Hi Bush hugger

You can buy the book at kalahari or buy an eBook here

Other than that, I have no idea where to buy the book. We bought it in one of the kruger shops years ago.

These books make you so lis for the bush


I just read that a mite ordered all 3 books. The Wilderness Family is a combination of 1. All Things Wild and Wonderful and 2 Mahlangeni and was not published in RSA. It was composed for the overseas market. If you get all 3 you may be a bit disappointed with the repetitions of stories from the other 2 books.

If any mites are in Hoedspruit on 10 May 2013 you are welcome to join me as I am having lunch with the Krugers. Kobie will autograph the books you bring :clap:

Just received all 3 books from Kalahari :) I didn't realize that Wilderness Family was a combination of the first 2 :o No matter, I'm immensely looking forward to reading them :dance: :dance:

Porridge, I'd bought and read the 2 and they are brilliant - Read 'Mahlangeni' first as 'All things wild and wonderful' is following on.

But there are others as well.. Boskonsert / Bush concert and Buro van Babel (not sure of names) I stand to be corrected here and these books I am looking for, again. :hmz:

Enjoy the reading...

Thanks, Kaapsedraai :) I started Mahlangeni on Friday, finished it on Saturday, then started and finished All things wild and wonderful on Saturday too!! I couldn't put them down, and I laughed till I cried, and in places just cried. What a brilliant read!! My hat's off to Kobie for a job superbly well done!! :dance: :dance:

Meerkitty, Wilderness Family is Mahlangeni and All Things in one book in case you didn't realize it.

I thoroughly enjoyed All Things Wild and Wonderful too but boy did I have a lump in my throat all through that book!!


Such enjoyable books. All Things Wild and Wonderful had me reaching for the tissues. Very special.

I am looking for a nice holiday read for our Dec/Jan trip. Do I understand correctly that the Wilderness Family is a combination of the two above.

Sorry if the answer to this has already been answered, but have not completed reading the topic yet. :redface:

Tessa G, these are most enjoyable books and yes, Wildernis family seems to be a combination.

There are quite a number of great reads I have enjoyed such as :
New release : 101 Kruger Tales
Old Game ranger books:
- "Memoirs of a Game Ranger" by Harry Wolhuter
- Bruce Bryden - A Game Ranger Remembers
- GAME RANGER! by Hannes Klopper on the life of Harry Kirkman
- Wild Company by Gus Adendorff

I have enjoyed these reads, but most of them are very old and you will not find them at the bookstores in the malls.
...but there is one place not far from where you live....I will pm you. :dance: :thumbs_up:

Today was my lucky day! Well, almost! Only yesterday I wrote on a topic that I could never lay my hands on any of Kobie Krüger's books. While I was looking for Pipits Southern Africa this morning, (which I couldn't find nor order, because it is out of print, which is sad because it was meant as a prize for the Duckling Challenges), I came across Mahlangeni: Stories of a game ranger's family. :dance: :dance:

I'll first have to finish the book I'm busy reading when I wake up in the middle of the night before I can start on this one! I can't wait! :D
