Travelling into Hluhluwe Game Reserve remains an extraordinary experience and a great way to discover a magnificent game reserve while in South Africa. This 96000 hectare reserve has so much to offer not only the Big 5 but Cheetah and Wild Dog to mention but just some of the amazing animal species one may just encounter while in Hluhluwe. This mornings safari into Hluhluwe resulted yet another great day to be on safari.
Starting out cool with a light breeze we enjoyed some piping hot Tea and Coffee and then headed of into the bush. Not to long and we witnessed Wild Dogs in and amongst Zebra, the Zebra a bit conscious kept their distance. The Wild Dog remained in the area for only a short time before moving off, this may have been due to him not having the pack to assist in the hunt. As the day progressed a light lunch was enjoyed while listening to the Birds and calls in the distance. A seemingly slow morning we travelled deeper into the bush looking and searching for something exciting. The result Black Rhino in the distance, two of them an amazing sighting, Giraffe, Buffalo and a quick sighting of Lion as the male headed of into the bush.
It was time to head back to the lodge and then when came across this magnificent Elephant enjoying a sand bath. Yet another perfect day to be in the bush and Hluhluwe Game Reserve on safari.
