It pays to have someone watch your back in the wilderness .
Dec 2005 - near Timbavati picnic spot - these 2 roared us awake where we were sleeping - unbounded by walls .
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.
