A Walk in the Park is a great read - and very useful for planning trips to one or more of South Africa's wonderful game parks. The author has a gift for describing the detail and the entertaining anecdotes inspire one to book the next visit and track down the characters and creatures so delightfully portrayed. The hints and suggestions are excellent and can add value and enjoyment to any trip to one of the parks covered in the book. Of course, if trips are out of the question, this is an excellent travel book that makes for fabulous vicarious visits to game reserves, offering a new appreciation of the country's rich fauna and flora.
A Walk in the Park is a delightful guide book of 12 South African parks. How can "delightful" and "guide book" belong to the same sentence? Because we all know, that 90% of the guide books are just plain boring. Not this one. Roxanne has done a wonderful job transforming what could have been a dry guide book into an adventurous, entertaining, and hilarious recount of her own experiences at those parks. The result is a memoir that transports you to the South African parks before you get there and it also gives you all the information you need to plan your own adventure.
With the horrifying pace in which wildlife and wild places are vanishing, this may be the only way many of us will get to 'visit' some of the magical places Roxanne writes about. She is such a great writer that it is easy to feel I am there with her in each of the Parks she describes. I have followed this authors blog for awhile and was thrilled to see the book. Bought it the first chance I got. Lori Robinson from SavingWild.com
From the first to the last page I was transported away from the rat race and into the "bush". Written with a skilled sense of humor that left vivid images in my mind. Not just informative - but a book to be kept and treasured - even if if you are not planning a "park" holiday.
How thrilling to receive notification that one of my favourite "escape from the real world" books was now available on Kindle! I can now carry it with me, at the ready, for those times that I just need a bit of African magic!
