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.
