DESCRIPTION


St Lucia World Hertiage Site is approximately 2.5 hours from King Shaka International Airport and is a place where humans and hippos’ live side by side. Our time here is spent exploring the hippo-filled estuary, visiting the local market, heading out on a game drive through Isimangaliso Wetland Park and taking in the pristine shores of Cape Vidal.


Our next two nights take us to Manyoni Private Game Reserve where the thrill of bumping into an elephant, spotting the elusive leopard or discovering a pride of lions lying low in the grasslands, is second to none. Warm hospitality awaits at Rhino River Lodge where you will be staying. Your knowledgeable and friendly ranger will do his best to bring you the best sightings of animals during your early morning and late afternoon safari game drives while traversing the 23’000 hectares of land in Manyoni Private Game Reserve. This is one of the largest privately owned reserves in KwaZulu-Natal with conservation at the core to protect threatened and endangered animal species.
