I am a free spirit...Either admire me from the ground. Or fly with me...But don't ever try to cage me.

“I asked the Zebra,
are you black with white stripes?
Or white with black stripes?
And the zebra asked me,
Are you good with bad habits?
Or are you bad with good habits?
Are you noisy with quiet times?
Or are you quiet with noisy times?
Are you happy with some sad days?
Or are you sad with some happy days?
Are you neat with some sloppy ways?
Or are you sloppy with some neat ways?
And on and on and on and on and on and on he went.
I’ll never ask a zebra about stripes...again.”

― Shel Silverstein

But it sure is awful stuff to eat."

The view at Olifant's lookout

I have suggested in the feedback that a staff member (preferably an over 60, unfit and cuddly
(read overweight) smoker) try pushing a wheelchair up from the lookout point and then tell me the ramps are "wheelchair friendly" - they are far too steep!

Now what would the Circle of life be without the lions - the S100 was good to me :D

Life Lessons to Learn from The Lion King
Show respect, you might be superior in terms of belongings or business but everybody has self-respect and importance that bring value to the world in their own ways; therefore, they must be respected. At one point, Mufasa explains the fact of life. He says that even though they are on top of the food chain, every animal must be respected for their own dignity and contribution.
Life is all about treating others the way you wish to be treated. Do not measure people by their possession or profession but by their significance. It not only creates loving and lasting relationships with friends or family but creates our own value.

“Jeez, it's a lion! Run Pumbaa! Move it!
