How does one not know nor remember where they took a photograph?

If I forget to manually note down their location, how am I meant to remember where shots like these were taken years after they were shot?

Bear in mind that on the holiday where those were taken, I went walking through a whole series of different wildlife reserves and nature trails. The vast majority of the pictures taken focus on the wildlife itself, without showing enough of the surrounding landscape to have much hope of identifying exactly where I was. This is a problem because the wildlife photography group I belong to requires that all photographs submitted be labelled with the location where they were taken.

People who dismiss the GPS as useless should consider that not everyone uses the camera in the same way, takes the same kind of photos, or has the same requirements.
