    Hard to believe, but today it has been 18 years since Hansie Cronje's fatal plane crash.

    Sad to me that most only remembers him due to the match fixing scandal. Personally I remember him as one of the best captains SA cricket has ever seen.

    Each to his own I suppose.

    Ughe, what a hideous idea! Not so much the development as such, by Thebe, but rather more
    where it all will be happening! For once, during lock down it was noted that animals were returning
    too their natural habitat all around Skukz because human activity was curtailed!! Now this cherry on
    top!! The doom and gloom of KNP a reality, based on commercialization and exploitation of national
    reserves by authority!!
    The physical attributes, to this life cannot be made more or less, however can be altered to suit!!

    Running the risk of getting into trouble again for taking this thread off topic, but seriously?

    The impact this can have on nature is infinitesimal. The bridge is already there. Putting a train on it adds nothing. Bearing in mind that the more money a park brings in, the more likely it is to survive in the long term, to me this seems a great idea.

    I have to agree...

    Without ‘commercialization and exploitation’ these parks cannot survive long term

    Look at the Okavango River.
    It is unique in that it does not flow into the sea (like the other rivers), but ends in the delta / swamp.
