we saw paths ...hardly use ones...with a sign saying no entry or such
we were told these were the access roads used by the filming people to do the wildlife programmes
they are there for years on end and dont want us ruining a shot with a half dozen jeeps and those big open trucks disturbing a hard to repeat shot
as i understand and if you watched the lion diaries you wouldnt see anyone except the film crew jeeps in shot
