Please joins us for breakfast and a talk on 4 March 2020 at the Kloof Country Club.

Our guest speaker is conservationist Françoise Malby-Anthony.

Françoise Malby-Anthony, along with her late husband, Lawrence Anthony, set up the Thula Thula Game Reserve in KwaZulu-Natal in 1999 to care for troubled elephants.

Thula Thula Game Reserve in KwaZulu-Natal first captured the imaginations of people all over the world when, The Elephant Whisperer, a beautiful memoir by late owner, Lawrence Anthony hit shelves in 2009.

It tells the story of how Lawrence and his wife, Francoise, set to work realising their vision of creating a safe haven for wild animals, while working closely with the surrounding local communities.

When Lawrence passed away unexpectedly in 2012, however, Francoise was suddenly faced with the almost unthinkable task of having to step into the frontlines of conservation herself.

She shares this remarkable journey in her new memoir, An Elephant in my Kitchen. Picking up where The Elephant Whisperer left off, the book is filled with heart-warming animal anecdotes and gut-wrenching tragedy.

Francoise will also be selling her book at the event.
