Wildlife Safari

“The wildlife safari options allow you to explore different regions, enjoy unique experiences, but all of them take you to the wildlife – be it on foot, in an open safari vehicle or aboard a boat.”

Game Viewing

Game viewing is enjoyable throughout the year; however, the ideal time is from April to September when the bush is parse and the climate comfortable. Visitors have an excellent change of seeing the Big 5, lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo, as well as cheetah, giraffe, hippo's and many types of antelope and a wealth of unique bird life. The Elephant Coast flora and marine life is impressive.

The wilderness trail in the iMfolozi Game Reserve will leave you with memories of a lifetime as you go 'game viewing', on foot, with qualified rangers. Many people remark on how they notice all the smaller creatures on this trail that usually covers a few days, where you sleep out in the wild.



The wilderness trail was established in 1959 by game rangers Ian Player and Magqubu Ntombela and was the culmination of a dream to share the peace and beauty of one of the few wild unpopulated places. This saw the start of the wilderness trails where visitors to proclaimed game reserves could experience the freedom of walking through untouched game country

Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park
Self-drives, arranged game drives with rangers in open safari vehicles, or even bush walks with rangers, are available in this Big 5 game reserve in a landscape that changes from rolling hills, to dense forest patches and thorn veld valleys.

iSimangaliso Wetland Park
The most significant game viewing opportunities in the iSimangaliso Wetland Park are in the uMkhuze and Eastern Shores sections of the Park which also have prolific bird life. Local guides are available, as well as arranged game viewing.

The Eastern Shores
The entrance is just north of the town of St Lucia. A tar road leads to Cape Vidal, and a gravel loop road leads past Lake Bhangazi. Another worthwhile stop is the rock pools at Mission Rocks, and the lookout point with views of the ocean, rolling grasslands and Lake St Lucia.

This reserve is best known for its three game-viewing hides and different pans, and is a birders paradise, with a list of more than 400 species. Look out for the buffalo, wild dog and cheetah.


Ndumo Game Reserve
Two major rivers, the Usuthu and uPongolo, flow through this reserve. Ndumo is famous for its fever tree fringed pans and is a birdwatcher's paradise, with more than 420 species.

Tembe Elephant Park
Home to 150 elephants and the largest suni population in the country, Tembe is an isolated wilderness of sand forest and dense thicket. With lion being introduced two years ago, this park now also boasts the Big 5.


Private Conservation Areas
Numerous farms and communal areas are being re-established as conservation areas. Most of the private game lodges have a range of safari activities.

Viewing by boat
Boat tours at St Lucia ensure you have the opportunity of viewing hippos and crocodiles up close, while bird life thrives and provides great photographic opportunities
