We recently had some unexpected visitors to Umkhumbi Lodge: two Wild Dogs were spotted by the reserve manager in Kuleni on the 21st September. This caused some excitement!

Day 5 – Wilderness Trail The Nightwatch diary Got up quite early and got ready for the over night wilderness trail. Not going to lie, sounded pretty scary, walking through the bush and then camping over night outside with people taking shifts to keep watch, but it was so cool!!!!! So the walk to the […]
It seems that these little primates are becoming big fans of the night vision camera! I was standing right in the window with a normal video camera for this one! They’re getting brave!
Whilst the bushbabies love to hang out in our sandforest here in Hluhluwe, they tend to run off at the sight of humans. But now winter is coming and they have suddenly got very confident… Be prepared for regular updates from these cheeky little monkeys!!

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 […]
Adrian and Stephanie enjoyed yesterdays full day game drive so much that they’ve decided to go on another one! They’ve clocked the Big 5 – but it would appear that’s not enough, they want to see a Cheetah in the wild and they want black rhino. Good luck!
Well done Adrian! On todays game drive he spotted the first Lion, and before the game ranger! That never happens!! Be proud
