YES BRING YOUR INFANTS !! DESTROY MY AFTERNOON NAP WITH NAPPY CHANGING AND LOUD SCREAMING
!! AND A STENCH OF A 1000 FARTS OR LEAKY SEWAGE DRAIN
i did not drive all the way from durban to be reminded that infants are mini-zombies.
i fail to understand how people can enjoy the holiday while the kid is between 0-8. you just cant, thats why me and the wifey havent had kids yet because we want to ENJOY peace and quiet (among other things
) in the kruger while we are young. (she's 22, me 25)
honestly, just stay at home, raise your kid and if he/she has manners and is 100% potty trained, doesnt need a leash then its all cool.
Enjoy your holiday !
my opel 85" kadett now has 6 kruger stickers and 1 rhinoseday horn !
you know not enough about life.
Normal for a young man.
I had wonderful naps, when the kids of our surrounding play football or star wars under my window.
And bringing the wonder of nature to kids, its never to early.
And be aware, in 2014 is my daughter (5) on my side!
But it goes with kids the same, as with dogs. The problem isn`t never the dog / kid, it´s the person behind!
I have to say I'm with Supertrooper a bit on this. I don't mind kids playing in the camp during the day, or shouting and being excited by the pool. But this August we had a family across from us who had brought a baby who was, at most, a couple of months old. This child screamed and cried pretty constantly for hours on end through the night.
It kept me awake for several hours. Others must have had the same problem as we're weren't the closest tent to their pitch.
I honestly think that parents should have some consideration for others in the choices they make when bringing very young children to the park. If our neighbour had been drinking and having a party we would have been supported by others in complaining about them. But if you do this about babies you risk bring called a Scrooge or told you're preventing them learning about nature.
When I'm in the park I try to be considerate of others - I don't hold loud conversations when I'm getting up at before 5 to get to the gate, I don't slam my car doors when we leave, I don't have parties late into the night, and I do think others should think of the impact they have on their fellow visitors.
There was no way that baby was going to get any enjoyment from being there - it was just too young to be aware! But the impact its parents' choice had on others was massively negative and selfish.
I love seeing the delight on kids faces when they are really appreciating nature in the park but this was just too early.
