To say that the month of May was a memorable one for the lodges based in the south of Nambiti is an understatement! For much of the last two weeks, we had the elephant herd, most of the southern pride, a buffalo herd and the two dominant male lions moving about in front of our lodge or close by. Guests enjoyed hearing the cracking of tree branches, deep rumbles and iconic roaring in the early hours of the morning or late into the night.
Our morning temperatures are edging towards the zero mark and game drives are starting at 06h30 for the next couple of months. When you are packing for your safari at Umzolozolo Lodge, remember to add beanies, gloves, scarves, thick socks and perhaps your thermal underwear. Winter safaris may be chilly, but they are glorious too!
