The Other Animals of the Kruger National Park – A Book by Frank Watts

The launch of Frank’s first book will be held on Sat 1st October 2011 at 1300hrs at the local watering hole, known as Bushburgers here in Hazyview.

Frank Watts is one of those special people who have dedicated their lives to the preservation and enjoyment of the unique outdoors that South Africa is blessed with. Many of the years that he has been engaged in activities in this great outdoors have been in the Kruger National Park, a world icon with a reputation of being one of the best wildlife sanctuaries on the planet.

During the Many years that Frank took people on safaris through the Kruger National Park, and whilst working with the “Rainbow Nation” staff in the park, he has observed countless interesting interactions taking place between those people (the Other Animals) and the park’s animals.

‘The Other Animals of the Kruger National Park’ is a collection of stories written about these episodes of strange and funny behaviour, as observed and interpreted by Frank – the guide who witnessed the now world famous YouTube video clip entitled “The Battle at Kruger” . This clip taken by an American Tourist on safari with Frank, has won an award and is the subject of a National Geographic Wildlife TV programme, which has been screened internationally. The stories are about real people and real events.

These are the stories that guides tell around campfires in wild places; stories that bring a smile to your face or a tear to your eye, and undoubtedly add an unforgettable flavour to any safari, especially for our guests, who have been or will go on a game drive to the Kruger Park with him.
