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! The only large carnivore at Kuleni is a couple of leopards that include the game park in their home ranges. The two wild dogs killed an impala […]

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!!
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!
The Vervet Monkeys are running wild today at Umkhumbi Lodge!! Playful as always they are running up and down the branches, munching on monkey apples and mangos and anything else they can find to sink their little teeth into.

An early start for Jason and Adam today as they head up to Ndumo Game reserve for a full day of fantastic bird and animal sightings. Only one thing can top a great day, and that is going on a Turtle tour. Sea turtles who usually live in the deep deep depths come on land […]
Snorkelling is the plan today! Armed with our goggles, snorkels and flippers we clambered into the Land Cruiser ready for Tommy to drive us down to Kosi Bay mouth estuary. It is possible to walk down, but after a long day snorkelling driving back up the hill is much nicer! when we got down to […]
Amangwane at Kosi Bay is one of my favourite places, so imagine my joy when we were to go to Kosi Bay for three nights looking for more birds to tick off of Jason and Adams substantial birdlist! Part of the beauty of Kosi Bay is that it is not too far from <a href=”www.umkhumbilodge.co.za”>Hluhluwe</a> […]
