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.

Land Expropriation without compensation what about the San Bushmen

Land expropriation without compensation

During this time in South Africa of great political instability it has been made clear that land expropriation without compensation will be officially a part of our constitution. This now leaves us with the total confusion (in my eyes) as to who actually the land should be given back to. As a white South African, with my parents having been requested to move to South Africa in the 1970’s to help with Civil Engineering training of our people to create employment, where do I stand? Will it boil down to the simple fact that my skin is “white” that will determine if my land(that was paid for by my hard work) will be taken and will I be told to go back to where I came from? (Where did I come from?) Being born in South Africa and living almost my entire life here I feel South African.(I have no ties with Europe)
