Further to the excellent recent post by Jacqui about behavior around elephants, I would suggest future visitors to Kruger have a look at this excellent video.
Rather than telling you what to do, it is all about what NOT to do.
The idiocy these people display is truly astounding, not only breaking the Park rules, but putting their own and other lives in danger. If one of the lions decides to eat a human for lunch no one is going to get out of their car to help. Unfortunately bad behavior is not just restricted to private vehicles but as I have stated before, commercial and safari jeeps also.
Worst of all this type of rule breaking has been on the increase, and it can spoil the enjoyment of this wondrous place for others.
Please watch and consider. And please respect wildlife, we are in THEIR backyard.
Credit and thanks to
for putting this video together.
