Kruger National Park - Review
The Kruger National Park is a huge national park of South Africa which is also designated as a national game reserve. The Kruger Park was initially built for the purpose of restricting the hunting habitats and thus to preserve the wildlife and restore the flourish of the endangered species of animals. The park features an extensive vegetation of specific varieties of plant life. The varieties include the red willows known as the Combretum Apiculatum or the red bush-willow veld, and the species of Acacia and Marula trees.
The red bush willows occupy the largest coverage of the Park, along with the shrubs of mopane veld. Among the wildlife, the Park houses an exceptional 517 species of birds. The majority of 253 species are native birds, along with about 117 migratory species and the remaining are the varieties of international species.
The famous six species of these birds are the Lapped-faced Vulture, Saddle-billed Stork, Martial Eagle, Kori Bustard, the Ground Hornbill, and the Pel’s Fishing Owl. The Park has about 30 breeding centres reserved for the Saddle billed Storks.
Among the reptile habitat, the Park houses a range of 114 different species and varieties of national as well as international reptiles, which especially features the keeping of the black mamba.
In order to safeguard the lives of the freely roaming wildlife within the park and also to protect the communal harmony and security of the animals, the Kruger Park has long introduced more than 650 forest security teams and anti poaching groups, known as the SANParks Game rangers. The security is further enhanced with the introduction of unmanned mini-crafts for the surveillance of the adjoining regions of the park.
