Titus deserves praise for his attitude and the efficient running of Balule .
KNP is sacred. I am opposed to the modernisation of Kruger and from the depths of my soul long for the Kruger of yesteryear! 1000+km on foot in KNP incl 56 wild trails.200+ nights in the wildernessndloti-indigenous name for serval.

Agreed :D Last year he went out of his way to find us a decent spot ( they were revamping the camp site and he let us use a new site that had not been opened yet as some campers had taken more than one site Always friendly and recognised us from previous visits
God couldn't be everywhere so he made Grandmas

Agree ,also the ladies that help him. It is just difficult to keep track of every body as one do not visit Balule every week :cry:
What we find works perfectly as a small present for saying thanks for that exstra is a pack of cheese curls or sweet wheels(family pack /J...snacks).You find these type of snacks relatively cheap,light and it can't spoil in the heat. It could be then also taken to the families outside the park on leave visits.

How is the new bakkie(truck) doing, his friends at Timbavati and Olifants where all talking about the new car.
Balule alway's a nice story or two. :D

We all agree,
so is there a type of reward , in this case Titus.I'am thinking that forum members give their nominations and say every 6 months the top personnel is awarded with say a nice yellow badge of some sort.This badge can be wear on the uniform or hat and distinct these personnel as outstanding.
Just a thought.
