The Boy From the Wild is the ex­tra­or­di­nary story of Peter Meyer’s beloved fa­ther, James Meyer, and his love for the African wilder­ness. The book also gives a de­light­fully de­tailed ac­count of Peter’s child­hood grow­ing up in the Kark­loof Val­ley Na­ture Re­serve, a hid­den wilder­ness gem sit­u­ated in the hilly coun­try­side of KwaZulu-Na­tal. From fright­en­ing en­coun­ters with rhi­nos to com­ing face-to-face with snakes – re­sult­ing in two snake bites – Peter bril­liantly nar­rates the mem­o­ries of his child­hood. The Boy From the Wild is a grip­ping tale of re­mark­able peo­ple fear­lessly liv­ing out their am­bi­tions with hon­esty, vigour and courage. It also is a poignant story of a gran­ite-strong bond be­tween a fa­ther and son. For your own taste of the beauty of the Kark­loof area, book a stay at Kark­loof Sa­fari Vil­las.
