Leaving Durban in the early morning, we make our way towards St Lucia’s iSimangaliso Wetland Park, for your Durban Big5 day safari. The drive to St Lucia is just over two hours from Durban city. iSimangaliso Wetland Park is a World Heritage Site. This is one of the most diverse eco systems in the world. A Big5 safari park, which makes its way down to the shores of the Indian ocean. iSimangaliso Wetland Park has an estuary that is home to hippo, crocodile, abundant bird life and numerous other animal species.

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.

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 eagle can all be found in and inside 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.
