A book about strange and funny behaviour of people visiting the KNP, some of which bring back memories of one's own amusing experiences in the park. :lol:

It most certainly is a must read. With Frank's 20 years experience in the wild, the stories are about actual experiences, including the one about 'The Battle at Kruger'.

Hi Salamanda

I just got my autogrsphed copy of this bookj and started reading it, I havent been able to put it down - Frank writes about actual events during his safari guiding days - they way he writes makes you picture what is actually happening.

I have met Frank in person when he was still in charge of Shimuwini, and I can guarantee you, if the book is as good as Frank's personal story telling, it will be an absolute must to have in your collection.

It is a pleasure Meandering Mouse! I am sure that Frank has many more stories to tell. I sincerely hope that another book will be in the offing?
