Kronkelpaadjies deur die Kruger Wildtuin

Unread post by Rooies »

I have read about this book in a 2013 issue of 'Weg' magazine. Its actual name is Kronkelpaadjies (en kronkelpraatjies) deur die Kruger Wildtuin. It is written by Rian Swiegers.
Unfortunately I could find no English version (or translation) The book is about the author's travels through the years, his travels by car and on foot. It is about his experiences before commercialization (sounds like 30-40 years ago)

This is the first time I have read about the book :slap: ( Usually, no book about Kruger will pass me unnoticed)

Has anyone else seen it?

He is actually busy writing a new book telling more stories of experiences on the trails he walked.

It is currently in production. Not sure when it will be available.
