About this title


A Cameo from the Past describes the long and sometimes challenging history of this iconic reserve in detail. The book looks at the events that led to the proclamation of the original Sabie Reserve in 1898 – one of the first conservation areas in the old Zuid-Afrikaansche Republiek. After the Anglo-Boer War, Colonel James Stevenson-Hamilton was tasked with running both the Sabie Reserve and the Shingwedzi Reserve (proclaimed in 1904). Stevenson-Hamilton, along with his small, yet dedicated, corps of rangers, protected and developed the reserve, and eventually, in 1926, the Kruger National Park was proclaimed – the biggest national park in South Africa. The author, supported by a team of experts, has lived and breathed the environment he writes about. Fascinating history in an unparalleled location.

About the Author:

Dr. TOL PIENAAR became the Head of the Kruger National Park in 1978 and 1987 he was promoted to Chief Director of South African National Parks. Pienaar achieved his PhD at 23 and worked under the legendary Raymond Dart before becoming a ranger in the Kruger Park. Legend has it that Rocco Knobel, then Chief of Parks, told Pienaar he was over qualified for the job of a game ranger. Pienaar got up, stuffed his PhD into his shirt and said: “Will you now appoint me?” Early in his career he survived a lion attack. He died in February 2011, shortly after overseeing the final touches of this manuscript.
