About the Author:

Nick Greaves was born and educated in England, where he studied geology and environmental sciences before leaving to work in southern Africa. His work as a geologist took him to many of the remote and unspoiled regions of South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, and Namibia. There he developed a lasting fascination for the wildlife and its varied, often fragile habitat. He now lives in Zimbabwe.
