Arriving at Hlane Royal National Park, the Waterhole by the restaurant was like a scene out of the Lion King! Rhino, Hippo, Elephants, Impala, Stork, Ox Peckers and Crocodile, all that was missing was the Giraffe! Another evening drive for Stephanie and Adrian Tonight followed by an early morning mountain bike ride around the park […]
The last full day of their nature tour in South Africa sees Stephanie and Adrian taking to the water once more in St Lucia. Again, these waters contain both Hippos and Crocodiles, but this time Stephanie and Adrian are on Kayaks. Paddling in the waters with Hippos and crocs doesn’t seem like such a good […]

Leopard! On the night drive last night Stephanie and Adrian saw a Leopard! They saw lots of animals, but I can’t tell you what they were as all they kept saying was “Leopard!!”. Breakfast this morning brought us a handful of guests to the table, namely the Warthog family. Out on the boat again today, […]
The worst bit about any trip is the travelling to get there and then once you are there travelling around in-country. Whilst the journey times from our base in Hluhluwe are not too long, we like to mix it up a bit, so the next leg of our journey is by boat. What a […]
Armed with our mask and snorkels (no flippers/fins needed at this reef!) We crossed the estuary feeling the alternating hot and cold currents swirling around us. The beauty of the snorkelling at Kosi Bay is that you swim across a channel and walk up on to the sand bank that runs parralel to the reef, […]
