    And like my friend that was robbed at Storms River in April by a SANPARKS employee... you could go straight to the manager with the pics.

So one morning in the camp the wife decides to take some meat out from the camping fridge for a braai later on the same day and to our surprise and disgust we noted that some pkts of steak, lamb chops and wors had been stolen from the freezer. Could it be a fellow camper or workers in the camp ? It could have happened during the day or night whilst we where at the shop in the camp or out on a game drive. Who knows? Definitely not primates because the freezer has a cover and a sturdy strap which was always intact. It is just pretty sad that one now has to actually find a way to lock the fridge/freezer whilst it is inside your tent. Next thing I guess we will have to chain the camping fridge/freezer to the caravan undercarriage or something. Crazy world we live in!

    My Freezer and Deep Cycle Battery are in our Skipper Trailer tent ...but locked and the battery weighs 50 kgs in its Ammo Box and we camp at camps where theft is unlikely to occur ...Tsendze, Balule , Maroela etc

    There was a time when the camping community in SA was a true community where campers looked after each other. I remember my dad spending hours on various occasions fixing other campers' tow vehicles or trailers. I think they call it "Paying it forward" these days. Sad that we have had to put a name to something that just happened as the norm. You used to be safer out there camping than if you were in your home.
    The activity is still the same, all be it an expensive and often luxurious past time now, but the mind set and respect for others has sadly gone.
