Re: Using sightings groups/apps - good or bad?

Hey all,

I have managed to get a ranger that I can sms to all the "major" sightings and he will send other rangers or a member of the protection Services to that sighting and hand out fines to people behaving badly.

I hope you all agree that this is a great idea.

Re: Using sightings groups/apps - good or bad?

On our last visit - Latest Sightings helped me to see my first flamingo ever in KNP - at Ngotso dam. Somebody tinged it - but we did not see it there that day. 2 Days later, we scanned the area again and saw it! Bird sightings are often tinged and people actually get quite excited about it on the a...

Re: Using sightings groups/apps - good or bad?

I have now added an extra line in sightings when people report that there is a big traffic jam at the sighting like this:

11:35am
lionesss hunting buffalo
H1-4, 3km before satara
(Lots of traffic, so avoid going to this sighting)
Tinged by Karen

Maybe this will stop it getting worse.

Re: Using sightings groups/apps - good or bad?

When I first started I didn't think more than 10 people will be obsessed with Kruger enough to follow sightings, so I never thought I would make anything out of this. Money wasn't in my mind, I just hated it when people went to Kruger, saw nothing and said that they were never going back. Through th...

Re: Using sightings groups/apps - good or bad?

It seems that everyone is blaming Latest Sightings for all the road kills seen everywhere. How can people prove this? Most reports of road kills are as gates open. Lets also see how many animals would have died if it wasn't for Latest Sightings: 20+ Hyenas with snares. All removed. 5 Cheetahs with s...

Re: Game Spotting Games

We play that every day we start on a fresh list. Who ever spots an animal rights it down. You can only spot it once, so lets say baboon. If I spot it I write it down. But if my dad spots it later during the day it doesn't count. At the end of that day who ever spotted the most amount of animals gets...
