Enjoy the two most popular excursions over 2 days with a stay over in St. Lucia. This 2 in 1 tour is a combination of Africa’s oldest game reserve and South Africa’s first World Heritage Site.
In Hluhluwe Game Reserve animals roam a vast area consisting of 960 km² of hilly topography consisting of 300km² on the Hluhluwe side and 660km² on the Imfolozi side of which 360km² is wilderness area. We don’t only get to see various animals and birds but we also experience the different terrain and vast open savannahs.
Isimangaliso Wetland Park was proclaimed a world heritage site in 1999. It is home to the largest pod of hippos in South Africa. Approximately 800 hippos can be found in Lake St. Lucia. A beautiful sunset boat trip up the estuary would be the perfect way to see what Lake St. Lucia has to offer. As you float along we will see pods of hippos, crocodiles up to 3 metres long basking in the sun and you can hear the call of a fish eagle. Isimangaliso Wetland Park is a birders paradise.
With staying the night in St. Lucia, we could get a chance to see a hippo walking the streets at night.
