The first Europeans to explore the region were the Dutch in 1725. In 1845, João Albasini, an 18-year-old Italian, was the first European to settle near what is now called Pretoriuskop. Gold was found in 1873 at Pilgrim’s Rest and in 1881 at Barberton creating a gold rush, despite lions, crocodiles and malaria. At this time begins the decline of animal fauna east of the Transvaal.

In 1898, the Sabie Game Reserve was created. After the Second Boer War in 1902, Major James Stevenson-Hamilton was appointed as the first guardian of the reserve. A few months later, the reserve expanded, augmented by areas between the Sabie River and the Olifant River. In 1903, the northern zone was established as a protected area against hunters under the name of Singwitsi Game Reserve including a triangle of land between the rivers Luvuvhu and Limpopo where the borders of Mozambique, South Africa and Southern Rhodesia meet (future Zimbabwe). To protect the region’s wildlife, Kruger National Park was created in 1926 and bears the name of Paul Kruger, former President of South Africa.

In 1935, more than 26,000 people visited the park (around one million in the 2000s). Lions being the main attraction of the park, Stevenson-Hamilton stopped predator hunting. In the 1960s, artificial ponds were created for wildlife. In 1991 Robbie Robinson became the new chief executive of the South African National Parks Board and was responsible for ensuring the transition of the park into the newly liberated apartheid South Africa. He had the fences that demarcated the park of the private reserves which adjoined it, cut down, allowing the free circulation of the animal fauna.
