In February 1994 it made headline news: a young game ranger from the Kruger National Park was attacked by two crocodiles and lost his left arm.

For Christiaan Bakkes, recklessness and an insatiable lust for adventure led to tragedy. Writing about his experiences a unique writer’s voice was born – a South African Hemingway. He published three collections of wilderness stories, of which a choice selection is offered here, as well as two novels. At 42, Chris Bakkes has led the kind of life that most people can only dream of. After he recovered in 1995 he travelled through Africa for five months, worked for the WWF in the Kaokoveld in Namibia for three years and then joined a safari company conducting ecotours, first at the Skeleton Coast and now also in Damaraland. He and his wife both work for Wilderness Safaris Namibia, Christiaan as a guide and area manager. He also leads gorilla safaris in the forests of Uganda from time to time.
