FYI there are no springboks in the Kruger Park.



:lol: :lol: CR - your post re the Springboks in KNP reminds me of a special forum member from early days who thought there were springboks in KNP and was teased mercilessly about this for a long time after! Perhaps a good quiz question.... who was it ;)
