Big Five Overnight Safaris

Roam the hunting grounds of Zulu Kings!

Safari Africa SA thebig5 Our Safaris -Big5 -Overnight    Safari Durban Tour Big 5 Tours Africa

Let Mzansi Safari Africa take you on an adventure just three hours outside of Durban and lead you into the heart of “Big 5” country and Zululand!
Hluhluwe-Imfolozi is the oldest Game reserve in Africa as it was set aside as a royal hunting ground for the Zulu Kings of old.
Hluhluwe and Umfolozi reserves were founded in 1895 but only joined in 1989 now covering 96,000 hectares of land.
The reserve is also home to the “Big 5” and numerous other mammal, bird and reptile species. The two main camps we will enjoy are Hill Top (Hluhluwe) and Mpila (Imfolozi)

(An example itinerary below)
Day 1:
Our Safari starts early from Durban and travels north along the coast.
We travel 2.5 hours to Zululand where the world famous Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Game Reserve lies.
Our first stop will be a Wild Cat Sanctuary. Here the aim is to breed indigenous species of wild cats to release into the wild and thereby strengthen wild populations.  An hour and a half walking tour will be led by a local guide and move through 4 cat species including African Wild Cats, Caracal, Serval and Cheetah.
The really exciting part is petting adult cheetah and playing with the young Servals. (All very safe).
After a good lunch (own expense) we will drive to the entrance of the Game reserve. After formalities our first game drive will start. Our overnight camp is about an hour drive through the park. Depending on what we see on the way it may take a little longer.
After checking in we will relax for a while then go out on an afternoon game drive. This is a great opportunity to see elephants, lions, giraffe and numerous antelope species.
This evening we have an optional open safari vehicle drive R330 pp (own account).
Dinner
Day 2:

This day will probably have an early start. The night before your Guide will discuss options of what to do for the day.
We may go out when the gate opens for a 3 hour game drive. The earlier the better as cats and hyenas are more active early morning. It’s also a great time to see rhinos marking the territory.
After the drive we would return to the camp for a scrumptious buffet breakfast.
This day we will have optional extras like more drives or elephant interactions (own account).
Other possibilities are to do a full day game drive and explore the south side of the park. A packed breakfast will be taken along to enjoy at a picnic site.
The big bonus on the south side is the larger number of cats. Lions and Cheetah are regularly seen in the south.

Breakfast and dinner

Last day:

After a final game drive and a delicious breakfast we head to the town of St Lucia.
St Lucia is an Estuary and wet land. It has hundreds of hippos and crocodiles. Here we will board a river cruiser and spend 2 hours looking for hippos and crocs. There are also around 500 different bird species in the area. Fish eagles, kingfishers and other water birds are often seen.
