Read full description of the books:
Human emotion and animal instinct meet poignantly when two six-week-old leopard cubs become the charge of 22-year-old game ranger Graham Cooke at Londolozi. Staying with the cubs in an unfenced bush camp surrounded by lions, hyenas and other leopards, he must first gain their trust before he begins to guide them towards release in the wild. It takes weeks of patience and gentleness for Graham to be accepted into the cubs' small family unit and to find ways of communicating with the young leopards as he slowly begins to introduce them to their new environment. Graham finds himself drawn more to the wary little female than her easy-going brother, but over time both cubs come to recognise him as their protector. They form a bond of friendship through which he can gain unparalleled insights into their development and behaviour. When, a year later, the cubs are relocated to the Zambian wilderness, Graham faces the hardest task of all: to set free the young animals he has become so devoted to so that they can return to a wild existence where he is unable to control their fate.

Read information about the authorWhen Fransje first visited the African wilderness through her work as cabin attendant with KLM in March 1991, an old childhood dream of experiencing the thrill of observing wild animals came true.
Inspired by the writings of Brian Jackman, Fransje tried her hand at writing and fast forwarding a decade later, moved to the tip of the African continent to embark on a new career.
Following many freelance travel and wildlife stories for magazines and newspapers, Fransje wrote her first book Life With Darwin and Other Baboons as a way to highlight the work of Karin Saks and the maligned primates of South Africa.
A second book, The Crowing of the Roosters, followed a year later. The story was a true account of a Xhosa woman, Nomfusi Yekani, through whose eyes the reader journeys through time, rural village life and apartheid. The book was nominated for the 2005 Alan Paton/ Sunday Times Literary award.
Her latest book, My Life with Leopards - Graham Cooke's Story, is currently in its 3rd edition.
Fransje and Graham are hosting special My Life With Leopards Safaris in Zambia - taking small groups of guests back to the remote South Luangwa where two very special leopards were released in 1994.
