Publisher's Summary

When Kobie Krüger, her game-ranger husband, Kobus, 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 about loneliness and boredom. Yet the 17 years they spent there proved the most magical and, occasionally, the most hair-raising of their lives. In The Wilderness Family, Kobie recounts their enchanting adventures and extraordinary experiences in this vast reserve, a place where, bathed in golden sunlight, hippos basked in the glittering waters of the Letaba River, storks and herons perched along the shoreline, and fruit bats hung in the sausage trees. But nothing prepared the Krügers for their greatest adventure of all, the raising of an orphaned prince: a lion cub who, when they found him, was only a few days old and on the verge of death.
