it was amazing

Mario Cesare writes most engagingly of his encounters with lions, elephants and buffalo in a private game reserve adjacent to the Greater Kruger National Park in South Africa. His naturalist's eye for detail, combined with the struggles of managing a fragile ecosystem through the problems of drought, poaching and difficuly neighbours makes this book an unforgettable read. As a young man I spent a number years in the areas he writes so vividly about.
