The staple diet…

A selection of five common herbivore species form the base diet of most of Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park’s predators. Apart from the warthogs we showed you yesterday, the majority of their menu is mostly made up of impalas, nyalas, plains zebras and blue wildebeests with the more “exotic” fare consisting of primates (like the samango monkey), kudu, waterbuck, buffaloes and giraffes (we’ll share some pictures of the latter two tomorrow).

Looking at the excellent condition of the game following good rains just before our December visit, you’d be forgiven though for thinking that it is an easy life for a herbivore in Hluhluwe-Imfolozi!
