About the book:
In All Things Wild and Wonderful, Kobie Kruger brings us further stories of her life in the Kruger National Park, where her husband was a game ranger. After eleven years in the remote Mahlangeni region they are transferred, first to Crocodile Bridge and then to Pretorius Kop. Fully at peace in the wild and lonely landscapes of the north, Kobie fears she will never adapt to the relatively people-populated southern area. It takes time, but eventually she is able to acknowledge that the move has shown her 'other Edens' and has given her a store of new and precious memories. Foremost among her memories is the unique experience of raising Leo, an abandoned lion cub. It is a fascinating and emotional encounter with the king of the beasts, which brings her and her family equal measures of joy and sorrow. Written with her usual warmth and humour, and imbued with her love of the wilderness and all its inhabitants, this new book is truly a celebration of all things wild and wonderful.
