Situated on the banks of the Sabie River on the lands of Chief Mhaule, Mkhuhlu is a thriving, fast-growing town just outside the Kruger National Park. Community projects abound in the numerous villages surrounding the town, while across the way, elephants and lions call into the night. Mkhuhlu is home to a vast pool of committed conservationists – the employees of the Kruger National Park.
Skukuza means "he who sweeps clean". It was the nickname of the park's first warden, Colonel James Stevenson-Hamilton. His sidekick was called Doispane – a derivation of Dustbin!
