...you ordered a Kruger map through the mail but it is worn out before you get to Kruger. Your office resembles a main entrance gate at Kruger with maps, photos and plants everywhere.

All of the above , PLUS: You make a Kruger camp fire with "wildtuinhout" (wood bought in Kruger) in the heart of jHB suburbia, and drink coffee from Kruger stainless steel mugs (although you have porcelain mugs a plenty in the kitchen cupboard) and then the adults play wildtuinn-wildtuin.
