Up at 0450 this morning and breakfast for 0510! We were off to Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game park to meet up with Ester. Ester was the manager of the volunteer project that I was on in Zimanga 2 years ago and she now works at Hluhluwe Imfolozi game reserve as a ranger, responsible for monitoring black rhino.
The journey took just over an hour and we met Ester, who then joined us on a day driving around the game park. Within a very short while we had seen buffalo and cheetah and by the end of the day had also seen white rhino, elephant and lion. A really enjoyable day and really interesting to hear about Esters job and to catch up.
Trai and I left the park about 2 in the afternoon so decided to go via the beach at Saint Lucia as Trai hadn’t actually seen any of Saint Lucia in daylight.
Just got back from dinner again at the Ocean basket, amazing seafood and because of the strong pound against the South African Rand, ridiculously cheap!
The Ocean basket serve their food in frying pans! That could save me some washing up when I get home
We are going on a crocodile and hippo estuary boat trip in the morning. Should be fun.
