hornbill - constant companions in camp

1st rhino


Several hours' drive up the coast and inland took us to this magnificent park. This is one of the most beautiful parks we've been to. It has great diversity of landscapes and wildlife, but is not too crowded with people or cars. Also very manageable and easy to drive around.

Here, we saw giraffe, elephant (close encounters, but not as scary as in Addo), white Rhino, hyena, zebra, etc. No cats yet, but really good park. The first night we stayed in a cabin in the Imfolozi portion of the park which is more scrub and rolling hills. The camp was unfenced and we could hear hyena walking outside of our window during the night. Luckily we had an en suite toilet and kitchen so did not have to go outside in the dark! The second night we stayed in a rondavel in the Hluhluwe part of the park, which was fenced. Here the landscape was more grassy savanna and packed with elephants. GREAT park. We hope to come back someday.
