White Faced Owl Safari Birding

Birding and Birds(the feathered kind) in Hluhluwe Imfolozi game reserve.

It is the small things like Birds and Birding, which fill the gaps between animal sightings. Conducting Safaris and Tours to Hluhluwe Imfolozi game reserve from Durban to see the “Big 5” is all good and well… but there is a magical world out there just waiting to be discovered if we will only look.

Lion Cubs on Durban Safari

Lions are one of the most interesting wild animals found in Africa and we are lucky enough to share sightings of these amazing creatures! During one of our Safaris from Durban we came across a pride of Lion, amongst them was a very young Lion cub. This little guy was probably just under a couple months old.

African safari tours

African safari tours are always amazing but this African safari tour would be extra special as we would see so many amazing animals in Hluhluwe Imfolozi game reserve. I had met my client in Umhlanga near Durban for their Durban day safari and we began what turned out to be a very short 2.5 hours drive to Hluhluwe game reserve. It would be the boarder between the two sections that we would enter and first head briefly into the Hluhluwe game reserve section. It was in this section we located a massive male Warthog very early on in our African safari tour.

Durban safari tour

I was blessed with a repeat client who brought a friend out from Australia to experience a Durban 3 day safari tour. We departed from Umhlanga and we were able to cover the history and new things that I hadn’t said the last time. It wasn’t long before we stopped and got some coffee and the continued on to the Cat rehabilitation center which was a real experience. My clients loved it and after interacting with the Cheetah hands on the day was set up to be legendary!

Durban safari

We began our Durban safari in the city of Durban where I collected my four clients for what was to be a very successful 2 days of safari in Hluhluwe Imfolozi game reserve. On route we chatted about the interesting history of the area as well as the crops and population groups. Before you knew it we were at the Cat rehabilitation centre for the 10:30 tour for interaction with Cheetah. We would also see Caracal, Serval and African wild cat. The Cheetah was great fun and the one male was stalking Wildebeest up the fence line. Sadly for the Cheetah the Wildebeest was safe on the other side of the fence.
