Hluhluwe Umfolozi Game reserve Safari Tour 5/8/12 - Tim Brown Tours


A great day in the African bush, only missing out on the Cats!

After collecting the clients from Durban City we headed off to Hluhluwe Umfolozi Game reserve the oldest and most prestigious reserve in South Africa.

On Route I was lucky enough to be asked lots of questions which always makes my job easier. So all the History, Cultures, Population groups, distribution etc was covered, Including the Big No No in Tourism Politics! This kept things interesting and I have to try and sit on the fence as much as possible with still getting the facts of South Africas Situation on the table.

I must make mention my clients were out from Egypt and the States to work with Gandi’s Daughter on some project she is running hence the clients knowledge about Chief Albert Luthuli, Mandela and Apartheid was solid.

Once we arrived at the game reserve we had a solid start with a Crash of 3 Rhino 30 Meters from the road which slowly approached us.

20 Minutes later we came across some Warthog, Impala, Nyala and a herd of Buffalo at a Stream.

This was a great sighting.

From here we made our way slowly to Hilltop camp where we saw 2 male Zebra munching Grass on the roadside, this was a great close up and intimate encounter.

We stopped for lunch.

After Lunch we made our way to the south and found a Journey of Giraffe, Rhino in the distance and finally 3 bull Elephant feeding on the slopes of a hill.

This was a great end to the Bush side of the Safari/Tour.

We departed and slowly made our way back to Durban with Politics becoming the main topic on route.

Arriving Back in Durban City it was dark and the clients were Tired but it had been a good day.
