    Statistics on animals and their strange relatives.
    Some facts about sharks and perhaps fish would also be fun to read.

    With everything that’s been going on in this country this year, I think this’d be the perfect ‘pick-me-up’! We need to keep finding reasons to love SA and this book is one of them.

    Im particular interested in Safari’s and food to try out in different regions of our beautiful country. Oh and a book filled with awesome pictures. If couvering a certain region perhaps average weather temps in the region as some places even thou its winter it still remains pretty out – and that could help with planning when its windy and rainy in the cape to head out somewhere warmer.
