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. The history of this Game Reserve dates back to the year 1898 when the then president of the Transvaal Republic declared the portion of space that is there between the two rivers, the Sabie River and the Crocodile River to be a Game Reserve to help it offer a lace for the breeding of the wild to replenish dwindling stocks of wildlife out of hunting and t sustain both. 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. A pound was the fee charged to motorists for the entrance fees to the park.
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. You will find a number of the wild species, from the tree species, birds, mammals, birds, reptiles, fishes and the amphibians all in their wild numbers at the reserve. 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.
Surrounding the Kruger National Park are a number of smaller game reserves. Sabi Sands Private game reserve, situated in the Westside of the park in the Sabi Sand, is one of these private and smaller game reserves. There are four lodging facilities of first class rating at the Sabi Sands private game reserve and these are like the Selati Camp, the Earth Lodge, the Bush Lodge and the Little Bush Camp.
