If you’re looking for the perfect gift for friends and family visiting overseas, or a holiday read that will make you fall in love with the South African bush, An Elephant in my Kitchen should be on your list. This book gives amazing insight into animal behavior, and I have been moved to tears several times already, reading about the community, loyalty and emotion that exists in elephant herds. The writing style is easy to read, and personal - it feels like you’re sitting around the campfire, listening to Francoise share her stories. I’m feeling so inspired now to travel our country, and so grateful to be South African. Thank you for sending me this review copy, @panmacmillansa!
