I collected my clients Simon and Paula from Gwahumbe game reserve in Mid Ilovo area. Was a bit crazy I Simon was the cousin of a guy I used to work with in Dubai; Paul who I also met there as they had a family wedding.
After a quick meet and greet it was off to Hluhluwe which took us 4 hours so I covered the History of the area Durban and Kwa-Zulu Natal etc.
We would be spending one night at Hilltop camp and one night at Mantuma in Mkuze so it was a big driving tour but the clients enjoyed seeing the two different reserves.
We had some amazing luck with Elephants, Rhino, Buffalo and Wild Dogs which made the trip that much better.
The clients went of the evening game drive the first night and enjoyed that even though there was not much big cat activity.
The following morning we departed for Mkuze where the area was a little flatter with the Lobombo mountain range on the eastern side of the reserve.
The great thing was the camp, basically a sand forest which is a rare habitat. I was so happy when I saw a pair of Yellow Billed hornbills which according to the distribution map are not found this far south. A real birders paradise.
That Night I Braai’d for the clients which they enjoyed and I was very greatfull When Paula offered to do the dishes as it had been a long day.
The next morning we headed down to St Lucia which took us 2.5 hours from Mkuze and the clients enjoyed the boat cruise while I got some rest before the final 3 hour drive to Durban city where I dropped them off that evening.
A lovely and long Safari Tour.
