The Kruger to Canyons Biosphere Region NPC (K2C) was established in 2011 to act as the vehicle for coordinating the implementation of Biosphere activities. K2C is also registered as a Public Benefit Organisation (PBO).
The K2C NPC works towards three strategic objectives that align with the UNESCO Man and Biosphere (MaB) strategy:
SO 1: To enhance the conservation of biodiversity and cultural heritage, maintain ecosystem services and foster the sustainable and equitable use of natural resources through the implementation of projects.
SO 2: To explore, develop, support, and study thriving sustainable societies, economies, and human settlements respecting the web of life on which they depend.
SO 3: To promote the understanding of the impact of environmental changes, including climate change, and develop and support mitigation and adaptation actions.
Sapmok was created by Werner Winterboer in 2015. Werner combined all the things he loved and his ideal picture of life to create the style of Sapmok. Even though the company started in 2015, Sapmok only started to trade in February 2017. It took almost 2 years to create and design the brand before we sold our first pair of shoes. The name of the brand comes from the word Kompas (compass in Afrikaans) written backwards. As a kid, Werner was in a bende (a gang) with Piet Joubert and JG de Swardt and their bende cryptology was to write everything backwards, so that’s how he decided on Sapmok.

Elephant Herd tour safaris
Dreaming of Africa and your Kruger National Park Safari? Lying in the heart of the Lowveld is a wildlife sanctuary like no other, its atmosphere so unique that it allows those who enter its vastness to immerse themselves in the unpredictability and endless wilderness that is the true quality of Africa. The largest game reserve in South Africa, the Kruger National Park is larger than Israel. Nearly 2 million hectares of land that stretches for 352 kilometres (20 000 square kilometres) from north to south along the Mozambique border, is given over to an almost indescribable wildlife experience. Certainly it ranks with the best in Africa and is the flagship of the country’s national parks – rated as the ultimate safari experience.
