About the Greater Kruger National Park:
The Greater Kruger National Park is a joint venture between the Kruger National Park and Associated Private Nature Reserves. Together they cover an area of more than 20 000 000 Ha, under their joint conservation.
The Kruger National Park is one of the largest game reserves in Africa. It is situated across the Limpopo and Mpumalanga Provinces of South Africa, and its borders stretch up to Zimbabwe in the north and Mozambique in the east. Back in 1898, it was known as a Government Wildlife Park. It later became the Sabi Game Reserve, and then the Kruger National Park in 1926.
Associated Private Nature Reserves is a conglomerate of privately owned nature reserves. It has over 20 members in its ranks including the Timbavati Reserve. In 1993, the fences between Associated Private Nature Reserves and the Kruger National Park were removed to encourage wildlife migration, and the Greater Kruger National Park was born.
