South Africa 2011 – Part 5

Video and images of a fourth trip to Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Game Reserve, 30th August - 1st September 2011. This is the oldest game reserve in Africa and covers some 960 km² (approx. 371 sq. miles) in central Zululand, KwaZulu-Natal - about 280 km north of Durban and close to the town of Mtubatuba and Hluhluwe village. It's about an hour or so west of the Greater St Lucia Wetlands (driving sedately). The word 'Hluhluwe' comes from the isiZulu word that describes the thorny rope climber, a plant prevalent in the park, with some very nasty thorns - best avoided while dandering about foot trails. The whole area is pure joy.
