The Wilderness Family At Home with Africa's WildlifeIn the autumn of Golden sunshine glowed in the lush garden where fruit bats hung in the sausage trees hippos basked in the glittering waters of the Letaba River storks and herons perched Wilderness Family At Home with ePUB #199 along the shore Kobie felt she had found heaven on earth until she awoke that first night to find a python slithering silently across her bedroom floor It was the perfect introduction to the wonders and terrors that awaited herAs the Krügers settled in they became accustomed to living in the midst of ravishing splendor and daily surprises A honey badger they nursed back to health rampaged affectionately through the house Sneaky hyenas stole blankets and cook pots Ordinarily placid elephants grew foul tempered and violent in the summer heat And one terrible day the shadow of tragedy fell across the family when a lion attacked Kobus in the bush and nearly killed himBut nothing prepared Kobie and her husband Kobus spent seventeen years as game rangers in Kruger National Park This recounts a number of their experiences during most of those years Initially they were at the remote Mahlangeni Post for eleven years The transition to the populated southern post at Crocodile Bridge had its challenges Later they were posted at Pretorious Kop Their three daughters grew up in the park living alongside the wildlife and learning how to interact The second half of the book focuses mostly on their experiences raising an abandoned lion cub This is written in a light conversational style While it is roughly chronological the first half of the book focuses on topics with a number of experiences pertaining to that topic So the next chapter might actually go backwards in terms of chronology but it all fits together to give an overview of their experiences Because of the topical nature of the first half it lends itself to dipping although I read it straight through The book was originally published as two volumes which helps explain the different styles in the format Personally I felt she got a bit dramatic with the later sections regarding Leo but enjoyed it overall
