Tribute to Johan Strydom RIP

Unread post by K9 Amy » Sat Mar 17, 2012 9:52 am

I was just now made aware that Johan Strydom, a professional guide passed away in the Kruger yesterday. He was stung by a bee and died shortly after. I had the pleasure in meeting, hosting and working with Johan and can testify to his great love for the Kruger. This is a sad loss to our profession and to his family. He was truely a proffesional and well liked guide. RIP friend.

I am so sorry Nkambeni. What a sad weekend. Kruger has lost a fan and someone with a great deal of knowledge, you have lost a friend and colleague and his family have lost a very special person from their lives. My condolences.
