What is the goal of KrugerInfo?

How it all started

The idea behind the KrugerInfo website started out as a project to do a photographic record of all known points of interest in the Kruger Park. The creator of the site, Andrew van Ginkel, set upon a mission to take photos of each of these points of interest primarlily as a way to get to know the park. Over the last few years I have visited the park for a month each year and tried to travel as many of the roads accessible to the public as I can. On this journey I have taken photos of all these places, and this lead to me deciding to share these photos, so that others might get a sense of the "magic" of the Kruger. It has been an interesting exercise. By having to make a point of going to each place I saw parts of the park one often tends to not go to, not because they are not worth going to, but because they tend to be off the main routes one tends to take.

I hope you enjoy the website, and that it inspires you to come to the Kruger and see the park for yourself.

The history of the park

As I explored the park, the historical side of the park started to become an interest. I would often think "I wonder who lived here years back", or "I wonder how the park came about". As part of the exploration process I am also researching the history of the park, and that information I shall start to put up at a later stage.
