Skukuza is the administrative headquarters and main camp of the Kruger National Park, it is situated on the southern banks of the Sabie River in Mpumalanga Province. Skukuza was given by the local Tsonga people as a nickname for James Stevenson-Hamilton. It could be translated as 'to sweep', as Stevenson-Hamilton swept the Tsonga out of their lands. Skukuza is the natural home of the Tsonga people and they have lived here peacefully with Africa's Big five for generations until Paul Kruger evicted them from their ancestral land when the Afrikaner colonised this part of the lowveld.
