Durban Big5 Safari

We will enter one of iSimangaliso Wetland Park’s Western Shores main gates and begin our safari game drive in our closed vehicle. This safari park is home to the Big5. Your guide will help you track down the animals on your check list, using their intimate knowledge of the park. Lions are found in this safari park, however they are in the eastern side of the park. Bird lovers will feel like they are in paradise, there is an abundance of our feathered friends. Lunch will be a picnic at one of the picnic sites.

From the safari park, we move onto the St Lucia estuary for a boat cruise. The estuary is rich in wildlife. Hippo, crocodile and fish eagles can all be found in and alongside the estuary. Numerous animals use the estuary for drinking water and to cool down. If we are lucky, we may spot them as we slowly float past on our 2 hour cruise.

After a day full of adventure and hopefully plentiful animal sightings, we return to Durban, arriving back in the late afternoon/early evening.

We place tourist safety at the top of our priorities list. All areas visited and routes taken are considered with your safety in mind.
