Fauna and Flora

The Mooiplaas Ranger Section area that Tsendze falls in is known for its very large buffalo herds and many elephant bulls.

The area has been and still is, home to large tuskers and some of the more well known ones, now unfortunately dead and gone, were 'Nshawu', 'Shilowa', Mabarule' and 'Alexander'.

With its abundance of huge trees in the campsite TRC offers great birding opportunities right in camp and the surrounding area offers an interesting list of birds previously recorded.

Did You Know?

  • The park was first proclaimed in 1898 as the Sabie Game Reserve by the then president of the Transvaal Republic, Paul Kruger. He first proposed the need to protect the animals of the Lowveld in 1884, but his revolutionary vision took another 12 years to be realised when the area between the Sabie and Crocodile Rivers was set aside for restricted hunting.
