This is a book we have had in the family for many years and it has some interesting information in it. My Most recent copy was published by Struik in 1992. I wondered if anyone had heard of or seen a more recent, updated version. It is a really useful book full of useful information

It's a great book Pat!
I was also wondering if there was an updated edition. I find it extremely useful when trying to find info on animals etc. One of my favourite ref. books :)

We never go to Kruger without it, but most of the newer camps, hides and roads don't feature so a new updated edition would be great. Also find it useful for 1st time visitors as they usually have hundreds of questions, most of which are answered in this book

Spookie, I'm looking for a copy myself. The last book I bought was in one of the camp shops in around 1992. I have not seen it recently

I Have just searched Kalahari and Amazon.
Amazon seem to have a few 2nd hand copies, but nothing more recent then the 1992 version I already have

Hi all,

I received this book as a birthday present a few years ago. Very useful. It's the 1984 edition.
