Why do people always want the cats to move and when they do they complain that the picture is blurred :doh:

Why do people come to the park to be in the fresh air yet drive around with their windows closed and aircons running :hmz:

Why do people buy brand new SUVs for bush bashing and spend every evening checking for scratches?

Why do some people profess to be lovers of the wilds and its sounds but require accomodation with suitable decorations and comforts such as airconditioning - which masks the sounds of the wilds - and then need to talk loudly around the braai to overcome the man made noise ?

BB , this topic could make a good Don Martin MAD Magazine cartoon .

Why do some promote and practice healthy eating habits at home but whilst in Kruger cholesterol laden unhealthy food for breakfast and braai time is dished up without any feeling of guilt or fear of bad karma? :roll: I know it is probably only one or two visitors, the vast majority stick to the healthy food routine :hmz: :lol:.

Why do we love quiet camps such as Tamboti, Tsendze, Balule but then promote it on the forum?

I certainly keep my eating habits, whether at home or in the park - I use low fat margarine for the brekkie :lol: . MEAT IS HEALTHY!!!

Why do people allow themselves to be influenced by "braai" culture, boerwors and use that as an excuse to visit the KNP. Works for me! WELCOME TO ALL FOREIGN VISITORS :whistle: . May you have a sausage of a time, prime time beefed-up experience, and sizzling hot ..... charcoals! :D

Why do some complain that they didn't "see" anything that day and yet still have a list as long as their arms. :?

Right on MM :thumbs_up:

I know somebody with a shiny spotless scratchless SUV that gets washed weekly whether it needs it or not and once it begged me to take it somewhere to get it really dirty, but that would be construed as theft :wall:

Okay okay why do people go to camps such as Tsendze, Balule and Tamboti if they will surely be eaten by leopards, lions, mambas and spiders?

Why do people complain about too many visitors in the south, while they are part of the too many visitors?
