We will see some bit on the birth and nurture of this great destination for Safari destination-the Kruger National Park. History has it that South Africa was under colony and then it was known as the Transvaal Republic. Paul Kruger, who was the president of the colony, in the year 1898 declared that the area between the Crocodile and the Sabie Rivers as the Sabie Game Reserve and this was intended to let it be an area where the wild would breed and as such replenish stocks, for hunting by humans. After the conflict which saw the Boers and the Anglos pitted at odds that lasted 4 years, the Britons forcibly removed the local inhabitants from the area and it was again proclaimed by the Britons as well as a reserve. The proclamation of the National Parks Act in the year 1926, May the 31ST led to the formation of the Kruger National Park. The first game drive in the park was seen in 1927 when the first three cars so their way into the Park. Entarnce fees to the park in those days were one pound.
There is a sure wide variety of species of the wild life in this game reserve with such a rich history, stretching an area of close to 20,000km2. Whatever kind of wild life you will wish to have sight of, you will quite find them at the Kruger National Park starting from the fishes, reptiles, amphibians, mammals, birds and trees species. Out of all these species, a majority of the tourists on safari to the Kruger National Park are mostly attracted to the park by the Big Five of well knowing-the Leopard, Lion, Elephant, Cape Buffaloes and the Rhinos.
