In this book, Kobie Krger brings us more stories of her life in the Kruger National Park, where her husband was a game ranger. After eleven years in the remote Mahlangeni region they are transferred, first to Crocodile Bridge and then to Pretoriuskop. Fully at peace in the wild and lonely landscapes of the north, Kobie fears she will never adapt to the relatively people-populated southern area. Foremost among her memories is the unique experience of raising Leo, an abandoned lion cub. It is a fascinating and emotional encounter with the king of the beasts that brings her and her family equal measures of joy and sorrow. Written with her usual warmth and humour, and imbued with her love of the wilderness and all its inhabitants, Kobie's new book is truly a celebration of all things wild and wonderful.

I'm less impressed then I was with Mahlangeni. It's worth reading if the original is read first. Read full review
