As a family we have always spent time in the Game Reserve and it has always been Hluhluwe/Umfolozi as our first choice.
Travelling home to SA for my first summer holiday has been awesome! Along with my Dad, Mum and grandparents we made our way to the reserve just a few days after I had landed! I had booked us all into the tented camps for two nights and I was looking forward to:
Luckily for me number 3 was very easy! It was awesome to spend some time with my grandparents and it is always fun when my folks are around. As you will see later I think the most fun I had was with my camera!
So if you are thinking of visiting South Africa soon and are looking for a great place to stay and the best Game sightings don't go anywhere else but to Hluhluwe/Umfolozi!
Mplia Tented Camps - this is where we stayed! Rustic, self catering with its own resident Hyena!
I hope you enjoy some of my favourite pics from the weekend?
Braaing is something we do often as a family and when in the reserve it is no different until and unwanted visitor approaches! Rather spooky to find that he was very close, closer than we thought! A sighting like this is great BUT we do think it is very dangerous and the park somehow needs to curb his behaviour. There have been numerous reports of him stealing braaimeat off the fire!
To clarify I'm talking about the Hyena and NOT my Dad!
This sighting of Wild Dog is my first in the reserve and man oh man was it awesome! they simply lazed in the sun for more than half and hour while the shutters clicked furiously around them!
