I think that the administrators of Kruger National Park have done a good job of placing plaques with information near historical sites in the park. They give you a glimpse into the people who used to live, or work, in these parts in days gone by. It must have been a wonderful yet hard life.

The plaque marking the spot of Anna Ledeboer's grave is located on one of the loop roads off the S62 gravel road that run on the northern bank of the Letaba River near Letaba Camp. Anna's full name was Anna Maria Christina Ledeboer. Her maiden name was Bindemann. She died at age 55, possibly from a heart condition or malaria.

According to the plaque Anna Ledeboer was the second wife of ranger Leonard Henry Ledeboer. Leonard was an elephant hunter who became a park ranger in 1919.
