No, nothing that shows in the logs.

If someone submits a post between the time you hit reply and submit, your post will not go through and you'll need to submit it a second time. Always check that your post was posted? :wink:

Hi JenB,

Thanks for the answer, because i was really surprised that my Post didn´t show up.
life is Game, you rather play or flee. I chose to play the Game.

These kind of problems require a zero tolerance response.

Saying "well, the folks in Zim are poor, so we will turn a blind eye when they take a shortcut through the KNP to go shopping in Bende Mutale" amounts to opening the floodgates. People will come pouring in, which is in fact already happening. Apart from the genuine "shoppers" there are undoubtedly many undesireable elements taking advantage of the situation.

The Kruger is a National Park. Anyone within its borders who has no legitimate business there should be apprehended and prosecuted, or expelled forthwith to the country of origin.

Once again, this needs to be dealt with urgently and decisively.

I have no interest in visiting a game reserve hoping to see animals in a pristine wilderness only to see humans walking .
KNP is sacred. I am opposed to the modernisation of Kruger and from the depths of my soul long for the Kruger of yesteryear! 1000+km on foot in KNP incl 56 wild trails.200+ nights in the wildernessndloti-indigenous name for serval.
