Durban Big5 Day Safari

Big5 Durban Day Safari


Durban safari guide Paul collected our guests for a Big5 day safari from Durban.

This Big5 day safari in Hluhluwe was a real hummer.

With very little time to spend our 3 American guests decided on a day safari from Durban. We arrived at Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Big5 Game Reserve at around 9am and started with our safari drive.

The safari drive was very slow for the first half hour, then a female warthog with 3 babies crossed the road, while looking at her I noticed a Buffalo in the distance. We drove forward for a better vantage point only to come across 3 White Rhinos near the road.

With the Rhinos in the fore ground, the Buffalo further off we spotted an Elephant in the shade of a tree. Three of Africa’s big5 all in one spot.

We carried on our safari game drive, finding Impala, Zebra, Giraffe right next to the car and then I saw something in the grass.

A Large Male lion with a very dark mane, beautiful. As I’ve learnt over the years, always look around, I noticed another high up in the hills, on a big rock. One of my guest said “its Simba on Pride Rock” ha ha.

That Leopard still eluded us but it was a great day on safari.

Below are some pictures from this safari..
