After an early start and collecting my clients from Zimbali (Durban area) we started a speedy trek to get to St Lucia in time for the 10am boat cruise. We made it just in time. My mother always used to say “if you just clear the river (by jumping across) you don’t get wet” much the same with our arrival.
We began with the 2 hour boat cruise up Lake St Lucia which was beautiful as the weather was lovely and sunny. We were fortunate to see 3 crocodiles probably due to the breeding seasons arrival on the lakes banks.
Hippo’s galore as every where we went there was Hippo. I was fortunate to capture a African Fish eagle taking off which was special for me.
We even saw a dead Hippo Bull which had been killed my a dominant male in the area, obviously he tried his luck and lost his life in the process.
After the cruise we headed off to the Crocodile farm and the for some lunch(big lunch)!
Ending off we drove through the town of St Lucia to the board walk to the ocean where we saw another pod of Hippo lying up on the banks of the Estuary.
After spending a bit of time here we headed back to Durban after a great day at the world heritage sight of ST Lucia wetlands or Isimangeliso Wetland park as its now called.
