A Lilac-brested Roller cost the life of a young German adventurer on the Voortrekker Road late in the 19th century.

Philip1 :thumbs_up:

Adolf Soltke was hitching a ride on a transport wagon when he apparently saw a Lilac-Breasted Roller close by. In his haste to jump off the wagon and shoot the bird for his collection, he shot himself in his leg. He died of gangrene several days later and was buried close to the reputed birth place of Jock of the Bushveld.

Wow, History is full of interesting (and sad!) little stories that one does not always know about or learn about.

OK I'll give this a try.

Springboks don't occur in Kruger due to human intervention. Fact or Myth?....
To see a sunrise in KNP is to see magic.
