Kruger National Park – Questions & Answers is a compilation of the questions most frequently asked by visitors to the Park, and their answers, given by a seasoned game park official. This new edition has been expanded, and reflects management decisions and changes that have occurred since the last edition appeared in 1992. It is packed with information on topics ranging from animals and their behavior, ecology and poaching, to accommodation, activities, history of place names, safety, and code of conduct.

The text is easy-to-read, combining leisure and education, making it a highly entertaining companion in the vehicle. Species sections are enlivened by simple illustrations, and two maps illustrate the ecozones and layout of the Park. This book is ideal for both guides and visitors to the Kruger National Park.

About The Author

The late P.F. FOURIE was Chief Information Officer in the Kruger National Park from 1969 to 1977. During this time he met thousands of people from all over the world whose myriad questions formed the basis of this book.


"Wow! What a fascinating book! It truly is everything you could ever think to ask or want to know about Kruger, the largest national park in South Africa and one of the largest managed national parks/protected areas in the world. Not only a treasure to South Africans, the park is also a fascination and on the Bucket List for most travelers of the world, with about 1.5 million visitors annually. Of course the native (and exotic to the rest of us) animals are what everyone wants to see and know about, and this is the book with all the answers! There are detailed black and white drawings of each animal followed by questions about the habitat, food, habits, mating, etc. of that animal. The questions are answered in simple, straight-forward words that will satisfy even the most curious of youngsters and their elders. The book is not only good for those going to Kruger National Park, but also for anyone taking a child to a zoo and for teachers. These are real answers to everything anyone could ever think to ask about an African animal! Very well done and easy to read."
