The Impossible Five
Visiting Africa's game reserves is often all about spotting ‘The Big Five’ – the five most dangerous animals on the continent – the Lion, the Leopard, the Elephant, the Rhino and the Buffalo. But what about those animals you have almost zero chance of seeing? Travel reporter Justin Fox decides to draw up a list of the most elusive animals and sets off to find ‘The Impossible Five’ – the Cape Mountain Leopard, the Aardvark, the Pangolin, the Riverine Rabbit and the Naturally Occurring White Lion.
In a humorous, original, off-beat adventure story, Justin travels around Africa in search of these ‘impossible’ animals, discovering along the way that the people studying those mysterious beasts are sometimes stranger than the animals themselves.
