Having dogs as pets is preferred by a majority of the people, because dogs are loyal and they guard the house. Some people dread keeping animals because they either hate to take care of them, or they are scared of allergies from pets.

Apart from cats and dogs, there are so many other animals that are kept,like rabbits, fish, birds like parrots and love birds, guinea pig and sometimes monkey’s, spiders and even snakes. It is always better to avoid keeping wild animals as pets.

It is fun to have pets at home. Take proper care of them and they will always be your best friend.

The History of Leather

The use of animal hides for clothing and basic survival items can be traced back as far as Early Man in the Paleolithic period. Cave paintings discovered in caves near Lerida in Spain depict the use of leather clothing. Man hunted wild animals for food but removed their hides and skins from the dead carcass and used them as crude tents, clothing and footwear.

Early man realized that the skins rapidly putrefied and thus became useless. They needed a way to preserve the hides. The earliest method was to stretch the hides and skins on the ground to dry, rubbing them with fats and animals brains while they dried. This had a limited preserving and softening action. Primitive man discovered also that the smoke of wood fires could preserve hides and skins, as did treating them with an infusion of tannin-containing barks, leaves, twigs and fruits of certain trees and plants. It seems likely that man first discovered how to make leather when he found that animal skins left lying on a wet forest floor became tanned naturally by chemicals released by decaying leaves and vegetation.

Much later the use of earth salts containing alum as a tanning agent to produce soft white leather was discovered. The alum leathers could be dyed with naturally occurring dyestuffs in various plants. In Egyptian times leather was used for sandals, clothes, gloves, buckets, bottles, shrouds for burying the dead and for military equipment. In Egyptian tombs, wall paintings and artifacts depicted these uses of leather.

The Romans also used leather on a wide scale for footwear, clothes, and military equipment including shields, saddles and harnesses. Excavation of Roman sites in Great Britain has yielded large quantities of leather articles such as footwear and clothing.The manufacture of leather was introduced to Britain by the Roman invaders and by religious communities, whose monks were expert at making leather, especially vellum and parchment for writing purposes.

The ancient Britons had many uses for leather from footwear, clothing and leather bags, to articles of warfare. The hulls of the early boats, known as coracles, were also covered in leather. Through the centuries leather manufacture expanded steadily and by mediaeval times most towns and villages had a tannery, situated on the local stream or river, which they used as a source of water for processing and as a source of power for their water wheel driven machines. Many of these tanneries still exist, but in many towns the only remaining evidence is in street names, like Tanner Street, Bark Street and Leather Lane.

The earliest crude leathers were made by first immersing the raw hides and skins in a fermenting solution of organic matter in which bacteria grew and attacked the hides or skins, resulting in a loosening of the hair or wool and some dissolving out of skin protein. The hair or wool was then scraped off with primitive blunt stone or wooden scrapers and fat or meat still adhering to the flesh side was removed in a similar manner.

Tanning, the conversion of pelt into leather, was done by dusting the raw stock with ground up bark other organic matter and placing them in shallow pits or vats of tannin solution.Further additions of ground bark, were made from time to time until the tannin solution had penetrated right through the skin structure, taking up to two years for very thick hides. The leather was then hung up for several days in open sheds. The dressing of the leather involved paring or shaving it to a level thickness, coloring, treatment with oils and greases, drying and final treatment of the grain surface with waxes, proteins such as blood and egg albumins, and shellac to produce attractive surface finishes.

During the Middle Ages leather was used for all kinds of purposes such as: footwear, clothes, leather bags, cases and trunks, leather bottles, saddlery and harness, for the upholstery of chairs, and couches, book binding and military uses. It was also used to decorate coaches, sedan chairs and walls.The majority of the leather was tanned with oak bark but soft clothing, gloving and footwear leathers were tanned with alum, oil, and combinations of these two materials.With the discovery and introduction of basic chemicals like lime and sulphuric acid, tanners gradually abandoned their traditional methods and leather production slowly became a chemically based series of processes.

The growth of industrialization in the 18th and 19th centuries created a demand for many new kinds of leathers, e.g., belting leathers to drive the machines being introduced into industry, special leathers for use in looms in the textile industry, leathers for use as diaphragms and washers, leathers for use in transport and for furniture upholstery.

At the end of the nineteenth century, the invention of the motor car, modern roads, new ranges of coal tar dyestuffs, the demand for softer, lightweight footwear with a fashionable appearance, and a general rise in the standard of living created a demand for soft, supple, colorful leather. The traditional vegetable tanned leather was too hard and thick for these requirements and thus, the use of the salts of the metal chromium was adopted and chrome tanning became the tannage for modern footwear and fashion leathers. It produces soft, supple, beautiful and fine leathers, reflecting the way we live.

I hope you enjoyed this little history lesson!

The Old Diviner

The Old diviner

My father had a geologist friend who knew of my interest in crystals and attractive pieces of coloured ore. He was going on a day’s journey into the bush with an old water diviner to site a new mine. My father asked if I could go with. I didn’t like the geologist, I felt that he considered me to be a burden, but I wanted to go deep into the bush. I wanted to see wild animals and find wonderful crystals. Most of all I wanted to see a hyena. The start of the journey was exciting, it was my type of bush – thick forests and open vleis (seeps) – but the dense forest soon petered out. Village charcoal burners had thinned the forests to make charcoal to sell across the border in the Congo. On the way there I was sitting straight, looking out for wildlife – but I saw nothing. The area had been hunted out long before. There were no crystals to be found either, and the geologist sarcastically said, ‘elephants and crystals don’t grow on trees sonny – anyway this bush is dead.’

Only a prig like you would say something like that, I thought. I had learnt the word prig from a Somerset Maugham story about an arrogant rubber plantation manager in Malaya. I liked both the sound and meaning of it. I could name a few prigs in Luanshya. The geologist was added to my prig list. The day was tedious and uneventful. On the way back I was tired. We had been out nine hours. I flopped back in my seat on the point of dragging my musings into a funk hole – I was told I was very good at that. The old water diviner, an Afrikaner who had been raised in the Karoo desert, the driest part of South Africa, must have sensed my gloom for he started telling me stories.

He told me he was able to find water with two copper rods, but that he could also divine with two green sticks. The geologist, who was actually doing the groundwork for a modern hydrological survey, respected the water diviner and his methods. They often yield interesting results, and had brought him along ‘out of interest’, so he said.

The diviner went on to tell me that contrary to what you see and think you know, Africa does not always deliver what you would expect. Even if you had prior knowledge as to what should happen – it might not happen. He said he used this way of thinking when he was divining for water. Underground water was never a given – Africa had many dry rivers both above and below the ground. He then fell into a preoccupied silence as he groped for his tobacco in a canvas bag under his seat. What was this wizened old man with tobacco stains on his teeth and fingers telling me? I guessed it was going to be interesting. Then he looked at me, and cleared his tarred throat; it was as if he was about to give a wedding speech. His pupils were glistening black diamonds in the wrinkled recesses of his eye sockets as my curiosity took a strong hold.

Out of earshot of the prig steering his rattling Land Rover, the diviner told me that in Africa, physical things could suddenly appear and then just as quickly disappear. ‘But they did nothing of the sort’ he said with a confident snort. ‘It was the way we were looking at them that made these strange things happen. Everything had an energy of its own which could never be lost – it merely altered its shape in time and space.’ Nodding in mused self-agreement, he then kept quiet for a good while. ‘Energies are like hyenas,’ he finally uttered. Wow! Now I really was all ears. I really wished I had a grandfather like him. With slow forceful words he continued, ‘An area could have no hyenas – then suddenly out of nowhere, one would appear.’ If someone in a remote village had been cursed; that night, without a single pug mark on the sandy floor of the village clearing, a hyena would appear at his door – even though hyenas had not been seen or heard of in the area for a very long time. ‘This was because the hyena had always been there,’ he said with a smug air of all-weather assurance.

True to form, the prig appeared oblivious to our important conversation, his mind doggedly fixed on the bumpy road that was pulling his vehicle to pieces. Once again I was sitting upright looking for hyenas in what remained of once thick Miombo woodlands while the old diviner spoke. My ears were pricked, my eyes peeled and my skin bristled – my bony little bum hardly made an indent on the green canvas of the backseat. Out there in the failing forest light I was hyper-sensitized to everything real and imaginary. I knew that hyenas were tribal omens for very important things in Africa, that’s why the Nyau and the Makishi only used effigies of hyenas in their most serious rituals. There was no logical reason for a hyena not to re-appear in the ‘dead’ bush, in the immediate here and now of our homeward journey in the prig’s rattle wagon.

The diviner continued: ‘Hyenas are a mystery to their fellow beasts. They can eject an aardwolf, an aardvark, or even a bad tempered honey badger from its burrow in an anthill, commandeer it, and with the collusion of the termites; do the strangest of things.’ Now I was nape hair erect and alert! My mind ran wild, throwing my thoughts all over the back seat and floor of the vehicle as it trundled down that remote dirt road. The light was receding fast and Mr ‘Cool’ the geologist put his foot on the accelerator of his ‘Landy.’ The diviner fell into another one of his tobacco chewing silences and I started to ruminate over things – I took as long as it took for him to suck on nicotine: spit spent tobacco, and pick his cracked lips free of the soggy shreds. Whatever it was that crept through his well-seasoned mind was worth waiting for.

‘Lion, in particular,’ he said, ‘despise hyenas, and will hunt them down and kill them – sometimes heartlessly killing hyena pups in the den so as to curb the number of hyenas in their territory.’ When being chased by a lion, he explained, a hyena would disappear down a burrow in an anthill and never come out. The lion would give an eerie howl of frustrated annoyance, but no matter how long a lion waited; even if a pride of lions took turns to be on guard for a month, the hyena would never come out – this was because the hyena was no longer there. ‘When a hyena takes over a burrow in an anthill,’ he said, ‘it is his intention that his mind and body be melted down by a sea of termites.’ This was very different to a dead animal being eaten by red ants. It was the morphing of the hyena into an aethereal life force that parasitically attached itself to all members of the termite Queendom. After an uncanny gulp of held breath he explained further; the termite mind is a collective mind, it thinks as a one mind spreading and sharing its synaptic thought processes between Queendoms right across subterranean Africa. Because the hyena had slyly embedded his spirit into this endless termitine mind – their ‘everywhere’ and their consequent awareness of all bush goings-on had unavoidably become his for his own perverse machinations. By the same willed intent, he would then coalesce his virtual spirit-being out of the termite world and back into his physical reality: to resurface wherever he felt his real presence was needed – or not needed, as in the case of the lion.

And with that, the old diviner returned to his tobacco pouch, leaving me to digest his awesome words.

What could have been a tedious journey home, flew by. The long edges of evening shadows melted into a deep velvet of forest dark; there to be sown up for the night with thin threads of wood smoke from village charcoal burners along the roadside. Soon we would be back in Luanshya with its cheery electric light windows and warm tarmacadam roads. Once home I asked my father to offer the old diviner a beer and a lift home – which he graciously accepted; luckily the prig was in a hurry to get back and write his report. For me it was an unwilling quick bath with Dettol, a willing fish finger and tomato sauce sandwich, and bed. I did not really object.

Hyenas danced a sly shuffle on the silver screen of my fading consciousness. I knew that they had been there in the bush, they were everywhere, even in my bedroom, but in reality, you just couldn’t see them.

Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve The Land of The Tiger

Pristine forests, snaking rivers, marshy grasslands, steep cliffs and table top mounains creates an ecosystem that supports myriads of life forms. This creates a biodiversity that is worthy of being preserved in ever sinking space occupied by urban surroundings and the infrastructure development taking place at a rapid pace in India. Sal is the primary flora besides saaz, dhawa, beheda, harra, bel, jamun, palas, amaltas, tendu, tinsa, Indian ghost tree, garri, arjun, banyan, son pakad, peepul, pakri, wild mango, ber and many more. Bamboo is found on the slopes of the table top mountains and in the mixed forest zones.

For the green World Bandhavgarh is a jewel in the crown. It is home to one of the most endangered creature on Earth. The creature is without doubt the most beautiful or charismatic as well. It dwells in a complex surroundings absolutely at peace with oneself and thriving. Yes the species is locally thriving as a prime predator or tertiary carnivore. Being at top of the food chain it is the preserver of the ecosystem.

Humans lived here a long time back around two thousand years or more. The Gond tribes built a fort complex comprising of fort, courts, stables, caves, temples, and the zoomorphic idols of Lord Vishnu kept them spiritually connected to the creator. The last Maharajah ruled over the fort before deserting it for the better pastures at Rewa a township in Madhya Pradesh or Central India.

The Maharajah now is the tiger as it rules over this esoteric kingdom of animals and birds. There are plenty of birds, reptiles, insects and microorganisms that thrive here in wild abundance. This microcosm of life is a fragile web that support each other and the humans too.

The most sought after animal is the tiger and this preservation unit is meant to increase ts severely depleted population in India. The unit has seen remarkable success with numbers increasing every year. This breeding ground of big cats has been provided with intense protection and is subject to conservation measures some of which are natural while some depend upon human intervention.

A tiger conservation unit indirectly benefits all life forms and so is the case with Bandhavgarh. The population of herbivores like deer, antelopes, and primates which constitute the main prey of the big cats has substantially increased in the park. The park is home to more that two hundred fifty species of birds and about twenty plus species of reptiles or snakes. Python, cobra, krait, vipers, rat snake, tree snakes, racers, trinket snakes and keelbacks are often seen during the day.

Among the wild animals Nilgai, chinkara, barking deer, chital, sambar, langur, wild boars and bison are seen during the safaris. The park is divided into core area and the outer area called buffer. The core is the best breeding ground although the wild animals have spread to the buffer as well.

Popular for tourism Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve is ideal for photography. Many filmmakers and wildlife enthusiasts visit the reserve. But the largest number of visitors are the holiday makers.

A Guide to Biking and Trail Running for Women

Ask any woman biker about what she adores about her activity, and she’s expected to go on explaining its numerous gifts – the sense of liberty, the feeling of exploring someone’s limits and being tougher, the gorgeous vista, the delight of endorphins, the acquaintances and community she has met through biking on carbon wheel set and trail running. They get the identical questions repeatedly: How will I identify where I am going? Is it secure? What about wild animals or snakes? What if I collapse? The list goes on. And yet, at first, many women have no reservations about biking and trail running.

These apprehensions are convincing, surely. But overcoming these can be a vast foundation of empowerment and, by doing so, will encourage you into the convivial arms of the utmost outdoor pursuits on this earth. Experts genuinely consider that any individual’s life can be better by cultivating a biking and trail-running routine. Just find your clan. Not all cities are as lucky to have something like Women on the Trails curriculum, but perform a little investigation in your town to notice if any beginner trail-running sessions exist. The majority of trail runners shall inform you you’ll be pushed to locate a more hospitable group of people.

If no groups are found, assemble some like-minded acquaintances, or a reliable buddy, and start your own casual adventure faction. Participating in a neighborhood trail race on your carbon road bike wheels is also a grand way to get together with other runners and bikers. It’s the ideal occasion to be familiar with trail running in a completely supported situation, inclusive of directional signs to make sure you are never gone astray, support stations to make sure you won’t run out of provisions or water, and gracious companionship along the way to make sure you won’t be by yourself.

Understand perils (or lack thereof!) and chart everything accordingly. In comparison to numerous activities we might employ repeatedly, driving a vehicle, whereas trail running and biking are reasonably low-risk activities. Certainly, it is also not devoid of any risks. Depending on the environs, think of the chances of wildlife encounters, injuring an ankle in the country, running out of food or water, getting lost, needing to stay alive for a night out in the wilds, lacking good equipment like carbon fiber bike parts, getting caught above the tree line in a heavy downpour. Thus, plan accordingly.

Safety Tips for Rescuing Whales

The past few years have seen an increase in mass whale stranding with New Zealand having the highest rates in the world. Stranding whether of an individual animal or mass stranding can be as a result of old age, sickness, injury, navigational error or social bonding.

Most of the stranding happen in remote and unpopulated areas and go unreported. However, there are many success stories involving rescue of stranded whales. These rescue interventions represent a lot of a serious risk to both the animal and the public.

Here are some safety tips to consider when rescuing stranded whales:

1. Inspect the stranded animal from a safe distance to establish whether it is in distress, pain or discomfort. It is important to keep people and dog at a safe distance to avoid stressing the animal further.

2. Call an expert for help. Many countries have wildlife officers who are trained on how to handle stranding emergencies who work closely with qualified veterinary officers. People such as the local marine mammal stranding network or wildlife staff or the police would be able to help

3. When reporting the stranded animal, be sure to inform the officer of any distress and describe what it would be. Inform them of any injuries, strange physical activities or sounds. Remember to give the exact physical location to make it easier for the rescue team to locate you.

4. Maintain a safe distance from the animal. The animal may seem helpless but it is still a wild animal which may harm you instinctively to protect itself. A whale is a powerful animal which can cause serious injury to people should they roll in the water. In addition, the stressed animal may thrash its tail putting you at risk of getting injured.

5. Avoid any form of contact with the animal as whales may carry many zoonotic diseases. But, some reason if you touch the whale for, make sure that you wash your hands thoroughly.

6. It is important not to attempt to push the whale back to the water without adequate assistance. This might result to re-stranding which might lead to severe stress, injury, and death.

7. For the safety of the animal, make sure that the blow hole at the top of its head through which the whale breaths is not blocked or underwater. With adequate assistance, you may gently roll the whale, which might be lying on its side, onto their belly to make sure that the blowhole is facing upwards.

8. It is advisable to constantly pour buckets of water onto the whale skin all the while keeping clear of the blowhole. This helps to keep their skin wet and cool as plans are being made to return the stranded animal to the water.

9. If you have access to water-soaked burlap bags you can cover the whale’s skin to protect the skin form drying and shield it from sunburn. Be careful not to cover the blowhole and fins.

10. Stay with the whale until the rescue team arrives. They might need information about what happened at the scene before their arrival.

The purpose of aiding stranded whales is to get it back into the water. You should follow the instructions of the experts, who have the necessary training to care for such animals. In some cases it may be possible to push the whale back in the water but you must be careful not to harm the animal.

Some Things You Need to Know About Scabies

General Description and Location

Scabies, or Sarcoptes scabiei, are also commonly known as itch mites. Itch mites are tiny anthropoids that burrow into the skin of humans and animals. They are as equally parasitic to wild animals as domesticated ones. While different species of itch mites may be inclined to inhabit certain areas, they all tend to produce the same disturbing symptoms.

Typically, a scabies infection starts as soon as female mite comes into contact with a suitable host. At that point, the female will attach to the host with her teeth, as well as special scissor-like apparatus on the front legs. From there, the female will continue to burrow under the skin, lay eggs, and feed on blood from the host. Once the eggs hatch, they larvae will continue to spread out under the skin. In most cases, eggs hatch in 3 – 10 days, and then live for another 3 – 4 weeks.

Problems for Humans and Animals

When a human or animal becomes infested with scabies, the condition is often referred to as mange. Since Scabies cause severe itching at night, many people scratch their skin to the point where it does serious damage. At that point, it becomes fairly easy for bacterial and fungal infections to set in. Needless to say, this can complicate recovery, as well as lead to more misery.

Interestingly enough, it is estimated that at least 2% of the people in Great Britain have scabies. For the most part, these infestations start in the wrists and hands. No matter where you live in the world, it is best to avoid skin-to-skin contact with these surfaces in order to avoid attracting scabies.

Most animals with fur will lose all of their hair in the infected region, as well as experience intense itching and redness. In many cases, chickens and other domestic fowls will also develop “scaly legs” when infested with itch mites. Today, pigs are often the most common carriers of itch mites. Even though the life cycle for this particular parasite is fairly short, it can cause serious damage when it spreads throughout a herd of animals.

Natural Solutions

As a general rule of thumb, the best cure for scabies is avoidance. Unfortunately, these parasites are highly contagious even before an outbreak is apparent in any given person. If you become infested with scabies, you should do what you can to make sure that every person you have had physical contact with also gets treatment. Even though scabies is not considered a disease caused by poor hygiene, you will be well served by washing all of your garments and bedding on the “hot” cycle. Since itch mites cannot live more than 48 hours without a host, you will need to store items for at least that long after washing. It is also very important to shampoo carpets and any other area where the mites may burrow for warmth until a suitable host comes along.

Many people looking for a home remedy for scabies rely on turmeric and neem oil. As with other insecticides, neem oil interferes with the estrogen receptors in target organisms. In order to use this particular remedy, you will need to bathe in it, and add some oats to the mix. Turmeric can also be added to the bath for enhancement. If this method does not work, you can ask your doctor for a cream or ointment that contains permethrin.

Recent Outbreaks

Scabies outbreaks can occur in any facility where people are in close contact with each other. In the United States alone, there are currently outbreaks in various nursing homes and schools in Virginia, Massachusetts, and Illinois. Additional outbreaks are expected throughout the country.

Wild Autofellatio Isn’t Just Something in the Animal Kingdom – Your Autofellatio Guide to Reasoning

When people think of “wild autofellatio” or “autofellatio in the wild,” we tend to have our minds wondering about what “animals” actually do perform this act in the wild.

What actually lives in the wild? Well, we did at one time. Our ancestors have shown that we all lived in the “wild.” Actually, some of us still do.

Some of us also seem to forget that we are, indeed, animals, too. Maybe because most of us no longer live like “wildlife.” But then, too, a lot of our animal friends live with us. Dogs, birds, cats, and the like.

People can perform most self-love acts if they train themselves in the proper methodology. The problem is that since “Man” has become overly domesticated, just like our pets, most of us have lost the ability to perform such things.

Part of this is because we have tended to put on extra weight because of our domestication. Another factor is that we sit for too long of periods of time that are bodies weren’t designed or built for. This alters the normal “posture” of our bodies. When posture is affected in this way, it compromises the ability for the spine and the joints to work properly.

We are also less physically active. We let machines do our work for us and we are now even letting machines think for us. We walk and run on hard surfaces that our feet, legs, and pelvises were not designed for. We wear high heels which shortens our calves and achilles’ tendons and affects the entire rest of our bodies.

We eat refined and processed food that inhibits our body to function properly. It does so by not giving the body the natural foods we were designed to ingest. Ever look at a bag of white flour? It’s enriched, bleached, and refined. Its actual food value is next to nothing. Studies show that rats fed enriched flour died faster than rats that were not fed enriched flour. Now, that’s something to think about the next time you eat a piece of bread.

If you offer a gorilla a banana that grew naturally and ripened on its own with your left hand. Then offered him a banana, with your right hand, that was picked before it ripened, and was ripened artificially in a methane chamber, what happens?

He will ALWAYS take the natural banana first, even if it is smaller. Think about that next time you purchase some fruit.

Humans are so out-of-touch with nature, it’s criminal. Even gorillas are smarter than us.

What other things affect our ability to perform autofellatio? How about stress? Sure, stress is a huge factor in our naturally-gifted ability toward autosexuality. Mental stress, that is. Stress manifests itself in tension and knotting up of our muscles and ligaments. This reduces are functionability. Our joints are then put under intense and unfortunate strain which hampers their abilities to function properly and allow us proper mobility.

Physical stress should be noted, too. Find a postal carrier that’s been delivering mail, by foot, for the last twenty years. Examine their posture and physical alignment. This is what happens if you carry a mail sack on just one shoulder for such a long time.

How about lifting improperly? Slouching in a chair? Weak abdominal muscles… The list is endless.

Is it so hard to wonder why more people don’t perform autocunnilingus or autofellatio these days?

However, today, the people who can perform such acts are considered “perverse.”

That’s a pretty bleak blanket to cast over a group of animals who would, in most cases, be able to perform such feats, if they just lived more natural lives.

That would be all of us.

African Safari Tour

African safari holidays are an opportunity to view wild animals and breathtaking landscape in the continent. Tourists visit Africa so that they will experience a close encounter with the Big Five, namely the buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion, and rhinoceros. It is a rare opportunity to observe these animals in their natural environment.

Visiting a continent with various game reserves, national parks, protected wildlife, and spectacular coastline is an exciting experience. Here is the list of suggested safari destinations in Africa:

• Amboseli National Park in Kenya

It is one of the tourist destinations which presents the best safari and scenic views. You will admire the wonderful sight of Mount Kilimanjaro. This majestic mountain rises to about 5,900 meters. It is the stunning background of the huge elephant population wandering in the reserve.

• Bwindi Forest Reserve in Uganda

This is a World Heritage site and the habitat of mountain gorillas and chimpanzees. The area features spectacular landscape, steep valleys, and impressive waterfalls. It is also a home to a variety of birds such as the rare African Green Broadbill.

• Chobe National Park in Botswana

This park is situated in the Okavango Delta. The ideal season to visit the park is during the dry and the cool winter months of April to October. It is also the best time to see large herds of buffalo, eland, giraffe, and zebra assemble in the surrounding area of Savuti marsh. You can reach the park by car, making it a more affordable destination than the other parks in Botswana. In addition, it provides different types of accommodation to tourists.
