Safari in the Wetlands

After the day of yesterday, the weather has changed dramatically again. Today is full of lovely blue skies and a lot of sun with 25 degrees Celsius. Not too shabby I must say.

It is a great day to explore iSimangaliso Wetland Park, also known as St Lucia Wetlands. We start off at the town of St Lucia and drive north towards the gate. After that, it is just straight through and follow the signs.
The road is only 34 kms long and therefore enough to keep us busy for an entire day.
And what a day it is!

Here is a small list of animals we found: Impala, Kudu, Waterbuck, Zebra, Warthog, Red Duiker, Hippo, Crocodile, Monkey, Wildebeest, Buffalo, Rhino. And quite a few birds, among which only a few I can name. Of those one stands out: Kingfisher.

We missed out on two animals here: Elephant and Leopard. Maybe tomorrow?

  1. Hallo safari gangers,

    Jullie lijst met dieren groeit hard!
    Leuk om alles weer te lezen.
    De ijsvogel ook nog mooi op de foto kunnen zetten?

    Hopelijk groeit jullie lijst morgen weer een beetje.

    Veel plezier verder!

    Christa en mark.
