Hi All,

I have a copy of "Where to Watch Game in the KNP" by Nigel Denis, 2000 edition. Is there a more up-to-date edition? Are there many changes? Would the later version be worth getting bearing in mind I have an earlier version?

Thanks
Yoda

I'm not sure if there is an update, but I doubt it would be very useful. I have found most of his suggestions to be accurate.

You will want to make sure to pick up a regular map at the gate. The book by Nigel Dennis does not have many of the smaller roads or waterholes listed.

Another suggestion, if you want more information, is "Prime Origins Guide to Exploring Kruger." It provides a much more detailed overview of each area, as well as additional information of kruger animals, history, and other general information (weather, seasons, gate/camp times, etc.)

Hi Skywalker,

Thanks.
I have a map book already courtesy of BB.

Is your recommendation easy to get hold of? I'll have a look on Amazon.

Yoda,

I think I ordered my copy from their website. I had it sent to the USA and it took about 5-7 weeks before I received it.

Skywalker,

I finally had a look at the Prime Origins website today. That book is out of stock but due for reprint in November. So I will order one then.

Thanks
Yoda

Hi All,

I have been contacting Prime Origins for months trying to get a copy of this book. But they are out of stock. Keep telling me one story or another. Not very helpful.
Anyone have any ideas where else I may be able to pick up a copy?

Thanks
Yoda

I have checked on Amazon and ABE this morning and neither list it.

Does anyone know of any specialist 2nd hand wildlife book dealers?
