Things to do outside/near Durban City

Safari – ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Africa. Yes – a Safari is an absolute MUST DO.

Durban is sometimes overlooked when it comes to visiting as people only know about Kruger National Park when it comes to doing a Safari. 

Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve.

A mere 3 hours from Durban is the Africa’s oldest game reserve; Hluhluwe Imfolozi which is home to the Big 5.

(Lion, Leopard, Rhino, Buffalo and Elephant).

Watch this amazing video of a baby Rhino in play with a stick. We think he was trying to intimidate us — a soldier in training for sure.
