Game for Anything is a captivating, honest account of life in the bush and the challenges Nikki faces whilst living in tough, but idyllic surroundings. Nikki is a wonderful storyteller and one can clearly picture the precarious situations she finds herself in and how she deals with each one with determination, courage, humour or just pure survival instinct! Her encounters with unpredictable animals and sometimes equally unpredictable humans add grit to the novel, while her love of the beautiful bush, her family and friends shines through. The relationships that develop with work colleagues & neighbours in such an isolated environment are intriguing and heartwarming and one can feel the loss and sadness when tragedy strikes or, when the community she has grown to love, disintegrates. Nikki makes one aware of the fragile existence of making a living in the African bush, but it is abundantly clear that there's no other place they'd rather be. Highly recommended and looking forward to the next book!

I found this book a real page turner. What an interesting life the author has had so far. I was left wanting more. Did they get the job on the private concession? Is there a sequel?
I would recommend this book to anyone who has been to southern Africa and understands the conditions there. I don't know if it would appeal to people with no knowledge of Africa though. I would like to be proved wrong mind you...

Really imaginative writing. Fresh and bringing all the authors experiences to life. Allows other reader to share them as well.

I was impressed by how accomplished Nikki is as both a raconteur and a writer. She has a very relaxed, natural writing style which manages to bring her story alive. As some one who is so very far away from their beloved Kruger Park this book was a treat to read.
