Roshina Ratnam gives a lively performance of Françoise Malby-Anthony's stories of the joys and trials of sustaining the land of the Thula Thula conservancy in South Africa. Its variety of endangered animals includes elephants, rhinoceri, and more. Ratnam lightly distinguishes the accents of European and Zulu members of the Thula Thula community. It's rather strange that Malby-Anthony, with her heavy French accent, would be voiced in Ratnam's crisp English accent. However, Ratnam still captures the concern and love that Malby-Anthony and her staff exhibit for the animals in their care. Descriptions of managing during the Covid lockdown, forging alliances needed to keep the elephant herd together, and surviving times of violent civil unrest are engrossing and performed with enthusiasm.
