Following yesterday’s exciting foray into the Hluhluwe Game Reserve, Day Seven sees us return to the park in search of Africa’s ‘Big Five.’ This time we’ll be visiting the Umfolozi side of the reserve, where government conservation efforts have helped protect and secure a future for the region’s Big Five population. These conservation projects have ensured that the park now boasts the largest number of white rhinos anywhere in the world. We’ll also be watching out for wild dogs, giraffes, elephants and buffalo.
Day Seven offers the opportunity to meet some of the largest land mammals on the planet. We’ll visit a sanctuary that specialises in rescuing orphaned elephants and caring for these gentle giants as they grow.

This makes it the ideal place to spot hippos, crocodiles, and exotic birds. So of course we’ll be hitting the water on a fully accessible boat safari. Lunch can be enjoyed at one of the village’s delightfully quirky restaurants, and towards the end of the day, there’s also a good chance you’ll get to see hippos grazing in the village gardens!
Today we will visit a UNESCO World Heritage site, which is home to the big 5, as well as many species of birds, and wildlife. This will be your final game reserve, so make sure to charge up the camera to get your last shots of these amazing species.
Today we will meet the local Zulu tribe. You will be welcomed and educated in their way of life. You will have chance to try on the clothes they wear, and experience their local music and dancing.
