A thoroughly readable version of Born Free, set in Botswana (and just as weepy about the animals). This is the book that got the Owens family thrown out of Botswana, in part because of their opposition to fencing the land. While their approach to conservation is controversial, there's no doubt that the Owens are dedicated to the wildlife of southern Africa -- and are very good writers.
Authors: Mark Owens & Delia Owens
NHA Staff Recommendation:
"An excellent read for anyone interested in both travel and in wildlife. Mark and Delia Owens share their experience of living with and learning from the mighty Kalahari Desert and the unique creatures that inhabit it. Definitely pack this for your next Botswana safari!"
