I too smoke, however never leave laying around.
I make sure they are disposed of correctly, even if that means carrying an empty 500ml coke bottle along. :tongue:

Cigarette Butts?
Too many on my travels while Kruger parking.
I am a smoker and I always have a container in my vehicle to dispose of the ugly smelly butts, and boy does it make my car smell ugly,
I put up with my own filthy habit and empty my smelly ashtray in the dustbins in the appropriate manner at the end of each day.

I always carry a water bottle with me that I call my 'cancerwater/kankerwater'
But now I bought those plastic cigarette cups/ashtrays that are pretty awesome and a lot easier to control. I don't even ash in the Park. And with sightings I can put my cigarette in there while taking kiekies. No cigarette butts in the Park :naughty:

Heksie, I think you are referring to the ashtray called "Bhika"? They are brilliant. I used to use one of those metal ones, with the spinning top, but they tend to rust, as I used it on my boat as well. The Bhika has solved that problem, and like you, I enjoy a bit of photography, so it works to hold a cigarette.

I think littering of any kind is not good. It is always better to place rubbish in the rubbish bins so that the animals can see that humans are responsible.

We were in Letaba in August. On our way to the restaurant we saw 4 monkeys sitting on the grass eating "stompies". You could see that they knew how to tear them open and only eat the tobaco. This happend every afternoon we were walking around the camp.

I think people who do not respect the rules and regulations of Kruger are one of the most upsetting things to digest for those who do respect the rules and regulations. That is why it is best to keep on reporting them (those people who break the rules).

I was taught in my earliest years to put refuse in the bin. I taught my kids, and they are teaching their kids. I was told by a fellow who dropped his drink carton on the pavement (when I pointed out where the refuse bin was) that he is making employment for another guy to pick it up. I told him the municipality puts out refuse bins so that their employed guy can pick that up. He used abusive language and walked on. I picked up his carton and put it in the bin. The thing is education, education, education. But the parents (and teachers) do not seem to care! That is why our country and towns and Parks are so filthy!!!

According to the rules on the Kruger entry permit, isn't Kruger a non smoking area?

According to SA Tobacco Law, any enclosed place(And Kruger used to be) is a smoke free zone. When they dropped the fences to Moz, (And the locals used the western fence for snares) it is no more enclosed so the Law does not apply anymore. :lol: :lol:

Hi guys, I was in the Park in June and it was my first visit.

Ovarall, I found very little Law breakers, and even at Predator sightings, there was no such incident, although I did manage to come across speeding a few times.

I do believe the Park is in very good hands.

I am a Kruger Park lover and we go once or twice a year. My twin daughters love the place and they will be 13 years next week!
It really bugs us how many visitors and even park staff brake the rules in the park, even writing to the parks head nothing seems to change!!!!!
I really hope that something will change in the park and our country with law and order!
Hope that our kids will be able to enjoy the Kruger for years to come like I have been since I was 4 years old, I am 47 now and will go there every year again!
Yes dustbins seem to be far and few in the camps!
Stop speeding, please!!!!
