This park is very interesting because it is so different from others. The proximity of the ocean transforms the landscape. A drive night is also a really good experience and our guide found us lots of chameleons! Lots of hippos and crocodiles in the river/lake.

The Isimangaliso Park is really SA best keep secret. It is the only place where I have seen both a white and a black rhino together at the same waterhole! Excellent birdlife and much more mammals than anyone would expect!

Love love love nature and anything to do with wildlife, this park gets an average, only because of the rude and unfriendly attitude of the reception staff. It’s not understandable. We have visited this park twice, and except for Kudu, we haven’t spotted other wildlife,...More
