Summary

A collection of 101 jaw-dropping stories, as told by the very people who experienced them – first-hand accounts of sightings, scrapes and encounters in one of Africa’s greatest National Parks. It details hair-raising experiences from the Kruger Park’s roads, camps, picnic sites and walking trails, such as: An enraged elephant flips a car onto its roof; a lioness prises open a terrified couple’s car door; a fleeing impala leaps through an open car window; a hyaena snatches a baby from a tent; a tourist takes a bath in a croc-infested dam. Bedside book, travel companion, dip-into – wherever you are, this exciting book will transport you directly into the bush.

Author Bio

Jeff Gordon is one of the myriad ordinary Kruger visitors, with no special affiliation to the park. But he happens to enjoy a good yarn, so he invited other ordinary Kruger visitors to submit stories about their experiences. The result has proved popular beyond his imaginings, and he has already started collecting stories for a second compilation. He likes his boerewors a touch underdone, his biltong thinly sliced and his Amarula on ice.

Customer Reviews

Great read if you plan on visiting the Kruger

Reviewed by on

If you plan to visit the Kruger (especially for the first time), then this book will give you some insight as to what you may expect. The biggest lesson you'll learn is that the wild in the Kruger need to be respected, and that you may come back from your visit with a terrific tale to tell. I you're squeamish, then some of the tales will send shivers down your spine, especially if you plan to use a tent in the park! Reading this book will definitively WANT to make you visit the Kruger. A great read!
