    Kruger National Park is often the first thing that comes to mind, yes? As a Durban based Tour Operator, I often think about why the Kruger national Park would be my first choice. What other option do You have …?

    Well – Durban is home to the “oldest “game reserve (protected) Safari Park in Africa so say with us for some “nuggets of gold”

    Recently my family and I visited a lodge on the North coast of KwaZulu Natal, a route we (Tim Brown Tours) travel regularly conducting our Safari Tours from Durban. It was here I was looking at the lovely setup of the lodge and thought that it really needed a “Boma”.

    This word “Boma” is one of those words which has crossed over a number of languages and therefore has an adjusted meaning in different areas.

    Before we get into some of the ideas for building a Boma we need break down some of the meanings for this word.

    Needing a hollow in a tree usually preferred to be 3 meters off the ground for protection. Looking at the size of the Southern Ground Hornbill you can see how near impossible this nesting habit can be.

    Our Durban safari tour began in the city where I collected my clients and we made our way towards the Hluhluwe Imfolozi game reserve my favorite protected area in Africa.

    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.
