Safari is a memoir-travelogue, offering an account of the author’s intercontinental travel experiences from his local village to the more global “village”, from Africa to Europe, the Americas, and Asia.

This book is a story about courage, international friendship, hope, survival, procrastinated return and homecoming to the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The book shows the process of achieving international competency and cosmocitizenship, or global citizenship, through a “world-ready” education, working, networking, and immersion into world cultures and languages. Its distinguishing features include its willingness to tell real-life stories, share lived travel-based experiences, and draw lessons for personal, professional, and community benefit. Its effective use of wonderful photographs will also provoke in the reader a desire to discover some of the cultural heritage sites and wonders of the world. In a nutshell, Global Safari is the account of the quest and conquest of a new self through transits, transitions, and translations.
