Two Exciting New Books about to be Released!


A Guide to preparing your catch



This book bridges the gap between catching your fish and bringing it to the table. It tackles the slippery problem of how to care for your catch from the moment you haul it in, how to keep it fresh, how to scale, clean and cut it up, and then how to cook it.

The 30-plus species are arranged in three rough categories: near-shore species, offshore species, and species caught from the shore. For each fish there’s detailed information on how to handle it – with step-by-step photographs for key species – as well as a selection of recipes developed, collected, tried and tested by the author. Anecdotes, snapshots and memorabilia add a personal touch to the book.

Written by seasoned fisherman and well-known author Hennie Crous, Catch it, Cook it in Southern Africa will be snapped up by anyone with an interest in the captivating world of fish and fishing. 

Hennie Crous got hooked on fishing at an early age, later earning provincial and national deep-sea angling colours. Qualified in oceanography and fishing-gear technology, Hennie has spent a lifetime on, in or by the sea. He is also the author of Saltwater Fishing in South Africa and Top Angling Fishes of Southern Africa.

The dynamics of managing wildlife in Africa’s premier game park…



The Kruger National Park is one of the world’s leading stewards of biological diversity. Its management requires ongoing monitoring and re-evaluation to ensure that species survive.

Shaping Kruger provides fascinating insight into the lives, habits and behaviour of the larger animals that significantly affect the workings of the park. It expertly synthesizes decades of ground-breaking research into the animals and their environment, examining along the way individual species; predator-prey relationships; mammal distribution, and browsing and grazing interactions.

This detailed look at how Park management has had to interpret, monitor and adapt the processes that allow species to survive – even thrive – in an ever-changing environment makes for an intriguing and enlightening read.

Mitch Reardon worked as a ranger in South Africa and Namibia before becoming a wildlife photographer and writer. He is the author and photographer of five books, including the best-selling Etosha: Life and Death on an African Plain and has also written dozens of articles for Australian Geographic.
