Back to the bush,
This review is from: The White Lions of Timbavati (Hardcover)
Not so much a review as re reading a lovely evocative reminder of part of own childhood trips into the african bush including Kruger Park. But would very much like to know how the Mcbrides, who first noted the white lion cubs in 1975, progressed and what are they doing now? Very impressed that Chris made a point of learning Zulu and worked with his wonderful trackers, wife Charlotte, and daughter Tabitha growing up in such a rich and valuable environment. Janet Harding

Just found Operation White Lion at our local flea market!
Huge display of books and there it was standing up looking
straight at me! Kept my disbelief and enthusiasm low key til I got home.
Kind regards Janet.

Hi JV - Charlotte Mc bride is my cousin. They are still living in Africa and running a safari camp - check out McBrides Camp on google. Lucky you - I have never been able to get hold of a copy of operation White Lion.
As far as I understand the Lions ended up in protective custody, others have been found and they even have some in a wildlife park in Australia!

Just returned from my 6th visit to Chris & Charlotte's camp - great time with rather surreal candelabra lit dinner outside while two lions and two lionesses roared around us as they roamed the camp, coming with 50 meters of us diners (Charlotte had organised a great meal for my brother in law's birthday, he and Chris swapping awful jokes, and it was rather reminiscent of the very British meal in Carry on Up the Khyber). Got both his books and they are good reads.
