There is an overwhelming natural order at work, which functions best when unfettered by human interference, writes South African game ranger turned wildlife photographer and author Mitch Reardon.
It is, in many ways, the premise of this eloquent book, which offers insight into the long journey those managing the Kruger National Park have travelled since its establishment in 1898 and its proclamation as a national park in 1926. Perhaps most indicative of the vast changes in attitudes to how the park has been managed come through in the story of the wild dog, which, according to the Endangered Wildlife Trust, is Southern Africa’s most endangered carnivore and one of the most endangered carnivores in the world. There are about 2,500-5,750 left in Africa.
