About the Author
Tina Scotford’s The Land of Kachoo is her first published work, and is inspired by her personal travels to stunning bush destinations including the Serengeti, Lake Tarangire and the Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania, Chobe and the Okavango Delta in Botswana, and South Africa’s very own Kruger National Park, Hluhluwe and Klaserie game reserves. Included among Tina’s interests are supporting KwaZulu-Natal’s Sharks rugby, cycling and hiking in the Drakensberg, watching sport and the crime channel on DSTV, and practising the art of yoga. Tina Scotford currently lives in Durban with her partner, Gary. Together, they have a beautiful daughter, Sienna and a pet rabbit, Amy.
