We watch and join in on bead making, mat weaving, and the playing of local instruments. We will meet a sangoma (witchdoctor) and watch traditional Zulu dancing. Following our cultural experience we head into St Lucia be-fore enjoying a boat cruise on the St Lucia Estuary part of the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park, a world heritage site with the opportunity of viewing hippos and crocodiles, African fish eagles and other birds. Following the boat cruise, we transfer to our overnight lodge (situated on a small private reserve) for dinner and overnight.Accommodation: Gazebo Safari Lodge or similar.
Day 2: Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Game Reserve (BD)
A full day's game viewing awaits in an open game viewing vehicle in Hluhluwe-Imfo-lozi Game Reserve renowned for its rhino conservation as well as home to the 'Big Five' plus an abundance of other animal species in-cluding zebra, giraffe, cheetah and wild dog. We depart early morning with breakfast packs prepared and undertake our game drive early when the animals are most visible and active. Today we will also visit the reserves renown-ed Centenary Centre and the museum that depicts the history of live game capture and translocation of game, especially the white rhino that would no doubt be extinct without the creation of this reserve. With a bit of luck there will be an opportunity for a close-up encounter with an animal or two in the capture bomas (enclosures), awaiting their big move to other reserves. We return to our lodge in the late afternoon before enjoying a boma dinner reminiscing about the day's sightings.Accommodation: Gazebo Safari Lodge or similar
