What could possibly go wrong in paradise?

Tired of mortgage and car payments, thirty-something Andrew and Gwynn, and their Siamese cat, sold everything they owned and escaped their humdrum nine-to-five existence for life in paradise — a tiny island accessible only by boat or air in one of the remotest spots on Earth: the Okavango Delta in Botswana.

Woefully inexperienced, they took control of a luxury game lodge where the rich and famous went to sip G&Ts with lions and elephants.

Trouble soon followed.

Their lives were threatened daily by snakes, elephants, baboons, and a hyena with a plastic fetish. Not to mention the endless—and often insurmountable—challenge of keeping their five star guests fed in a world where the closest supermarket was an air flight away.

Amongst others, their guests included a famous Hollywood director, some French aristocrats, a Mafia lawyer, world famous singers, and the England cricket captain.

Light-hearted and humorous, this action-packed story—peppered with some suspense— will enthrall you with its unique look at life in wild Africa.

Anyone familiar with Andrew’s 4×4 shows, documentaries and writing will find much to enjoy in this adventurer’s tome; a heartfelt record of a couple who were prepared to give up the relative comforts of stability and security for a life of adventure and exploration in southern Africa.
