About this book

For many people, visiting South African game reserves is all about ticking off the 'Big Five'. But what about those animals you've got almost zero chance of seeing? Justin Fox goes in search of South Africa's most elusive animals – the 'Impossible Five' – the Cape mountain leopard, aardvark, pangolin, naturally occurring white lion and the riverine rabbit. Besides the animals, The Impossible Five is peopled with an immensely likeable cast of characters and provides compelling insights into wild South Africa and the local game-ranging and natural-science industries.
