Durban Big5 Day Safari Tour
Durban safari tour guide Paul collected a lovely church group for a great Durban Big5 day safari.
What a great day on safari in Hluhluwe!
We transferred our group of 18 guests from Durban to Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Game Reserve. Here we boarded open safari vehicles and enjoyed a 3 hour Big5 safari game drive through this amazing Big5 safari park.
Some of the Big5 sightings were really good with herds of Buffalo, Elephants in the river and plenty of White Rhinos.
The open safari game drive ended at Hilltop Camp where we enjoyed a big lunch and some cold beverages. Hilltop Camp has stunning views of the valley below, a must see when visiting Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Game Reserve.
After lunch I led the group through a forest trail looking for the rare Samango Monkey.
A final safari game drive on the way out we came across a Elephant Bull in Musth, he was quite relaxed and allowed us to pass.
A highlight of the safari was a pride of lions, 4 lionesses in a Marula tree, very close to the road. The Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Lions are known for their unusual habit of climbing trees.
At the gate we came across a Buffalo Bull taking a mud bath and 3 Elephants Browsing nearby.
Great sightings to end the Day!
