R95.00

Mike Nunan has combined his skills as a keen observer, both of his natural surroundings and his fellow man, and as a fireside raconteur of note to produce this wonderful collection of reflections, stories (both humorous and tragic) and reminiscences of his life in the bush, both as a child and later as a Lodge manager and safari guide.

Description

Mike Nunan, former maths teacher, bank manager, athletics administrator and Green Number Comrades runner (11 runs completed), has spent the past 20 years of his life managing game lodges throughout Southern Africa – as far afield as Tanzania and Botswana.
He grew up in the frontier bush environment of Northern Botswana, which instilled in him a deep love and respect for nature, wildlife and conservation.
He has combined his skills as a keen observer, both of his natural surroundings and his fellow man, and as a fireside raconteur of note to produce this wonderful collection of reflections, stories (both humourous and tragic) and reminiscences of his life in the bush, both as a child and later as a Lodge manager and safari guide.
He is obviously a deep thinker, and many of his stories reflect the philosophising that must have taken place at dawn, while sipping on his gallon mug of tea, on many a lodge and cottage veranda across the southern part of our continent.
As you read the book, you can picture Mike holding forth to guests from all over the world around the fire in the boma.
A worthy read, indeed!
