Kruger National Park

The park was first proclaimed by president of the republic – Paul Kruger in 1898 as the Sabie Game Reserve. President Paul Kruger first proposed the need to protect the animals of the area in 1884.

 

Only in 1927 did they start planning and building sand roads, at this stage the only form of transport was rail, ox wagons and donkeys.  The tarring of road surfaces in the Kruger Park had to wait until 1965.  Today there are more than 850 km (531miles) of tarred roads in the park, besides 1 444 km (900 miles) gravel roads and more than 4 200 km (2630 miles) of fire breaks. Pick nick spots was not fenced and people had to build a camp.
