Indeed Toks, hopefully maybe a reason why this whole
effort gets shelved, at least for the time being, some
relieve for now,....maybe,...they have some tricks up
the sleeve though,...for settlement later,.... -O-

Well yes indeed RP, though many interested and affected
parties are taking strain under this since then!! Sanparks
need to take cognizance of this and address this issue
with intent for resolve so as to make others feel more at
ease, after all we are talking 4 years+ down the line!

Some folk have there livelihood vested in this and need
conclusion!! The economics of this venture is very crippling
and Sanparks need to understand what they brought about in
their endeavor!!!

Lis at best of time I myself I speculate till this morning!!!

Obviously during the course of conversation one becomes the
custodian of certain information but yah privileged info that
will remain, not for me too divulge!!!

What I can tell you is that the runup to this point has been
very taxing to some, financially that is!!!

Sanparks are responsible for address and responsibility here!!

Dangling a carrot is not the way!!!!
Heh,.. H.e

An interesting short insert!

Malelane definitely going ahead, according to Mabasa, who says the accommodation offered will fill a gap between the campsites and chalets currently on offer, and the luxurious Concessions.

The focus has now come back to the emerging black market, whom Glen Phillips says want the "comforts of the city"...


Dr Joubert and Aikona's views were clearly stated, including luxury development possibly threatening Kruger's status as a Class 2 IUCN reserve.



Comments are asked for by the station at earthwatch@enca.com, so get busy, WN's! ;-)
