Through a series of serendipitous encounters, Will Randall found himself in Botswana, resuming the career as a teacher than had already taken him from an inner-London comprehensive to Poona in India.
And now, in Botswana Time, that career veers enchantingly off the beaten track to the tiny town of Kasane. A place that has 'a very good prison' and arguably the best football team in the land. A town where school speech day is attended by a tribe of mongooses, a family of warthogs, a couple of circling eagles and a watchful buffalo. A town where both Randall and teaching are welcomed with unquestioning openness - and where Randall learns, mostly through (mis)adventure, all about Botswana.
"This enchanting chronicle will leave you feeling charmed and uplifted."
