#ad - In 2011, joyce & daryle were approaching 40 and had been married for almost ten years. This book is the chronicle of the first six months, spent in Central America and Africa, as they learned to slow down, look around and embrace wherever the heck they were.

From the day they met, they’d been talking about “travelling more”, but in ten years they hadn’t advanced very far toward that dream and it had become more of a nagging dissatisfaction than an inspiring goal.

The Wilderness Family: At Home with Africa's Wildlife

#ad
#ad
Transworld Digital #ad - Reared on a cocktail of love and bottles of fat-enriched milk, Leo soon became an affectionate, rambunctious and adored member of the fmaily. It is a memoir of a magical place and time that can never be recaptured. They soon became accustomed to living with the unexpected: the sneaky hyenas who stole blankets and cooking pots, the sinister-looking pythons that slithered into the house, and the usually placid elephants who grew foul-tempered in the violent heat of the summer.

It is the rearing of this young king, and the hilarious endeavours to teach him to become a 'real' lion who could survive with his own kind in the wild, that lie at the heart of this endearing memoir. Yet, for kobie and her family, the seventeen years spent in this spectacularly beautiful park proved to be the most magical - and occasionally the most hair-raising - of their lives.

Kobie recounts their enchanting adventures and extraordinary experiences in this vast reserve - a place where, hippos basked in the glittering waters of the Letaba River, bathed in golden sunlight, storks and herons perched along the shoreline, and fruit bats hung in the sausage trees. But as the krugers settled in, they discovered that not all was peace and harmony.

The Wilderness Family: At Home with Africa's Wildlife #ad - And one terrible day, a lion attacked Kobus in the bush and nearly killed him. Yet nothing prepared the krugers for their greatest adventure of all, a lion cub who, when they found him, the raising of an orphaned prince, was only a few days old and on the verge of death. When kobie krüger, her game-ranger husband and their three young daughters moved to one of the most isolated corners of the world - a remote ranger station in the Mahlangeni region of South Africa's vast Kruger National Park - she might have worried that she would become engulfed with loneliness and boredom.
