Abstract: This study was aimed at examining the link between employee motivation, commitment, integrity and ethical conduct of rangers and how these influences work-related performance in the context of the Kruger National Park (KNP) in South Africa. The findings from descriptive research design comprising of 57 out of 70 randomly selected participants comprising of game rangers and some relevant departmental officials indicated that poor performance of rangers in the Kruger National Park was as a result of lack of application of effective employee motivational strategies. Adoption and implementation of the Maslow Hierarchy of Need was recommended as a possible innovative strategy to solve challenges associated with rangers violating their integrity and ethics regarding their work-related performance. The study made theoretical and practical contributions to the enhancement of employee performance strategies whereby motivation plays a significant role.
