Hluhluwe Umfolozi game reserve – Durban Day Safari Tour 22 November 2013
This was an amazing Durban day Safari Tour even if I say so myself.
We had a slow start and saw Only Impala, then we got going it was a Hyena which was heading to a carcass of what looked like an impala which had been eaten by Lions. Sadly the Lions moved into the thick bush.
As we went on we saw a big crocodile in the Umfolozi river at the bridge crossing and Rhino as we went on.
After Mpila camp we hit it big and spotted 1 lioness under a tree we drove round and found 2 other and a young male hiding in a thicket. They all got up and walked to the one lioness under the tree and fell asleep.
We then found Buffalo, Giraffe and Zebra before stopping at Mpafa hide here we found 2 Bull elephant strangely eating Rubber Euphorbia a toxic plant. Ellies have a bad digestive system anyway so it was probably to help with a stomach ailment.
We drove back to the Lions and they were still sleeping but later found another Lioness sleeping.
It was time for lunch and a rest so we headed to centenary center for lunch.
A fast lunch and back out as the clients wanted to see Elephants with babies eish.
We were lucky and found 4 different herds of Elephant I thought it was Christmas already lol.
Great day, later it was buffalo and Rhino before heading back to Durban.
