Just managed to get the 'original' jungle book on DVD so I can listen to all the
songs that we sing when we see each animal :dance: ie. Up 2 3 4 keep it Up 2 3 4 ..
when we see the ellies marching along!!! .. But must say I am impressed that they have
put a note on the back, explaining that they have removed the bit about the Rhinos if
you can remember in original movie it was a sad bit about poaching and I think now
30years later it is all a bit too real eh!!! :sniper: ..

Going slighly off topic here.
But there are 3 species of Asian rhino, The Great Indian, the Javan and the Sumatran.

The Great Indian is the "safest" (if you can call it that), being bred in a number of zoos.
(Whipsnade Zoo, not far from where I live is part of a breeding project).

The Javan and Sumatran are in severe danger though. There are only a handful of individuals left of these 2 species. The future for them looks bleak.
They live in the jungles on the respective islands and have been almost exterminated due to poaching and habitat destruction.

I remember the elephant walk, although I haven't heard it for years!

Also agree love 'Born Free' but it tends to make me a bit emotional for some reason.
Maybe for all the ones who are not born free :cry:

What a FUN topic. :clap: :clap: I'll have to give this some thought, but, immediately, there are three songs that indelibly capture the magic of wild Africa for me. These songs I can listen to a million times and still not be tired of them. They are:

AFRICA by Toto
JOCK OF THE BUSHVELD by John Edmond
GREAT HEART by Johnny Clegg & Suvuka
EVERYBODY'S TR!
TR: A NEW DAY IS S-OWN
TR: NECTAREAN NICETIES OF THE NORTH
TR: PRIMEVAL PLEASURE

My song for Kruger will be :

Wie Weet (Jopie Adam) Written by Koos Duplesis
I have a CD of Theuns Jordaan where he sings it .


It reminds me of Kruger my Dad an all the things kruger gives me . Peace quiet and forget about the rest of the world.

DIEP-DIEP IN DIE BOSSE IS 'N POORT NA 'N VERGETE LAND
WAAR ONS STIL DAE SLYT, LEEF EN DROOM
EN SWYEND LUISTER NA DIE VOETVAL VAN DIE TYD
TEEN SKEMERAAND, AS HOOP WEER FLUISTER
WIE WEET, IEWERS IS DAAR DALK 'N LAND VAN RUS EN
WIE WEET, WAAR DIE VLUGTELING VEILIG IS
WAAR DIE SWERWER EINDELIK RUS EN AS DAAR IS
NEEM MY SAAM, NEEM MY SAAM
DIEP-DIEP IN DIE BOSSE IS 'N POORT NA 'N VERGETE LAND
'N EDEN HALF VOLTOOI, HALF GEVUL
DEUR HALWE VREDE, WAAR DIE SON NOG SKAAM-SKAAM LOER
KOM KNIEL EN WYK, VOOR HALF GEBEDE
WIE WEET, IEWERS IS DAAR DALK 'N LAND VAN RUS EN
WIE WEET, WAAR DIE VLUGTELING VEILIG IS
WAAR DIE SWERWER EINDELIK RUS EN AS DAAR IS
NEEM MY SAAM, NEEM MY SAAM
Sê MY, IS DAAR IEWERS DALK 'N LAND VAN RUS EN
Sê MY, IS DAAR VêR 'N VREEMDE KUS
WAAR DIE SWERWER EINDELIK RUS EN AS DAAR IS
NEEM MY SAAM, NEEM MY SAAM
WIE WEET
IEWERS DALK 'N LAND VAN RUS EN
WIE WEET

Avicii - Hey Brother

Do yourself a favour, the morning you are leaving for kruger, put this one track into your CD and I assure you, you'll be spinning it non-stop all the way there.

When I fly to Joburg to pick up my Dad to go to Kruger annually, we drive from about midnight from Benoni, to be at Orpen when the gates open.

On Friday I heard this song on the radio, and apart from a line or 2 with dodgy connotations I KNEW.

This is my Kruger song: I drove all night to get to you, by Celine Dion :dance:



really now .... you had to go and make this topic ...


i was just thinking the same song hahahaha

Of course, Supertrooper, your theme song could be more ABBAesque. :wink:
