An Early morning for me up at 04:30 and off to Springfield park to collect a larger vehicle for my group of 12 clients. After that I met the clients in Umhlanga(hotel) area and it was really raining hard!
We were in luck though the day only got better as we went along.
I started into the History of Durban and Kwa-Zulu Natal aswell as how each population group came to be here in South Africa aswell as Durban.
After a short refueling stop we were back on the road and we entered at the Southern gate or Nyalazi gate. I decided It was best to try get round to Mpafa Hide and do the first loop to see if we could find cats. Well we didnt need to even go there because after a few minutes we spotted a Lioness with 2 sub adult Males walking through the long grass in the rain. The picture is not very good due to this see above.
Later it was Load of Giraffe, Zebra, Warthog, Buffalo, Wildebeest, Impala aswell as after lunch Elephant and Rhino.
It was a great day having found 4 of the big 5 which is very hard of a Day Tour as you are driving around in the middle period of the day (usually hot).
We were all excited as we had to wait a long time for the Elephant and Rhino but when the showed up it was amazing, The bull elephant crossed the road in front of us and the Rhinos where not that far away either.
Im sure the Team from GB enjoyed it. The highlight for me was a Secretary bird, very rare hunting in the grassland.
Later we needed to head back to Durban so we left the game reserve at about 4pm to get back by 7. We made some really good time being a sunday and got to the hotel by 18:30.
I then returned the vehicle and drove home. A long but satisfying day in the African Bush.
