The King and Prime Minister of Imfolozi

This morning we spent some time with two magnificent male lions in the far western reaches of Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park.

One of them was bruised and battered with battle scars all over his body. Obviously he’s the enforcer for the King; the light-maned male with the relatively unscathed hide and face.

Sadly, today was our final full day here at Hluhluwe-Imfolozi. Tomorrow we only have the distance between here at Mpila Camp and the Memorial Gate to savour this pristine wilderness one last time before heading back to Pretoria.

      We certainly did, thanks Carol – our route from Memorial Gate via Pongola, Piet Retief and Ermelo back to Pretoria was much quieter than we expected (and there’s a brilliant new Total service station just on the northern outskirts of Piet Retief that’s well worth stopping at, if ever you come that way)

      Ons roete tussen Hluhluwe en Pretoria is regtig baie gemaklik, Ineke – net n paar kilometer se padwerke tussen Hendrina en Middelburg maar as dit klaar is gaan die pad nog meer van n plesier wees!
