Thank you so much, Keagan for these wonderful book recommendations! Some of them I already know but I will certainly buy the ones I don’t know yet.

Hi Keagan, fantastic books, Born Free is one of the first books I read and I find myself thinking about it throughout my life, I still have goosebumps when thinking of that story and Joy and George Adamson, their invaluable support to wild fauna and their final sacrifice. Queen of Shaba still remains my favourite book by Joy, a story of a female leopard and her reintroduction to wild life. Also Pimpa the cheetah. There are several books by George, he lived within a pride of lions. Thank you so much! Is there any classic detailed book about southern african flora?

Keagan, great selection of books. I have read only two but will investigate the others.

I’m glad the Roberts Bird book was as useful to you as it was to me. I have read some of the older books you’ve recommended but will be sure to read you
other suggestions. Grampy. Hawaii. 20 years on.

Keagan your book collection has so much informative and good reading for all to read. I especially loved Born Free and I also saw the film. The story was also compelling and the pictures of the lioness were so beautiful.

Thanks Keagan for sharing your 10 most favorite safari books. I’ve read most of these, but look forward to adding Sentient to my library of African Safari books, to learn more about the sixth sense. I just purchased the Robert’s Bird Guide app for South Africa and look forward to using it later this year.

Lovely books, I really liked Sentient. I also love “Shaping Kruger”. Although it is much more “scientific” than the ones above, it is a really incredible book, and you’ll learn a lot of things about the fauna of Kruger and its surroundings and their relationships to one another.
