Hluhluwe Umfolozi Game reserve and St Lucia Tour 10-12 April 2012 - Tim Brown Tours

Departing from Durban we made our way to the game reserve where we had some immediate lucky with some Giraffe and Zebra near to the gate and 3 Female Warthogs Which (Hue) Loved!

From then on it became Warthog Paradise as we averaged 5 or 6 Warthogs per day.

After reaching camp and settling in to a lunch I showed my clients to there room and had a quick rest before the evening game drive in the open vehicle where they saw 2 Lions!

This was great for me as the day is more difficult for Lions sleep and the grass was getting Longer…

That evening after a big dinner we did some star gazing where I showed my clients how to find South and North using 2 constellations we have in the southern Hemisphere.

 

The following day we got up bright and early and spent a few hours looking for game.

It was a little quiet but we still got 3 of the Big 5 excepting the cats.

Breakfast was welcome and so was the rest.

That evening the clients decided to come out with me and we had some great sightings the best being 3 female Rhino playing two of which were adults. It was also interesting as it was the female with the horn the grows the opposite way to usual… see the picture.

The evening clouded over but we did spot a spotted eagle owl and a breeding heard of buffalo at the Hilltop camp entrance.

Great dinner as usual and off to bed.

 

A later morning on day 3 with a 6:55 start, breakfast and a 3 hour drive to see what we could find before making out way to St Lucia for the boat cruise.

We had not to much luck but the Warthogs were waiting in the parking lot for us, lol (Hue loved that)

After exiting the park the clients had a great time on the boat cruise at St Lucia where Hippos and Crocs where bringing smiles.

After all that excitement we headed back to King Shaka International where Sarah, Hue and Claudia flew off to Capetown.
