Kobie Kruger Books

If you are enthralled with Africam then you will love these books.

In The Wilderness Family Kobie tells of becoming a game wardens wife in The Kruger National Park and all the joys and sorrows they encountered along the way.

Kobie Kruger - The Wilderness Family, and Mahlangeni. You won't want them to end.

My dad has only finished reading it this morning, he loved it too Laughing out loud Now I'll have to look for the originals too!

Did it have the chapter about Kobie making the baboon film in Shingwedzi?

This was one of the best I have ever read. I just finished reading it for a second time. You laugh, you cry, you go through every emotion I believe that Kobie experienced. Her writing makes you feel as though you were part of her life and not an outsider looking in. Wonderful book.

I would like to add that "The Wilderness Family" is 2 books in one: "Mahlangeni" and "All Things Wild and Wonderful".

But "The Wilderness Family" is a slightly shortened version. So if you want to read the whole story, rather buy "Mahlangeni" and "All Things Wild and Wonderful".
