Niq Mhlongo
Betrayal in the wilderness (EN)

As a present for St. Valentine's day, the narrator in Niq Mhlongo's Radiobook invites his wife Mmabatho for a trip to the wilderness of the Savanna lands, at the Sabi Sabi Private Game Reserve near the Kruger National Park. They go for a drive with some people in a jeep to look for wild animals to take pictures of. Unfortunately, the wilderness doesn't seem very  eager to accommodate the uninvited guests.
