Publisher's Summary

Tired of mortgage and car payments, 30-somethings Andrew and Gwynn sold everything they owned and escaped their humdrum nine-to-five existence for life in paradise - a tiny island accessible only by boat or air in one of the remotest spots on Earth: the Okavango Delta in Botswana. Woefully inexperienced, they took control of a luxury game lodge where the rich and famous went to sip gin and tonics with lions and elephants.
Trouble soon followed. The couple's lives were threatened daily by snakes, elephants, baboons, and a hyena with a plastic fetish. Not to mention the endless - and often insurmountable - challenge of keeping their five-star guests fed in a world where the closest supermarket was an air flight away. Among others, their guests included a famous Hollywood director, some French aristocrats, a Mafia lawyer, world-famous singers, and the England cricket captain. Lighthearted and humorous, Torn Trousers will enthrall you with its unique look at life in wild Africa.

An adventure that relates

When you have a chance to live through someone else's eyes, it is a privilege . I feel like I know Gwyn and Andrew as people now, not just characters. While this is not meant to be an epic saga, I thoroughly enjoyed the glimpse into bush life, into an honest life choice and the rewards, and the challenges overcome that all adventurers and entrepreneurs share.
Enjoy this story as it takes you to Africa and a moment in time that I think we might all long for: a chance at a new life and an old one left behind. I thoroughly enjoyed the escape to the Okavango.
