Mahlangeni - wonderful book, could not put it down.

If I can make one comment - I would have loved some photos of the places and people mentioned. I saw a different Mahlangeni on the internet, with a colour photo of the family crossing the Letaba in their famous boat. My version has a couple of drawings on the cover.

I was also surprised to read the names of a family that I actually know - small world :D

I had a look on Google Earth for their house on the banks of the Letaba - Might have found it :thumbs_up:

I am totally addicted to her two books and have read them a good few times, and none of the editions I have have a photo of Mahlangeni Bennie.

Mahlangeni rangers station , the bridge that Kobie Kruger writes about that was built during their tenure there is clearly visible .

Mahlangeni is one of my favourite books ever! You could actually "feel" KNP while reading it.

All the three books of Kobie Kruger ( Mahlangeni, Wilderness Family, All things wild and wonderful) are beautifully written.
A must read!

Kobie's simple language and sense of humour makes it appealing for all ages.

Wish she had more books.

I did not realise that she had written three books. I have read Mahlangeni and All things wild and wonderful and just loved them both, I must try and find the Wilderness Family.

I managed to get a copy of "All things wild and Wonderful" - its just awesome. Almost finished it in one go.

I wonder if Kobie knows about the Forum and the fan club she has here? :hmz:

I read both" Mahlangeni" and "all things wild and wonderful" when I was about 13 and loved it! I read the one coming home from kruger and finished it in the car :) I never knew there was a third book, does anyone know if it still in print?

I have the third book. It is a combination of the first two, mostly, and a bit extra. I am sure it is still in print.
