Obviously, this subject is still not completely exhausted.
I think there is a link between the violence in South Africa in general and the not so strong violence in the Kruger Park.
Yes, the probability to become a crime victim there is not very likely
But the more I browse through the Internet, the more I think about this issue.
I am sure that many people abroad do think a lot about “Can I travel to South Africa or not.”. This is an important issue for a country in which tourism plays such an important role especially in connection with 2010. A year in which many first visitors will come to your country and many consider visiting at least the Kruger Park.
It is a bit strange to hear that on the one hand, people say I've never seen anything bad or experienced in relation to violence or crime. Others say, yes I have so much seen and experienced, I have enough of them.
Of course, it is difficult in a forum in which people are involved in the Kruger Park enthusiasm, to confront the forum participants with these rather unpleasant issues.
I do not want to be negative. But of course I want a balanced picture of the matter.
Of course, one can say, OK, either you dare to go, or you don’t. But wouldn’t it be to easy?
Well, I have said yes. that I will come!!! . But I will not get rid of the feeling that it is not as harmless as it might imagine.
I am from a far away land but very often a distant view on the things is not the worst one.
I would therefore like to conclude by simply not be hold as a coward but as someone who is seriously considering the things before he ist doing something .
Well and to come to an end for today one thing has deeply impressed me, something I found on youtube and which is spoken by an compatriot of yours…..
