Synopsis

Angus and Hugh MacNaughton are brothers. They dislike each other ...A lot. It all started when Hugh bit Angus at a family picnic in the summer of 1989. In a last-ditch attempt to forge a brotherly bond between the two, Mr and Mrs MacNaughton secure them jobs at an exclusive five-star game lodge. They manage to convince (bribe in the case of Angus) the siblings to work at Sasekile Private Game Lodge for a year. A year in the wild: A riotous novel tells the tales of Angus and Hugh in the form of their weekly emails to their sister Julia back home. Their experiences include encounters with guests, animals, female staff and often a mix of these. Combine: an eclectic mix of rich, over-demanding and adulterous guests, a dash of crazy bush lodge staff including two jealous brothers (one a bitterly sarcastic game ranger and the other an over-eager lodge manager) and throw in the beauty of the African bushveld. Shake well. Conflict and disaster are inevitable.
