With only their wit and a dream, the Bosman family set out from a sophisticated city life in South Africa to build a photographic safari lodge in Rhodesia. They were 90 miles from the nearest paved road, making bricks with sand and cement, cutting timber to build accommodations, and growing everything they were to eat. They encountered many challenges as they created their luxury safari lodge - from curious elephants to hungry buffalo and everything in between. Along the way they encountered a cast of characters, had hilarious adventures, and made friends and memories to last a lifetime.

About the Author:

Elaine Bosman was born in Natal, South Africa. Her parents spoke both English and Afrikaans at home, and from a very young age she had a Zulu nanny. This multi-lingual upbringing fostered her life long love of languages. In her twenties, Elaine’s career took her from South Africa to London, where she met artist and designer Paul Bosman. They married in Montreal, Canada and traveled throughout North America. On their return to South Africa, Elaine worked for the British Information Office as a translator and press officer. The family traveled extensively throughout South Africa, Swaziland and Mozambique in an effort to find the perfect spot to make their safari lodge dream a reality. This international and multicultural background provided the many skills that would be so useful in the amazing adventures that were to come!
