A great new book coming in December 2015. These guys are renowned for high quality books containing exceptional photographs. And they have a special for Wild Card members.

I received my copy today. I have a substantial collection of Kruger books and this one has immediately become my new favourite. A definite must for Kruger addicts.

I've received mine too. It is absolutely brilliant!!! The pictures are outstanding and the detail per road is exhaustive. A very definite "must have"!!!!
The simple rule to follow with all animals is one of respect.

Tired of wishing "you were there"? Try something different

I took a flick through this book when visiting last month and it does indeed look quite nice and seems to have some good info in there. As I probably won't ever self drive in the park I didn't get a copy but wouldn't hesitate too if circumstances were different and I know most do self drive. :thumbs_up:

I pre-ordered my copy on Amazon last night.
No indication of how long I will have to wait for my copy - hopefully I will get it soon.
