Just bought this book. Will give a review here as soon as I have read it.

I am a sucker for any book on KNP, and SO had a ppl, so I am sure we are going to love this book.

Hi Lilacroller

Love your avvie :dance:

As far as I can see it is only available for Kindle :? I learnt about the book off the SANParks Facebook page. Scroll down a bit here. Perhaps ask there if it is available in hard cover too.

So far I am enjoying the book. I think the male gender might find the beginning more appealing as it is more 'male' orientated. But I am now at where he worked in the Natal parks and am loving reading about the way of life and game capture there.

RT, just a word of caution for you: you best only read it when your SO is around, there are some very big words in the book. You are going to them explained to you :twisted:

I have just finished reading this book.

It was a very good read and I was hooked all the way through. Some of the repeated references to aircraft types and flying 'lingo' may put some less technically minded readers off, but I loved this addition to the wildlife stories (especially being a bit of an aircraft nerd as well as a Kruger nerd) :redface:

Another must read for the Kruger books available :thumbs_up:

I am busy reading this.

Is interesting, but i.m.o. not very well written.
It comes across more as the author having a chat with someone. It seems a bit all over the place to me.
Could have done with some "polishing"

I have enjoyed the insight though.
