6 Aug 2017 Day Trip to Hluhluwe-Imfolozi
We booked a day trip for 5 people in our family. David promptly picked us at 5 am right outside where we were staying and drove us to the park.We entered the park just after 6 am and started to drive through the park. David is very knowledgeable about the animals and the park itself. He was a wonderful host as he prepared our breakfast. We thoroughly enjoyed our time and saw many animals as well. I would highly recommend this trip.
