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.
