The Greater Kruger has lost Anton Mzimba, an exceptional leader, and a man who paid the ultimate sacrifice for his decades-long service in conservation and his fight for the protection of our wildlife.

GKEPF extends our deepest condolences to Anton’s immediate family, his team members and friends at Timbavati Private Nature Reserve.

Together, united we celebrated Anton’s life on World Ranger Day 31 July 2022 and the lives of all our rangers who dedicate their lives to protecting wildlife. Those who have lost their lives, those who continue the fight, and those who are joining hands for the greater good. 

The Timbavati’s tribute to Anton can be read here and the video from the celebration of his life and the lives of all Rangers around the world can be seen on the Timbavati Facebook page.
