Hi all,

Must Reads:

Forum Help (please get familiar) - This forum will help you to get familiar with the forum.

Just for all the new members joining, a brief overview of what the members have agreed / not agreed on:

01. When a forum member visits the park, he/she must have a yellow ribbon on the drivers side to be identified.
02. Members must wave a "hello" to all other people in the park.
03. Amarula on ice is a great drink after a hard days spotting.
04. Members must try to do a Bush braai or hiking trail at least once in their lives.
05. There is a club called Club Lits. (Leopards in trees) ... Some agree that you get them and some do not. Proof of a leopard in a tree (photo) will allow you into this club ... that's if you want to join them (mostly angels belong to this club).
