It is situated on the southern banks of the Sabie River in Mpumalanga Province. The name "Skukuza" was given by the local Tsonga people as a nickname for James Stevenson-Hamilton. It could be translated as 'to sweep', as Stevenson-Hamilton was perceived as to sweep the land clean of poachers and other criminals operating in the area. Skukuza was a proud home of the Tsonga people until 1905, when the Colonial Government evicted them and resettled them in villages around Hazyview, where there was already a large concentration of Tsonga people.Wikipedia
