Summary

Mma Ramotswe and Mma Makutsi are called to a safari lodge in Botswana’s Okavango Delta to carry out a delicate mission on behalf of a former guest.
The Okavango makes Precious appreciate once again the beauty of her homeland: it is a paradise of teeming wildlife, majestic grasslands and sparkling water. However, it is also home to rival safari operators, fearsome crocodiles and disgruntled hippopotamuses.
What’s more, Mma Makutsi still does not have a date for her wedding to Phuti Radiphuti and is feeling rather tetchy herself. But Precious knows that with a little patience, just as the wide river will gently make its way round any obstacle, so will everything work out for the best in the end . . .

Wonderful series

Adjoa Andoh does an excellent job of bringing these memorable characters to life. If you haven't read any of the Number One Ladies Detective Agency books, you're in for a treat.

This book is an excellent episode in an excellent series. The author brings Botswana to life in his unique way.

Wonderful characters & narration

I bought this wondering whether narration could do justice to the lovely gentle stories and wonderful characters that this author creates. In fact I found the audible book even better than reading for myself! It added to my own images and it was a terrific experience.
