From Mkuze national park it is a short trip to the St. Lucia wetland park. I stayed there for two nights in the Ingwenya lodge. St. Lucia is a small village which is very popular among the south african people. It is a nice place with lot of shops, restaurants and the possibilty to make a boat trip to see the hippo's and crocodiles in the river.
At night you have to be very carefull, because after dark, the hippo's graze the green grass next to the road. These animals are responsible for a great number of deaths. When they feel threatened, they will attack.
After St.Lucia I drove to the Hluwhluw-Umfolozi National Park.
Pictures of the animals I saw there will be posted in another blogpost.
