We had a game drive in the park starting from noon.
We did a game drive at the Kruger earlier this week, and there we saw the big five. So I though how can Hluhluwe be better? But it was!! --> read more.
We started at the main road, but after 10 minutes we took a small side road, where we saw a large variety of animals:
A family of warthogs playing in the mud, a group of zebra walking around,
Some rhino hiding behind the trees, birds flying around.
And suddenly our jeep had to stop and we had to be quiet.
A herd of buffalos was crossing the road! We counted more than 50 of them! Amazing! (see pictures).
When the road was clear, we commenced our game drive.
We had to drive many kilometers before we saw some wildlife again. Then we had a stop at the top of the mountain and commenced our search again.
We had given up our hopes to see elephants, but our driver did his best! We saw a small group walking in the distance, too far away to go by jeep.
The driver was returning to the entrance, because it was getting dark, but then it happened! We saw a large group of elephants drinking at a pool of water. AMAZING!
(see picture, I resized the picture for the protection of the elephant, so the location is unknown.)
