Umlalazi Airshow

While exploring the mangrove swamps here at Umlalazi Nature Reserve this morning, this Pink-backed Pelican treated us to a low-level flypast.

Today was our last day here at Umlalazi. Tomorrow, we head for the Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park. If we have a good enough connection well try to post a daily update from there as well.

            Last time we were there it was frighteningly dry with animals dying, so it will be a relief to see it lush. We will be staying in the tented camp at Mpila – the safari tents I think they call them. On our last trip it was sad to see at night the bright lights from the coal mine which are visible from the main Mpila chalets.

            Yes, those lights are a stark reminder of an outside world we had to return to today, with much sadness… During our rambles through the camp we walked through the safari tent part of the camp, and they do look in lovely condition – actually, Mpila as a whole is looking great and we always find the staff there much more friendly and hospitable than those at Hilltop. I’m sure you will have a great time and can’t wait to compare notes when you return!

            Thanks for the positive news re Mpila – good to know. We also prefer to stay at Mpila than Hilltop and we are looking forward to it. Will be nice to compare notes afterwards! Thanks.
