What to expect
This is the oldest, proclaimed park in Africa (est. 1895) and is home to the big five. Situated approximately 70 km from St. Lucia, this is a park you have to see. The 84 mammal species and the 370 bird species call this piece of heaven home. The area of the park is 960km squared, and the topography ranges from the lowlands of the Umfolozi River to steep hilly country. The park is renowned for its rhino conservation project and is home to the largest population of white rhino in the world. This tour starts at 5:00am in St. Lucia, where you will be picked up at your accommodation or, alternatively, you could meet at Nyalazi Gate at 6:00am. From there you will be transported to the park. Once inside the park, your highly qualified guide will set you off on a journey to look for the big five. After a scrumptious breakfast at a picnic site or even a special lookout point, you head out on your quest again. At about 12:00pm you will be dropped off at your accommodation again.

Excellent half-day safari experience
Oct 2020
Saw giraffes, elephant, wildebeest, groups of white rhino, warthogs, a variety of buck in the dawn light drive through the park. Bheki and Sandile made it a real learning experience with their fascinating local knowledge of plants, birds, reptiles, mammals and land forms. No questions went unanswered! The trip is also excellent value for money, and includes park entry fees, transport, breakfast and drinks along the way. We had a wonderful time and would definitely book Monzi Tours and these guides again. Thank you!

Lucky Morning
Dec 2019
We were lucky enough to see 4 of the big 5 in just half a day. Our game expert was a fantastic driver and host and got us in position to enjoy the animals we saw. Also providing blankets for us in the open topped vehicle made our day more comfortable.

What an amazing tour with ARNO
This was an absolutely great tour. Arno does know a lot to tell about almost every animal, even about birds. We‘ve spotted so many animals, lots of rhinos, elefants, giraffes, zebras, impalas, gnus, and finally the lions from far away, which was great ! Delicious lunch and good breakfast.
