A book that I have been waiting for, for ages has finally released. :mrgreen: 101 Kruger Tales compiled by Jeff Gordon is a book made up of 101 authentic true Kruger experiences. I received my copy on Friday and have not been able to put it down since.

The book has stories that you will identify with,that will shock you, make you laugh, make you want to cry but most of all make you remember how you fell in love with KNP.

The Book is available on Kindle and as a softcover from the books website.

Kaapsedraai,
Am sure you will enjoy it.
A hard copy will prob be nicer than the Kindle version. Some of the stories have photos at the end, and they don't come out so nicely on the Kindle.
