One that has not been mentioned is "Kruger Park Adventures" by C.P. De Leeuw Beyers. Here is one excerpt

" The muffled Umph....Umph... of a pride of lions, rising to a full-throated crescendo, until the powerful vibrations and resonance from the Lebombo foothills mingled to make the cold night air tremble, only to die away in a diminuendo of grunts, leaving the valley pregnant with impending tragedy"

Gmlsmit, if the list is just "some" of your books, I don't want to see the full list :shock: But you have some very good books there. The book that I have mentioned in my last post contains some true game ranger stories, which I will compare with your "Lest we forget" thread to see if I can add some value to the latter.

Hi 100% Boer and all the others. :)

The "Lest we Forget" thread is not only for my exclusive use, anyone who has some all true story about the old timers should feel free to post them.

My "Lest we Forget" stories are true - from actual interviews with those mentioned and/or their families, getting them to talk is sometimes quite difficuilt but once the ice had been broken my tape recorders works overtime.

Again all please join in.

I have a few books +/- 10. I received a really nice book yesterday for my birthday called " My Book" by Brian Joffe. It is an hardcover book containing Wildlife photos with short comments/sayings with each photo. Beautiful photos and very thought provoking.

I have 50!!! Not including magazines.

I don't have the patience to type in all the names here, as my typing skills are too slow but I do have a printed copy, which I keep in my Kruger folder, for when I visit.

I too cannot resist buying any item which mentions Kruger. I am proud to admit that I am obsessed with KNP. :dance: :dance:

Right , Mauxie , obsessed with KNP is how I would classify myself as well !
Thus my frustration at the excessive amount of day trippers ...

When I need to pacify myself I pick up "African Eden" , "Memories of a Game Ranger" or "Wild Ways" or similar to take me back to how Kruger should be ...

Fortunately not that many - G@mespotter - though at times it appears there could be that many .

I found another booklet - "Dreyers Tourist Notes" .

I have been extremely blessed to be part of a family that loves Kruger. If you combine my books with my folks', I think gmlsmit will be beaten :lol: . One of the books I have not seen on the other lists ... My First Book of Southern African Mammals - Peter Apps :wink: Hopefully (and so far succesfully) I will raise another Kruger-loving generation.
And I had the priviledge to have a sneak preview of a page or three of the long awaited book Die Goue Jare by Dr U de V Pienaar :tongue: .

:clap: :clap: Im so glad I came across this, for a minute there I thought I was being a freek of nature buying at least two books every visit and then searching high and low at Exclusive, Kalahari and all those lovely places for "Kruger related" books. I have a few from Ndloti's list probably about 15 books in total and a long list to follow some of which I got from this forum. Thanks Guys, so nice to know there are so many books out there. :wink:
