This overnight safari departing from Durban is completely devoted to finding Africa’s wildlife including the Big Five in the Zululand reserves north of Durban – for those with limited time. We operate the tour in our vehicles, but you also have the opportunity to join optional open vehicle safaris to further enhance the experience.
DAY 1 Durban – Zululand – Hluhluwe Imfolozi Park (Big Five Safari)
Our Big Five wildlife safari commences at around 08h00 from Durban. Travel northwards and turn towards the village of Eshowe (Zulu for the sound of the wind blowing through the forest). Traverse further along scenic hilly areas with beautiful vistas. Once past Ulundi, the Capital of the previous homeland of KwaZulu, continue to the park. Enter Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park game reserve to start our game viewing and spend the day here. After an exciting day in search of Africa’s wildlife, we exit the park and travel to our nearby country hotel. Overnight at the Zulu Nyala Heritage Hotel.
DAY 2 Hluhluwe Imfolozi Park – Durban
We have an early breakfast and afterwards return to the reserve and spend most of the day searching for Africa’s Big Five (lion, leopard, elephant, rhino, buffalo). You are able to join an optional early morning open vehicle safari. Enjoy lunch (not included) at the Hilltop recreational centre and afterwards continue game viewing. We leave the park around mid-afternoon after the game drive and set off to Durban.
