I cannot imagine they will upset the animals. I keep ours tied tightly in a bow with very little 'flapping' or hanging down the car door.

Sorry, I thought someone else would answer.

Last years SANParks Forums photographic had a winning entry from RoanEric in the Compact Human Activity section. She now has it as her avatar. A hyena took a liking to her yellow ribbon. Luckily like DB she had tied it on really tight.

We met three hyena pups (very little and sweets) and one of them was litterally enchanted by the ribbon and he stopped to plays with his brothers and spent about 15 minutes sitting near the door looking at flying ribbon. It was so funny and sweet!!!!!!

Yes please don’t stop to FLY TH YR’S, you never know who might be coming around the next corner. We have been flying ours for a long time now, yes it does happen that you don’t see any, but sometimes you stop counting them.

Hi there Guys
What is the procedure with the YR? I am new to the forum and not sure about it, but would love to participate if I can.
What to use, how to use it, and where to use it?
My 4th time to KNP. I can't wait.
Kind regards

Welcome Lion Whisperer
I usually tie a piece of yellow Tshirt material to my side rearview mirror. However anything yellow will suffice and make sure it is visible.
Enjoy your visit.

Hi LionWhisperer

The Yellow Ribbon is a way of identifying other Forumites when visiting a Sanpark. It is tied onto the arm of the driver side rearview mirror and can be made of virtually anything - we use a bright yellow plastic bag which we cut ribbons from. We enjoy stopping other YRs or being stopped and sharing our experiences.

Here is a pic showing our YR

Lionspoon it's not just in KNP. You must fly in any SANPARK.

Got mine all ready for our visit in Maroela Camp for September 20th, 21st & 22nd.
One for the outside mirror, one for the front of the Landy's roof rack and my wife has made a great yellow hat band. She says it's to hide the sweat stains. The old hat is just one of those items I refuse to throw away, it's been to too many amazing places over the years.

Hi all. I am new and just want to find out how do one get the privilege to get hold of a YR. Must one be a ranger or what. I would love to fly the YR everyday in my car.

You are officially now qualified! The day you signed up for this crazy forum, you were entitled to fly your yellow ribbon with pride in any and all SANParks. You will find all sorts of friendly people, also with yellow ribbons on their wing mirrors, stopping to chat to chat to you :lol:
