At Skukuza there is a large plaque with three faces. We know Paul Ktuger but who are the other two?

A very warm welcome to you, Peter.Greenlagh :D

Good question. I am sure that many people wonder about that.

The other 2 are James Stevenson Hamilton, first warden of Kruger and Piet Grobler, minister of lands at that time. (1926)

Without the dedication and doggedness of James Stevenson Hamilton, Kruger would not be. Piet Grobler was also sold by the vision of a national park. He played a pivotal role in the political negotiations.

In James Stevenson Hamilton's book, "South African Eden", it is clear that Kruger's future hung in the balance many, many times.
