    Re: Camping Safety Paranoia

    They sliced our tent open - entered from the rear where they could not be seen.

    I lock everything away in the car when going for game drives.
    Luckily our kit is compact and folds away easily.

    Eland are dying in Kgalagadi due to drought

    It is due to water intoxication!!!


    Some of the animals drink too much water too quickly, resulting in water intoxication.

    Many young eland are now without parents.

    Re: Best cooler box?

    We bought the same. Very nice quality.
    Don't buy a cooler box till you have looked at their range.

    Tentco is a top brand. Have their gazebo etc - no problem with spares.
