The Kruger National Park is synonymous with wildlife and nature conservation in southern Africa, and this book, its pages graced by the photographs of the famous Van den Berg family, celebrates Kruger as it deserves to be celebrated. It’s also deeply informative, detailing many of the challenges facing the Parks and how dedicated conservationism has triumphed and overcome so many.
An excellent guide for fans and visitors to the Park alike, with its many resources and wealth of information.
The concise, yet informative, text reflects how, when and where it all began and how the mega-park evolved over time. It paints a word picture of this world-renowned conservation area and icon of South Africa. In the second section of the book, an overview in the form of an identification guide gives brief information about the wildlife that visitors can expect to see on game drives in the park. Colloquially known simply as 'Kruger', the iconic park - and its immediate surrounds - is the most visited and renowned wildlife conservation area in southern Africa. This area includes the world-renowned Kruger National Park, several privately owned game reserves adjoining the national park, as well as a contractual park. Initiated by the Peace Parks Foundation, the park also forms part of the massive Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park, which straddles international borders and includes wildlife reserves in both Zimbabwe and Mozambique.
