"In this collection of superbly written Kalahari cameos and anecdotes, Roxanne takes us on a journey of her experiences through the Kalahari; most of them amusing, others informative and some rather disturbing. For those who have visited the park it will bring back memories ... For those who have not yet had the opportunity to experience it, it will whet the appetite." (Wildlife researchers and authors Gus and Margie Mills)
The Kalahari is vast and ageless, a semi-desert of photogenic red dunes and star-crammed skies where African animals run wild. Visit it once and it may capture your heart forever.
That's what happened to author Roxanne Reid, whose travel tales are full of candour and gentle humour. She has visited the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, which sprawls across the border between South Africa and Botswana, more than twenty times. Now you can tag along on her adventures in this, her third book: walk with a Bushman tracker, enter the world of the meerkat, track cheetahs across the dunes, drive a 4x4 trail, camp out under the stars and taste Kalahari truffles.
A "need to know" section at the end gives basic advice on how to recreate some of these experiences for yourself.
