PNM, just remember, all the time you're looking at the offender(s) and getting agitated, you might be missing that great view/sighting, maybe even a lifer, behind you!
So...... look away.
I know, not as satisfying as shouting at the culprit(s) :twisted:
Luckily you'll have you're own 'policewoman' next to you to keep you in check. :wink:

However, I do know how irritating they can be. But as mentioned by someone else, if it hurts their pockets, they will amend their behaviour and you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you have indirectly supported Kruger financially. :lol:

I have also taken the oath a few times and broken them as quickly as a new years resolution. I just cannot help myself knowing full well that the wife is going to let me have an earfull. I think I must let her do the talking as she is good at it to make me feel bad and I will just sit back and smile at the other guy :D

My booking for July is confirmed. I am practising keeping my mouth shut in KNP by trying to ignore people at my local Spar who park in the Disabled parking bays. Ooooooooh, it is difficult. I shall follow the advice above and if I HAVE to speak, do it quietly with a smile, then take pictures and send them in.

I did once get out of my car in KNP - a flat tyre in the middle of a lion sighting. I was rescued by five KNP staff. My trip report (archived long ago) told the full story.

Cheers
Practising Pete

Flat tyre or not, no way in hell that I am getting out at a lion sighting.....the lions might die from poisoning as I might just S&@t myself if they approach
