EDUCATION SAFARIS CC

A GUIDE FOR MISINFORMED VISITORS, TOURISTS IS URGENTLY NEEDED.

Tourist guides to South Africa are available everywhere. In airports, bookstores and curio shops. And with so many of them around, you would think that all the important “need to know” information would be covered. Apparently not. With the help of  a Facebook Community, it was revealed that the following questions are still on the minds of our visitors:

 

Questions on Africa’s wildlife:

“What do I do if I get bitten by a lion?”  - Chinese tourist overheard on safari at Tsavo – Chloe Stoodley

 

“Do giraffes hunt in packs?” - Jeannie Celeste Kenney

 

“What species of dog is a lion?” - Nicola Leach

 

“Are there lions in the street in South Africa?”  - Christel Marais

 

“Is the hyena related to the brown bear?” - Asked by an American tourist while visiting Moholoholo near Hoedspruit – Eileen Bailie

 

“What time can we expect the lions to roar?” American tourists overheard at Pilansberg – Lynton Lewis

 

“Now I know why giraffes are so tall, so they can hunt monkeys in trees.” Asked by a guest after seeing a giraffe chewing on a bone – Bush W Gouws

 

“At what time do they round up the animals and lock them in the cages for the night?” asked by a German tourist in Etosha – Tina Schilling

 

“Where do rhinos lay their eggs?” asked by a Japanese traveller - ThombeSAFARI

We think such statements give reason that visitors should urgently get hold on the                                        “MY SAFARY DIARY”
