Born in 1876, Renault Acutt spent his early years in Verulam on the North Coast, went to school at the Berea Academy in Durban and, in 1891, at the age of fifteen, started work as an office boy for a firm in Commissioner Street, Johannesburg, then barely in its second year. He spent the better part of the next thirty years on the Rand, witnessing its growth and contributing to it as a contractor to the mines and later as a cinema entrepreneur (he was the first general manager of Africa's Amalgamated Theatres). It is his adventures in the 1890's and in the early part of this century that give the book its absorbing interest. There… Read more

Pilanesberg is one of the oldest and largest volcanic complexes on earth. You may find ... the largest, or the fastest, or one of the most endangered land mammals on earth; or the largest flightless bird, just one of over 300 species of birds in the Park; or some of the thousands of plant, insect or reptiles species. Of course, one can never hope to see it all, but Pilanesberg's magic will be found in its unique geology, its ancient and extraordinary history, in the diversity of life and in looking for the big game.
