How old was James Stevenson Hamilton when he got married ?
KNP is sacred. I am opposed to the modernisation of Kruger and from the depths of my soul long for the Kruger of yesteryear! 1000+km on foot in KNP incl 56 wild trails.200+ nights in the wildernessndloti-indigenous name for serval.

He finally retired from the KNP in 1948 and died in 1957 (?) at the age of 93 (according to my memory) .
