Mountain Zebra National Park was proclaimed in 1937, and saved these animals from extinction. Currently their population stands at 300. Other mammals found in MZNP include Cape buffalo, black rhino, eland, black wildebeest, red hartebeest and gemsbok, while mountain reedbuck and grey rhebok frequent the higher areas. Caracal occupies the niche of primary predator.

Rabelais Dam (and borehole) - in Kruger - is named after the original farm on which it was situated.

Dwarf Mongoose is another mongoose species commonly encountered in the Kruger Park, although they are more prominently represented in the western half

Kruger National Park is in my honest opinion the starship of Sanparks.
