About Life Safari
From the author of the #1 Best Sellers, The Why Cafe and The Big Five for Life, comes this much anticipated next work. An inspiring and emotionally powerful story set amidst the mystery, beauty, and allure of Africa.
Jack is a young man struggling to find happiness in his life. Although he doesn't know why, the one image that seems to capture his soul is that of Africa. With solitary focus, he saves for two years and then embarks on a journey to find the source of the calling he has felt.
Halfway around the world, a very old, very wise African woman named Ma Ma Gombe is on a journey of her own. She is seeking a fabled destination she was told of as a child-"a place where you can see the earth be born, and then watch the world go to sleep, a place so beautiful that words cannot describe it." It is a destination known to her only as "the birthplace of all."
As if their paths were destined to intertwine, these two unlikely travelers meet shortly after Jack's arrival in Africa and join together on a journey that changes both of their lives forever.
Walk with them as they cross the African continent on foot. Marvel with them at the animals they encounter, the people they meet, and the adventures they experience. Like Jack, find through the teachings of Ma Ma Gombe that piece of your soul yearning to be set free.
In Life Safari, John P. Strelecky has created a story that inspires and taps the spirit for adventure in readers everywhere. A tale that will touch your emotions, open your eyes to the amazing continent of Africa, and open your heart to the amazing potential within all of us.

“Life Safari is a great read - a meeting of the heart and soul.”
“This is a story to love. Open the cover, take that first step on your Life Safari with Jack and Ma Ma Gombe. You'll find within 'the greatest birthplace of all'…to weave your dreams. '…because there is nothing more tragic than a life that does not meet the expectations of the person who is living it.' In that moment, I understood the 'why' of my self.”

“Life Safari is more than a story; it is a journey for the reader, as well. I found myself on my own 'life safari' as I read of Jack's travels in Africa. I listened attentively to Ma Ma Gombe's wise words to hear how they applied to my own life. Life Safari transported me to another place, and when the destination was reached I cried for the beauty of it all.”
Tricia Crisafulli, founder of Faith Hope and Fiction www.faithhopeandfiction.com
“A fascinating story set in mysterious Africa that is a must read for anyone who feels that he is living a life other than the one he wants and that was meant for him.”
“Captivating, mysterious, and exciting are the markers that make a book a great read. Life Safari is all that and much, much more. A touching story of self-discovery set in a land ancient, majestic and wondrous. A heartwarming story of relationships, of a life on its' eve, and one at peace. Just like The Why Café, I couldn't put it down!”

This is one of those books. A tantalizing mix that makes this an absolute must read.”
