Kruger National Park

News: Nearly half of the Kruger National park will be burnt in controlled fires to protect the ecosystem after floods and heavy rains this season.

• Kruger National Park is a South African National Park and one of the largest game reserves in Africa.
• Kruger National Park is home to a rich diversity of wildlife, including the Big Five (lion, leopard, rhino, elephant, and buffalo), as well as giraffes, zebras, wildebeests, impalas, and numerous birds.
• The park has a generally flat terrain with low ranges of hills and six perennial rivers that cross it.
• The park has one of the most firedependent systems and some plant species rely on and are shaped by the regular burning of the veld.
• The park also joined with Mozambique’s Limpopo Park and Zimbabwe’s Gonarezhou National Park to form the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park, the largest game park in Africa, in 2002.

Which are the important rivers that flow through Kruger NP?
• The crocodile river, The Sabie River, The Letaba river, The Olifants river, The Luvuvhu river and the Limpopo river.
• Out of the above rivers, The crocodile river, The Sabie river join an another river named Komati river (which flows into the Indian ocean).
• The Limpopo River, which forms the northern boundary of the park and is one of the largest rivers in Africa. It flows through Botswana, Zimbabwe and Mozambique before reaching the Indian Ocean.
Note – Any River that drains into Indian ocean is important to be remembered from Prelims perspective!
