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 of rhino are out and about.
The Hluhluwe River is boasting water levels not seen since the beginning of the year. The wildlife has relished in the abundance of drinking water and sightings down at the river have been diverse and very rewarding. Buffalo can be seen wallowing regularly.
Despite the great improvement in water levels generally, the lake at False Bay is still very low. No doubt due to the lack of rain further inland at the important catchment areas. The Lake resembles more of a salt lake with large tracts of salt visible from the lodge. Nevertheless the sense of space experienced by guests is unprecedented.
So for a land of contrasts Hluhluwe is a place to see. Whether it be the private game drive that we offer or the informative and interactive False Bay Walking Experience you will feel a connection with the landscape.
