No. Not really. :twisted:

I quite enjoyed it as he goes off around SA looking for these animals and talks about the people he meets, who work in conserving and carrying out scientific research to learn more about these elusive animals.

Well worth a read. O/\

Kruger Self drive, Routes, Roads and Ratings (van den Bergh, Phillip, Ingrid and Heinrich).

Ordered through Amazon, should I have bothered (jury's out). Photos are good, but for me is a little :-?
Am sure that new and not so regular visitors will enjoy.
