    Thank GOD there are no fatalities reported. A speedy recovery to all those injured. Not good at all for a 9 month old baby to endure pain.

    Was this a former taxi-driver perhaps.......?

    I say that the department of transport should make it compulsary for all public transport drivers to complete an advanced driving course. Peoples lives are at stake.

    Is there not a very low 'speed limit' in game reserves - private or otherwise. Another 'feather in the cap' for South African tourism....
