Book presented by: Voislav Vasić.
Parts of book read by: Vineta Marinović.
Virtual trip to Kruger Park: Bojan Radić.

Has Kobie Kruger, moving to the National Park Kruger with her ranger husband and three small daughters, ever thought about the dangers that stalked them in one of the most remote parts of the world?

What is expecting the ranger’s wife in a remote ranger station in Republic of South Africa? Maybe a lonely, boring, monotonous life?

Is it possible to prepare a friendly mischievous lion cub, raised in the house, for return to the wilderness?

You will find answers to these and many other questions in the book THE WILDERNESS FAMILY written by Kobie Kruger, daughter of movie director Jamie Uys, who made such cult films as “Animals are beautiful people” and “Gods must be crazy”.

In a simple but humorous way Kobie Kruger tells her story of adventures and unusual experiences during the seventeen years that she has spent with her family surrounded by luxuriant nature of Kruger Park. The beautiful rich nature presented them with many pleasures, but also with drama when they faced forest fires, floods and draught.
This interesting book was translated from English by Bojan Radić, translator and court translator, who will try to show us the ambient of Kruger Park through pictures of landscapes, plants and animals, and to lead us to places described in the book in such a picturesque way.

All interested visitors will be able to buy the book for the promotion price.
