Interesting facts. We are fortunate to have such a large conservation area on our doorstep.

Hi Rob. Don’t know about the overseas guests, but we MacNicols in Randburg here in S.A. found your blog today very, very informative and interesting! Thank you very much! Wendy M

Hi Rob, I know that the sea level is rising and that if our dykes break we will loose some km2, but at the moment the Netherlands still has a surface over 40.000km2, so that is about twice the size of KNP. Thanks for writing this post. Kind regards,
Jos

Rob, great blog today, comparing the size of Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park and the size of Londolozi. Can’t wait til we return in 2020, it will be our 50th wedding anniversary🤗

Rob, really appreciate your putting this into a comprehensible perspective. Londolozi is like the perfect slice of private land for the animals to roam freely.

That really is fascinating. Thank you for putting all of that into perspective (literally!)

We agree with your hope that more land/habitat can be set aside for the future but enforcement of the boundaries is equally important. When mankind chooses to ignore boundaries, they become inconsequential.

What an interesting blog, filled with so many facts that we don’t think about when visiting. Prior to my next trip I’ll be in Timbavati Reserve so will get a different perspective. I’m so glad to know these reserves exist and hope man will continue to honor and protect these precious resources.

Rob,
This is excellent analysis. I am originally from INDIA and has been living in The United States for the last 20 years. So comparisons with Yellowstone, Yosemite etc. gives a good idea how big Kruger is. 4400 Sq. Km where you can observe Snow Leopards among other exotic species. There is also Gir only abode of the Asiatic Lion at 1400 Sq. Km. Thanks for the info.

Regards,
Hari
