5.0 out of 5 stars A great pre-safari read, 13 Feb. 2010
This review is from: Cry of the Kalahari (Paperback)
Having never been Africa or been on a safari before this book was recommended to me whilst trying to decide which country or areas to visit. It's a fascinating account of the dedicated work of the two young students leaving everything behind to study the animals of the Kalahari desert in Botswana. Their encounters with the lions were truly remarkable, and despite opting to visit Tanzania in the end, this book provided a great insight into the African wilderness before setting off.

Highly recommended, and even if you're not planning going on a safari, I suspect you will by the end!

5.0 out of 5 stars Africa,Nature?Try this one., 5 Jun. 2003
This review is from: Cry of the Kalahari (Paperback)
I have a deep interest in Africa and its natural wildlife .This book is one of the best I have read to date.It is written with warmth and beauty.The descriptions of the animals and their antics are amazing,often humorous,sometimes touching,sometimes frightening.Through this book you want to be with this brave couple in their Kalahari camp,though deep inside grateful for the safety and comfort of home.
If you enjoy Laurens Van Der Post,chances are you will love this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book NOT to miss, 13 Aug. 2014
This review is from: Cry of the Kalahari (Paperback)
What a fantastic true episode in the lives of two young people..Its one of those adventures we all would love to experience...in the depths of the Kalahari where the wild animals have had no contact with humans to the extent Brown Hyenas and LIONS came walking through the camp and sitting with Mark and Delia.....neither of the two parties showing any fear or aggression..I have immediately ordered BOTH their subsequent books on further experiences in the Kalahari and cannot wait for them to arrive..A DEFINITIVE ACCOUNT OF ANIMAL STUDIES IN THE FURTHERANCE OF CONSERVATION. TOLD IN LAYMAN'S WORDS
