Books Written by Kruger Visitors 9

There is something about the Kruger which one can only understand once one has been. The place grips you, you want to return and discover more about the hidden treasures one finds when one explores the park. The "magic" of the Kruger has inspired some of the visitors to the park to write their own books about the park and give their own personal perspective about what they experienced when visiting the park, or how the place "gripped their souls". These are some of the books written by these visitors, some dating back to the early years when only a few had discovered the Kruger.
