is there an awards category for best travel advisory?

In case you're thinking of shooting your next spot in Mozambique, here's a handy warning from the Ministry of Fish and Wildlife there--
Due to the rising frequency of human-lion encounters... we advise the outdoorsman to wear little noisy bells on clothing so as to give advanced warning to any lions that might be close by so you don't take them by surprise.

We also advise anyone using the out-of-doors to carry Pepper Spray with him or her in case of an encounter with a lion.

Outdoorsmen should also be on the watch for fresh lion activity, and be able to tell the difference between lion cub shit and big lion shit. Lion cub shit is smaller and contains lots of berries and dassie fur. Big lion shit has bells in it, and smells like pepper.

Enjoy your stay in MOZAMBIQUE
