Wild and Beautiful Zimbabwe

Imire. The Life and Times of Norman Travers

A lifetime of remarkable adventures in Zimbabwe.
A three legged leopard, a hippo and a lion in the garden. A crocodile in the swimming pool.
Norman was a visionary conservationist who also hunted, fished and farmed. He lived a life full of adventure and built Imire into a significant wildlife park. Norman and Gilly’s family life included lions, elephants, leopards, hippo and ‘…a stream of naughty, smelly little animals…’  
Norman is a man of those times; often a glass of whisky, always a pipe and a twinkle in his eye as he remembers these wonderful stories.
You will love this book because it is a warm hearted tribute to a life lived in Africa.

Kindle, paperback or hardback are available from Amazon.

Rundi: Walking with Elephants

Their mothers have been killed.
They have been in a noisy truck for hours.
They are not even weaned and they are very scared.
Slowly, gently and patiently Cathy and Simon coax the baby elephants to risk a taste of milky porridge. The male is more confident, the little female is much more wary. They have wounds which must be treated if they are to survive.
Will these little orphaned elephants, now known as Rundi and Muku, ever learn to trust humans? Will they survive in this new place and without their herd?
You will love this book because of the moving story and charming photographs of these intelligent, characterful and sensitive creatures.
