Today started with one of tommy’s infamous wake up calls, violently shaking the tent yelling “Good morning my sleeping beauties” giving us all the shock of our lives before we fell into fits of giggles, even first thing in the morning this trip is exciting. We expected today to be one of the quieter ones, […]
As always we had lots of fun with our group of 11 Kiboko guests. There wasn’t a quiet moment! Hope you enjoy the rest of your trip everyone!
Time to say good bye to Kosi Bay as the boys set out at 6:30 am to head once more to their Hluhluwe accommodation at Umkhumbi Lodge. But whilst we’re driving past Tembe Elephant Reserve, it would be wrong not to go in… wouldn’t it? Don’t let the name fool you, Tembe Elephant reserve is […]

Part of the beauty of Kosi Bay is that it is not too far from <a href=”www.umkhumbilodge.co.za”>Hluhluwe</a> […]
Day 2 – Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Thankfully it was not a baking hot day in the park today! The sun was out, there was no chill on the breeze (except at 5 o’clock in the morning maybe) and the bird sightings were fantastic! hamerkop woolynecked stork hadeda ibis african white backed-vulture lappet faced vulture white headed vulture […]
We have another nature tour on the go at the moment, but this time the focus is on birds (everything else as well – but mostly bird). It is off to a great start though! Tired and weary having just landed in South Africa, Jason and Adam made their way to Umkhumbi Lodge, pulling in […]
