We have just returned from a trip to Hluhluwe where we had a bit of a family & friends gathering and naturally visited the Hluhluwe Game Reserve.
As we have a wild card, we did not have to pay the entry fee.
However, those of the group that had to pay were told that "The card machine is not working", Cash only!
(Quite easy to issue a reciept from a stolen book!)
At False bay park which is run by Isimangoliso, I paid cash anyway, but the same story emerged with the others.
"No signal for the Speed-point". One of the party did not have cash on him, so the attendant plugged the speed-point in and processed the transaction then & there.
So, a good portion of the fees that we think are supporting wildlife and park upkeep are in fact going into dishonest, cheating little pockets!
So, are you surprised John...
Of course not Edge! Just disappointed, as usual.
Supporting corruption really gets up my nose.
Hulle word so gebore.
Dis vreeslik hartseer dat dinge so gaan. Ek self gee ook glad nie om om conservation fees en derglike fondse te betaal as dit reg aangewend word nie.....maar as daai gelde gesteel word en park se maintenance lei onder daai verlies, dit laat my meter styg!😢
Jy sal nooit die skelm truuks uit hulle kry nie!!
Elke dag word ons belasting geld gesteel. Dit is niks nuut nie...en op ‘n baie kleiner skaal.
