At the end of the article on the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park in the April 2012 edition of Getaway they mention that Gus Mills will be releasing a guide to the KTP mid-2012. Can anyone provide more detail? Who will the publisher be? Is there a better indication of the publication date? Can't wait for it to be available!

As far as I know, there's been an unexpected delay because the publisher it was with closed down that division so Gus had to find another publisher. He has now done so, but it's a slow process so we're going to have to be patient.

Thanks for the update!! Great to see that the book is still going ahead. I have Dr Mills' 1989 "Guide to the Kalahari Gemsbok National Park". That is a great book, so I can't wait for the new release. Does anyone know who the publisher will be of the new book?

I cannot find any indication on the Internet whether this publication is still going ahead Elmar, but I found used copies for sale on "Amazon.com" from overseas sellers. Also have a look at ISBNS.GS. :thumbs_up:

Thanks for your response, Hilda. I think the book you are picking up online is the old Guide to the Kalahari Gemsbok. There was talk that Dr Mills would publish a new book on the Kgalagadi, but it has been so quiet. I hope it still goes ahead. He has a wealth of knowledge on the park.

OK, has anyone ordered successfully from this outfit? I went in there and registered and try to order and it reckons I need a password which it never asked me to specify in the first place. I've been around a few times requesting password resets and subscription codes and all I got is an email to say that there is no match for my email address for any magazine subscription.

Cheers -Ed

Since it's published by Africa Geographic, maybe you have to be an AG subscriber to get the discount?

I have ordered successfully. I am not an AG subscriber and I got the pre-release price. You need to set up a registration at magsathome.

Unfortunately its not there!! :cry:
I ordered it via the link above in Nov and have not received it. Apparently the publishers have gone insolvent.
Paid via my credit card and have been told that everything is 'frozen' handed over to lawyers.
I have no book and no refund but still keen to try get my hands on a copy.

Anyone with any suggestions as to if and where I can get a copy from another source.
Thanks

This is a bad situation. My apologies to everyone for putting you onto this link. I also did not receive my order. However, I was lucky enough to get a copy at Exclusive Books at OR Tambo airport two weeks ago.

Hi Anne-Marie
Yip, such a pity!! Far away or close by they have been really unhelpful :evil:
No worries Elmar, you were not to know this.
If you could post the ISBN number that would be great, easy to quote when phoning around for availability :thumbs_up:
