Kruger2canyon News

Welcome to the exciting world of the Kruger2Canyon News.

We are a community newspaper based in Hoedspruit, South Africa, that has its bias towards wildlife and conservation. We aim to have local, original, and relevant content that is both thought provoking and educational. We also strive to maintain a high standard of journalism.

We are in the centre of the UNESCO officially ratified, Kruger to Canyons Biosphere. Hoedspruit is generally considered to be the ‘safari capital’ of South Africa, within close proximity to the renowned and famous Kruger National Park, the Blyde River Canyon, the Timbavati, Klaserie and many other private game farms and reserves. Some of Africa’s most luxurious game lodges are also close by.

We invite you to read our publication, access previous editions, provide feedback should you wish, and hopefully we will get you to subscribe. We publish monthly, and generally release our editions on the last Friday of every month.

We hope you enjoy the read and we look forward to welcoming you to Hoedspruit, our community, and our world of wildlife and conservation.

Spotlight – Megan Smith from The Great Outdoors

Megan was fortunate enough to be born into a family that was ‘bush mad’. Parents Mike and Glen Heramb ensured that the experience for their children was not the run-of-the-mill Kruger Park holiday every year. Instead, they would pack up their trusted Landrover and head out into the deepest parts of Botswana and Zimbabwe, days from all civilization, and expose their children to the ‘real’ African experience.

The Tshemba Foundation: Enhancing general Healthcare to the Acornhoek area

In the heart of Mpumalanga province, South Africa, lies the town of Acornhoek. This is a bustling cauldron of humanity – some may even say an overflowing cauldron. Many of the million or so residents of the town and surrounding areas are unemployed and due to a floundering, albeit committed public health care service, they have limited access to quality and essential healthcare. This is exacerbated by a rough estimate that 84% of South Africans depend on public healthcare, only 30% of doctors work in public healthcare and of that only 12% work in rural areas! This is where the Tshemba Foundation steps in, acting as a vital lifeline for historically disadvantaged communities in conjunction with the Department of Health.
