The reser vation's 8,000 square miles include animals of many species from elephants down, all living in the natural habitat. Gnus, orwildebeest, areparticularly numerous, although their horned, weather-bleached skulls are often found, testifying that the lion has crossed their path. The park was named forPaul Kruger, four times president of the former Transvaal Republic.
