No other words except FANTASTIC can describe the experience we had today. From our early departure it wasn't long til we found all but one of the Big Five. None of it would've been possible without our guide DAVID. There wasn't anything he could not tell us, he was very knowledgeable

What a great day on safari at the Hluhluwe Game Reserve it was amazing, my expectations were well and truly met saw 3 of the big 5 unfortunately the leopard and lions were being very illusive but that's nature. The day package included breakfast and lunch which was very enjoyable and plentiful.
