    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)

    It was another lovely day in Durban where we met our clients and began our adventure up the coast to the famous Hluhluwe Imfolozi game reserve. This reserve is a Big 5 and Malaria-free safari park. We love to take our clients here on our Durban safaris.After the initial meet and greet we departed for the day tour. We arrived at the Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve after 2.5 hours. We spotted Zebra next to the road within a minute of entering!

    We have had some great success on our recent African safaris from Durban over the past couple of months. These sightings range from animals on the road crossing in front of our vehicle, Elephants sleeping, Cheetah hunting, Wild Dogs hunting on the road, Leopard sleeping, Black Rhino browsing, Wildebeest drinking, Lion drinking and happy clients on safari!

    Join Tim Brown Tours on a Durban safari tour to the Hluhluwe game reserve where nature comes alive and dreams are made! Try us for your African safari experience.

    After collecting my clients from their hotel in Durban we headed off to the world famous Hluhluwe Imfolozi game reserve where we would begin our safari.

    We are blessed with good weather in Durban and it only get warmer on route to Hluhluwe game reserve. It was here that we entered and began our safari looking for as many of the Big 5 as possible.

    We began our Hluhluwe day safari bright and early as you would when going on an African safari tour! It was a lovely day as it had rained the night before so it was a little cooler today so we could enjoy the safari away from the extreme summer heat!

    On route to the Hluhluwe Imfolozi game reserve I covered some of the interesting history of Durban, KwaZulu Natal and South Africa as well as the population groups and how they came to be here. It also ended up with some politics which you really should never discuss with your clients but if they are happy with hearing your opinion then it is fine.

    Our South African safari to Hluhluwe Imfolozi game reserve began in Durban. After collecting my clients we headed into Zululand and our safari began with a visit to a Cat rehabilitation center.

    After some amazing interaction with four endangered species of cat we departed for Hluhluwe Imfolozi game reserve where we would try to find as many of the Big 5 animals as we could. We were very luck and the first animal we saw close was 2 Lions about 25 meters off the road.

    Our African safari from Durban began near to the big city and we began our journey to Hluhluwe Imfolozi game reserve , Africa’s Oldest protected area!

    I covered the history of this famous national park and the history of the Durban and surrounding areas before we arrived at Hluhluwe game reserve.

    We tried our best in the heat to find Lions but it was to no avail as they were resting in a riverbed.

    We had great other sightings of 3 of the Big 5, Rhino, Buffalo and Elephants.

    First though we spotted some Zebra.

    Our African safari tours can be done from Durban with Tim Brown Tours and it was here where I collected my clients for this 4 day safari.
    We could begin by visiting the Fort Nongqayi Museum in Eshowe which features the Wheel chair of King Mpande a half brother to the famous King Shaka of the Zulu Nation. It also features John Dunns furniture, Zulu crafts and a Church showing off the missionary work of the Norwegians in the area!

    Our Durban safari tour began in Durban city where I collected my clients for their safari experience with Tim Brown Tours. We headed up to Hluhluwe Imfolozi game reserve on route stopping at a Cat rehabilitation center for interaction with Cheetah, Serval, Caracal and African Wild cat hands on! 

    There is no point in coming to Africa and not experiencing an African safari! South Africa is as good a place to begin with a safari as we are home to the oldest game reserve in Africa, Hluhluwe Imfolozi game reserve established in 1895.

    On route to this majestic national park home to the Big 5, I always cover this history of South Africa as it ties so well into our Safari experience.

    I met my clients for their Durban safari off the Ocean Nautica ship that docked in Durban. We were to visit Tala game reserve and Phezulu safari park. At Phezulu we would be entertained by the Zulu dancers and singers at the Zulu Cultural village and then enter their huts to learn more about the Zulus culture! I also took my clients for a tour around the reptile park before the Zulu cultural village tour.
