  • In the Rear View Mirror: November 2015

    Posted on December 4, 2015 by Gavin in Day Trips.

    Our trips during November have been a lot more colorful. The storms we had have made much of the area a lot more green and a few trees that are flowering are adding a splash of color among the green hills. Its a very different landscape and the abundant herds of buffalo and smaller groups […]

  • Getting Stuck: Our Rescue from the River

    Posted on December 4, 2015 by Gavin in Day Trips.

    It was bound to happen at some point I’m sure. I had crossed the river successfully many times before without issue. Nevertheless two days ago, on our game drive, we attempted to cross the second crossing of the slightly soggy river down in Mansiya Loop. The recent rains, as mentioned in our previous post have […]

  • Alive with the Change of Rain

    Posted on November 28, 2015 by Gavin in Day Trips.

    Recently we had a surprising twist of fate here at the Lodge. Until recently we had been left high and dry as each storm that came our way turned and avoided the entire area of Hluhluwe. Whether it was headed down from Mozambique or headed up from further down in KwaZulu- Natal it didn’t matter, […]

  • In The Rear View Mirror- A Brief Look Back

    Posted on November 12, 2015 by Gavin in Day Trips, On Safari.

    As we approach the end of the year it is time to take a brief glance back at what we have done recently. To be honest 2015 has been a year of ups and downs and has seen some changes here at the Lodge. There is a rather fitting philosophy which is worth mentioning. It […]

  • What is Wilderness? Stepping Beyond the Ordinary

    Posted on November 10, 2015 by Gavin in Day Trips.

    What is wilderness? Well the answer is surprisingly simple. Wilderness is characterized by the absence of roads, walking trails, that are man made, and any human habitation. That is the true definition of wilderness. Further, it is afforded the highest level of protection and has the least human interference. However, to my mind wilderness is […]

  • Walking the Sand Forests

    Posted on October 29, 2015 by Gavin in Day Trips, Hiking Trails.

    Hluhluwe River Lodge is located near one of the most remarkable protected sand forests in South Africa. This unique forest type is typified by its sparse understory and sandy soils. The theory is that these forests originated on ancient dune deposits along the original coastal seaboard of Zululand’s eastern coast some 80 000 years ago. […]

  • Fantastic Elephant experience.

    Posted on September 6, 2013 by Gavin in Adventures, Day Trips, Family fun.

    We recently visited the Bayete Elephant Interaction just a 30 minute drive from our accommodation Hluhluwe River Lodge. Animal interactions are always a sensitive issue so we are always very careful to recommend anything that is not up to standard as far as animal exploitation is concerned. There is a place for ‘animal petting’ experiences […]

  • Walking in wonderland

    Posted on May 13, 2013 by Gavin in Day Trips, Hiking Trails.

    The Ingwe Trail is a most beautiful walking path that meanders through the sand forests and shoreline at False Bay Park. The start of the trail or ‘trail head’ as it is known in hiking terms is a mere ten minute drive from your accommodation at Hluhluwe River Lodge and a must do for visitors. Apart from the beautiful […]
