Thanks Rooies

I saw they are putting cattle grid at the gate. So no more Impala in camp for visitors. :(

OK

Who's grave can be found between Pretoriuskop and Numbi Gate? (Too easy I think)

We all know that Harry Wolhuter killed a lion with a knife. But, there is another game ranger that also killed a lion with a knife. He however, also died. In fact it was Wolhuter who found the dead lion with this ranger's knife stuck into it few hundred metres from the ranger. Who was this guy?

An excellent Q, Rooies. I haven't yet been able to find an answer, but will keep trying ...

I totally forgot about this one. I honestly think that it is a bit difficult, because you have to look for an answer in the old books which is unavailable to most forumites. The answer is Mafuta. Stevenson -Hamilton sent him out to investigate an area where the lions were targeting the railway workers. Mafuta went out alone and it was then that the lion attacked him.

:shock: Goeie genade, it appears that there are less than 20 forumites that are active in the quizzes. Stop :D :thumbs_up: and exchange recipes, join us here. Rumour has it that from January 2013, everybody must pass an exam to continue posting on the forum. Now if you don't come and learn from the Quizzes, you will fail, guaranteed. Don't come and cry and say "Rooies, you did not warn us timeously"

What exam nonsense is this Rooies? You smoking too much historical books lately? :hmz:
I'm pretty active on the quizzes but have no freakin' idea what this quiz is about? I thought you should quote someone and we guess who?

@Heksie. Forget about the nonsense I have posted, just throw a question at us. I have asked a question and answered it, so anybody that has something for us, proceed.

Which mite said this?
I then decided to move on and as turned around to put my camera on the passenger seat my heart skipped a beat. This fifth bull had charged my car and stopped a couple of metres from my car. The engine was switched off so I thouht what the hell, take his photo. He then moved back as if to start another charge. I took my oppurtunity to start my car and get some distance between us.
