Welcome to Brian Jackman's website
Insight Guides recently described Brian Jackman as "Britain's foremost writer on wildlife and safaris." After 20 years at Britain's Sunday Times he left to go freelance and has travelled widely in Africa. "If I add up all the nights I have slept under canvas," he says, "I must have spent at least two years of my life in the bush." His books on Africa include The Marsh Lions, The Big Cat Diary (with Jonathan Scott), and Roaring at the Dawn. He also edited My Serengeti Years by Myles Turner and Battle for the Elephants by Iain and Oria Douglas-Hamilton. Through his friendship with the late George Adamson, he became a trustee of the George Adamson Wildlife Preservation Trust and he is also a patron of Tusk Trust. Today he writes mostly for The Sunday Times and The Daily Telegraph. His favourite places? "Anywhere you can watch big cats," he says.
