Great experiences getting stuck. I remember when we got stuck. Twice. Luckily with swift action from the rangers and tracker to get us out of the “sticky” situation they did not get the dreaded pink pouch.

Fantastic article! I actually have pictures and video evidence of Mr. Powers getting stuck in the Sand River last month while viewing the Tsalala Breakaway pride. Let me know if anyone is interested in seeing them 🙂

One of the questions I ask, and a big tick in the box for selecting a lodge is whether they favour Land Cruisers or Defenders. I just wish they would hurry up and build the replacement instead of those Chelsea Tractors

Funny! We have been stuck many times on safari! It is an experience! ?

Some of the best memories I have in the bush are from times stuck in sand, mud or water. In February in search of an elusive leopard, we drove into a ditch- the rescue team had to come to our rescue and the leopard never showed her face. Oh well, next!!

Looks like fun but a very male affair. Where are all the ‘girl guides’?

Shawn Cheshire

This definitely made me laugh out loud. Does that mean you’ve worn the pink pouch Mr Shaun??

This is an hilarious post, thanks for sharing Shaun. I agree that sometimes it is just worth getting stuck to get an incredible image.

Hail to the “Pink Pouch”! Sometimes getting stuck can be some of the most fun of times on safari! Nick really getting stuck – never! 😉

Is there a collective noun for a group of Rangers standing in the Sand River or anywhere else for that matter? A “ditch” of Rangers perhaps………….!
