Hippo in the street

St Lucia is one of the hidden gems of South Africa. It is one of the only towns where you are very likely to see a hippo walking throught the streets of town at night.

Warm winters

When you need to get away from the cold this winter then you have to come and stay at Monzi Safaris Backpackers in sunny St Lucia Kzn. Soak up the sun and enjoy the "glamping" experience at our unique backpackers accommodation.

Spring is upon us and birds are on the increase with a really good count this morning. Spring tides presented good snorkeling at Cape Vidal. To top the day we spotted more than 20 Hump back whales at the lookout at Mission Rocks!

Ellies up close 26 August 2015

As per usual guests were picked up from their accommodation in St Lucia KZN at 5 a.m. and transported to the Hluhluwe Imfolozi game reserve.
The day was filled with many up close and personal sightings of Elephant and Rhino. The breeding herd of Elephant numbered more than 100 and the crash or Rhino was 8 strong.
Unfortunately we were reminded that this a game reserve and not a zoo, so no predators were to be seen.
