I've had a couple of encounters with the vicious natives. The first two were before I was armed and even though they were both resolved with minimal violence (one with none at all and the other with going hands on) that was due more to luck and intoxication on the part of the attacker than anything I did. Since then I've managed to avoid a couple of incidents and only once been pushed so far as to reach for a weapon fortunately that guy was switched on enough to realise things had not worked out as planned and he bugged out.

I did encounter a couple of interesting individuals while working as a cop, fortunately none too violent. While I have drawn my sidearm and pointed my rifle a couple of times I was never required to shoot anyone. Using my batton is a different story though.

I have a couple of vicious dog encounters. (Personally one plus reason for carrying mace IMHO) One that involved a Mastrif going absolutely beserk at my 4 year old while on a beach. I had actually drawn my firearm that time and as I was dragging my kid out the line of fire and bringing the gun into play some dirty blond hippie threw herself onto the dog and yelled at how "Mr Fluffy was just playing with her!" Yeah and Azaria Chamberlain was just playing with the dingoes. If your dog isn't socialized, keep it on a leash, even on a dog friendly beach. Fortunately the cops who responded were kind enough to believe the guy with the crying 4 year old and not the mastif owning hippie who was being pulled around by her growling animal.

As to the actual animals here, sure :)

I've been charged at by elephants. I've been stalked by lions. I've been on the edge of a hyena fight. I've come across leopards at night. Then there have been the baboons.

Elephants are great cratures. They don't have to worry about anything by the time they are a couple of years old. Except people. And honestly these days that isn't much of an issue any more. But you can still piss the hell out of one by simply getting too close to it. Which I have done both in a vehicle and on foot. I must say being on foot in front of a charging 10 ton animal is NOT fun :p

While on a safari in the Okovango delta we surprised a herd of ellie's. We'd heard them stripping branches off trees so went to investigate. What we didn't realise was they weren't making lots of noise far away, they were making quiet noises behind the bushes we were walking around. Welcome to being in the middle of a herd :0 . While the charges from the dominant elephant were real, she didn't press her issue once we showed we were happy to back off. The ellies left the are immediately after the confrontation.

Same trip in the evening we were sitting at a water hole in our Unimog, and the ellies decided they wanted to chase us off. Again a real charge.

Couple years before we were mock charged by an ellie in a park. It had great fun chasing us down the road for about 800m, 20m at a time. Mock charge close enough to make use have to back off, wait, repeat. I swear the damn thing was laughing at us when it moved off.


Baboons are a serious issue near where my mom lives. The "Table Mountain National Park" is the range of mountains that runs along the length of the Cape peninsular. The bloody hippies have decided that with humans encroaching on the mountains more, the baboons need more space.

Now there have always been baboons in these mountains. I have nothing wrong with that. The mountains have always been protected habitats. I have nothing wrong with that either. Now the hippies think we should be letting the baboons into the suburbs because "it is their home too".

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight. Lets let intelligents, agressive animals with almost human like manipulation skills into our houses. Nothing bad will EVER happen with that will it?

Except baboons will trash your kitchen looking for food, and they will agressively defend the food they find. And they'll remember where they can find food even if they never find it there again.

I've had to chase some baboons off my mom's property. And she lives about 7km inside the suburbs. If not more.

Bloody hippies.

Clearly "hippies" is code for "liberals"... lol

Great stories btw. You should post some pictures of some of the scenery where you live. I have friends that have been there many times (one actually got pictures of a crocodile losing a fight to a leopard, which have been all over the media since he shot them.)

I've seen a croc lose a fight to a duck. Crocs are pansies. I'll look for the video. It's on Super 8 tape somewhere.

I'll have to looks for some pics of around here.

I watched an alligator try to eat an empty beer can once. It got stuck on the thing's upper teeth. The gator flailed around until the can got unstuck.

I'd consider that a win for the can.

While it was a satirical exaggeration, Kayback, in my brain that is how all of RSA is. Also, it doesn't help that stereotype when I picture you with a broom, swatting baboons out of your mother's kitchen. 

Also, while I'm at it, you guys have the least efficient language, ever. 

Somehow in the middle of Wikipedia surfing I got to reading about white supremacy movements. I don't recall how in the world, but I did.

Anyway, if you think about other countries and their supremacy movements, you've got the Ku Klux Klan for the Americans. Rather simple. You've got the National Socialists, which in proper German efficiency can be shortened down into the four-letter Nazi . . . 

Then you've got the South African "Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging." 

Seriously? 

I don't know how many syllables it is because I cannot speak your crazy gibberish tongue, but it looks like someone placed their hands on a keyboard and mashed down.

Define freely? All the spaces where the animal "roam" are fenced in and generally removed from the population.

The Baboons are free roaming, as in they don't stick to the parks and reserves and there are unfenced ones in the mountains.

There are unfenced leopards and small antelope in the mountains as well. (probably no leopards in the Table Mountain chain, but the Hottentots def have and they are about 30 min out of town.

But the parks are huge.

For example the Kruger National park, the prime park is 7,300 square miles. Wales is only 8,000 square miles. It is bigger than Connecticut and Delaware added together.

They are busy increasing the Addo Elephant park from 1600 square Km to 3600.

So they are "free" but also "fenced".

Between Cape Town airport and CBD there is a game park on the side of Table Mountain with gnu, zebra and eland. But they have a fairly small area to move in.

I think it is 5, without the "Afrikaaner" which is another 4 ish.

It's shortened to the "AWB".

Ah-free-kah-ner Veer-stund-be-veer-gung. The "gung" on the end you won't get right because it isn't a "Gee" it is a gutteral rolling of the "g" that I don't think exists in any language besides ours.

Afrikaans is one of the ELEVEN official languages in South Africa. Afrikaans was the language of the original white South African, the opresive whites. Known as the "boers" (Boo-errs), it is Afrikaans for farmer.

They decended from the original Dutch colonists. It was originally referred to as "kitchen Dutch". It absorbed many different languages, but it is about 80-90% 17th century Dutch. It was spread over South Africa with the "Trekboers", literally the "travelling farmers". When the Dutch gave the Cape to England, they left and moved into the interior, settling the "unpopulated" space they found and made new countries. When the country was unified, as landowners they went into goverment. They then ran the country to their benifit, as the British had taught them to, by opressing the natives.

In all honesty, the white Afrikaaner built South Africa. They just used opressed black workers to do it.

The cynic in me says it was here, under developed for all of eternity, then the whites settled it. This is only partly true because it is quite a big place, and the "unpopulated interior" was populated, just sparcely populated. Probably rather like the USA in 1500's.

Certainly. It's an ethical quandary you can find pretty much anywhere colonization existed. Americans with transplanted African slaves and natives. Brits with India. Etc. 

The area was modernized but to what ends? No perfect answer. 

I didn't intend on bringing that moral dialog to the conversation table. I was more or less amused with the Afrikaans language, which seems to really enjoy tossing in random letters and combining 19 words into one.

lol, my friend from SA could not get used to the roads here during his visit. Noticeable lack of elephants though, I can't blame him for feeling a little out of place.

Lol I've never had issues with that. I've driven in the US, Europe and the Middle East.

Driving on the wrong side of the road in the wrong side of the car was ok.

I'll admit when I got back home from the ME I ended up on the wrong side of an unmarked, unpaved road for about 10 second before I went WTH? and corrected. I put that down to thinking too hard about it NOT being a problem :)

The rost thing I've expreienced from you guys driving the wrong side of the road was my Dad getting hit by a cyclist in Amsterdam. He looked right and stepped into the road to cross, only to get mowed down from the left. There was tourist and cyclist and bike and swearwords all over the place. Of course us, his loving family remained exactly where we were and burst into laughter.
