The magic of Nsumo Pan

uMkhuze Game Reserve, in the iSimangaliso Wetland Park, has a lot to offer any nature lover, no matter where their interests lie. One of the reserve’s biggest drawcards is the Nsumo Pan, a large body of water fed by the Mkuzi River. Nsumo is home to breeding pink-backed and great white pelicans, hippos and crocodiles, among the huge variety of  birds and animals that live along its reed and fever-tree lined shores. The reserve authorities have made it really easy to enjoy Nsumo’s magic: a tar road skirts a part of its northern banks, there are two bird-viewing platforms at the water’s edge and a beautiful picnic site with clean ablutions and braai (barbeque) facilities.

We have lots more to share in upcoming posts about our December visit to uMkhuze Game Reserve 😀

      You are so right Jane. Next to Nsumo Pan, beneath the spreading branches of the fever trees and wild figs alive with bird and animal calls, it is easy to forget that there’s a world “out there” being destroyed by a greedy humanity…
