Day 1

Settle in and relax.

Pending timings we go out for an evening walk before or after dinner.

We search for nocturnal critters including bush babies, genets and many other small creatures that aren’t often encountered like sleeping chameleons and even scorpions that glow under UV light.

Day 2

In the morning you can choose between either a game drive into Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Game Reserve or a trip to St Lucia where you do a game drive through the Western Shores and a boat cruise on the estuary.

After lunch we head back for a guided walk on our conservancy where we interpret the signs of the wild and the wildlife we encounter. There is some great birding and various animals can be seen, including Zebra, Wildebeest, Nyalas, Hippos, Crocodiles, and various smaller animals that we may encounter on foot with our experienced guides.

We will have sundowner drinks down by the river before we head back to Umkhumbi for dinner.

Day 3

After breakfast head into a nearby village for an authentic modern day village tour. The community guides will take you on walk through the village, showing you a local homestead and the school if it is a school day. They will answer any questions you have and give you a real insight into modern day life in a Zulu village.

After the tour continue on to your next destination.
