Hluhluwe Game Reserve Sighting update

Hluhluwe Game Reserve Safaris with Heritage Tours & SafarisWell its that time of the week again for our weekly update from the Hluhluwe Umfolozi Game Reserve South Africa.

Its been a good week for safaris once again and the area has also received some fantastic rain. The Black Umfolozi River come down again so most of the water holes are filling up nicely.

Hluhluwe Game Reserve offered us safari sightings of spectacular Lions, Black Rhinos once again and the highlight of this week has to be yesterday when our clients got to see Cheetah and Pups (5) of them. The grass is growing fast and soon self drives will become problematic as hight restrictions of various vehicles will pose a problem in seeing the various animals.

Our Night Drives into Isimangaliso Wetlands Park offered clients sightings of Leopards this week with Rhinos next to the game drives. As we approach December the whales become more difficult to spot however this time of the year offers clients a new exciting excursion, Turtle tours land based, various operators offer this magnificent excursion to witness either Loggerhead and Leatherback’s nesting. This once a year opportunity takes place from November until the end of March when one has the opportunity to witness the hatchlings.

The safari takes place from St Lucia to Cape Vidal and from their one gets to travel on the beach upto Leven point. This area is a sanctuary and has been the area to witness turtles laying their eggs.

Until next week
