Keeping Up with the Kruger

The Greater Kruger Region, an immense expanse of vast savannah plains and breath-taking river gorges, is the spectacular setting for the Kruger – one of the largest national parks in the world and a major tourist attraction. The area welcomes thousands of guests from around the globe every year and creates employment for close to 4,000 staff. From luxury camps to rugged hiking trails, game captures to specialised research projects, anti-poacher patrols to essential wildlife health checks, a day in the Kruger is never dull.

Across the series we meet the park’s rangers, doctors, research teams, conservation units and protection services, documenting everyone’s day-to-day adventures. Whether it’s treating animals for injuries, tracking rhino poachers, conserving the park’s pristine habitat, treating guests to once-in-a-lifetime animal encounters or operating vital local outreach programmes – this is the story of the daily lives of the staff that keep this vast park running, discovering the tremendous effort it takes to make the Kruger the park it is today.
