An old but meaningful and beautiful topic that I would like to bump up again.
Love reading it.

I didn't read the date on this.

But the comments especially by Ifubesi and charbel are right on the money today.

It IS an enormous privilege & ressponsibility to work and live in Kruger.

If you don't subscribe totally to these values, then please don't work there.

Beautifully said :clap: :clap: :clap:

Cannot remember ever coming across this topic before - the sentiments expressed are so true. The poem that you quoted Elsa, is beautiful. Once Africa and Kruger have got under your skin - you cannot escape, you will return. The sense of wilderness is still there in Kruger but, unfortunately, the area is smaller and getting smaller each year. Let us all hope that some of those who "do" Kruger because it is the "in-thing" become converts and not only, return again and again but also spread the importance of keeping it as much as possible - a wilderness for all to enjoy.
