For the most part these wildlife and ecologically sensitive areas are open to the Kruger National Park (KNP) with no fences separating them.

The co-operation between the operations of the Founding Members, GKEPF and KNP is essential for the effective combatting of wildlife crime.

GKEPF, along with the participating reserves, have established a number of strategic partnerships. These alliance shares one common interest – to protect and preserve vulnerable and threatened wildlife species.
