Re: Lion breaks out of Karoo National Park

SANParks, if you can save him, I know you will. If you can't, my thoughts and support will be with the people taking the difficult decision and the ones having to do the job. It cannot be easy. I only have one request: Should he be moved to another location, or given a "home". Please make ...

Sorry, but it is my strong opinion that we are not hearing the full story of what transpired here.

We probably do not know every detail so why not just stick to what is known instead of embroidering all sorts of additional details into the picture?

Re: Private OSV Guide attacked by a Leopard

I beg to differ here if I may? Krugers rules for game viewing clearly states that 30 to 50 metres should be maintained between the vehicle and the animal being viewed.

Re: Understanding spa facility preferences KNP - survey

I keep on reading warnings about the "wrong" kind of people that the spa would invite. Can someone please tell me what this so called "wrong" kind is? We expect the leaders of this country to go all out and support us in the fight against poaching and to put more of our hard earn...

Re: Developments planned for the KTP

Luxury this, luxury that. And a new landing strip? There is an existing landing strip at Nossob which (if my memory serves me correctly) will be handed back to nature. The new landing strip was positioned in such a way that the aircraft would cause less disturbance for visitors and animals because ...

Re: Visit to Marakele

Hi Swissbird, For the best view of the vultures, be at the top of the mountain early in the morning and wait for them to take flight. They take off from their nesting sites which are at the back of the mountain but they circle past at eye level and very close at times. Enjoy Marakele! It's a very sp...
