The Place and The People
Since the end of Apartheid in 1994, South Africa has been on the long road of peaceful progress. The success of the 2010 World Cup was a milestone in recent history and a manifestation of the power of the human spirit to triumph the past. Today, the country boasts friendly people and breathtaking wildlife.
The Kruger National Park is the largest animal reserve in the country – but its animals are facing many different threats. Rhinos are being poached for their horns, lions are suffering from Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), and leopards are being hunted by farmers.
