I loved reading this book so much. It was the perfect read for the aeroplane heading to South Africa and before our trip to Marataba Safari Lodge. I learnt so many interesting facts about elephants (did you know elephants communicate with their feet up to 10kms) and wildlife in general (waterbuck have a heart shaped nose) that I think it should be compulsory reading for travellers. And there is a sequel too – Elephants in my Kitchen out now!
