Time and again we are confronted on this forum about "rule breakers" in Sanparks - those folk who, through selfishness or just pure ignorance, go about breaking some or other well established "Park" rule(s), thereby potentially endangering themselves and/or spoiling viewing pleasure and general atmosphere for many others.
Over time, quite a few threads have come up with some great suggestions on how to create better awareness amongst all (incl. experienced "Sanparkers" and those new to the parks, overseas visitors etc.) of the rules and general information that help to make everyone´s visit to Sanparks´more enjoyable. e.g. creating new brochures with simple diagrams etc etc. I hope some of these initiatives will "come off" and be turned into reality...even though some of them could be relatively cost intensive.
Having travelled in parts of Kruger again in 2009 following a long absence, I was very positive at the number of "information signs" that were
around - all of which aim at creating AWARENESS
of the rules or other useful information
that will add to everyone´s viewing pleasure and general enjoyment of the parks.....these "vital signs
" could be anything from speed limit signs on roads, to info signs on bridges, near hides, in camps, at gates, at swimming pools, in restaurants etc etc. etc.
I therefore thought it might be a good idea to create this thread where we all share some favourite shots showing some of these signs. The objective being to raise and keep awareness only
- keeping them top of mind so to speak - at least for those folks visiting the forum! And perhaps, just perhaps, it will help a little to combat out of line behaviour...alot of which I am convinced is just caused by ignorance...
The intention here is NOT
to show pics akin to those in the gallery of shame....this is not about pointing fingers and attaching blame....its about AWARENESS only.
So I will start with two examples of "vital signs" I captured last year in Kruger....both very different, but both very useful in contributing to my and others´ overall enjoyment of the Park! Please feel free to add your similar pics if you think this is a good idea....Same signs in different places, camps, interesting places in the Parks are quite ok!!!
Mods...if this is too similar to other threads feel free to merge it or "can it"
