-O-

What does it say?
But if the Virtual Honorary Rangers say you HAVE to keep all body parts and camera gear inside the car as well as keeping your car windows SHUT =O: =O: =O: =O: =O: then as the most important decision making unit of SANParks it must be true =O: =O: =O: ..But I will pass on that one and judge EACH situation on its merits and I will decide if I have to lean out to get pics or to poke a big lens out the window or get out and retrieve a glass bottle in the veld that could cause a dangerous man made fire ...my contribution to a safe and tidy Park

As always, too late 0*\

The person/s who has/have decided on that particular rule has/have not thought of the reactions to the wording. Don't they use control reading of such an important piece of paper or do they only spell check 0*\

Obviously NOT written by anyone with an interest in photography. 0- Not ONE SINGLE tourist with an interest in same would ever visit Kruger if it were actually enforced.

MAY be a CYA "rule" JIC someone gets harmed when their window was open. :-? -O- -O- Liabilities, you know.

There are sign boards at all gates absolving SANParks from any harm to People and equipment ..You basically enter at your own Risk

This comes from the Rules and Regulations posted on the SANParks website, and nowhere does it say your windows have to be closed. So, what they have on their website and what they have at the gate say two different things!! O** 0*\
