Hidden Gem – Isimangaliso Western Shores

A lot of places take up the spotlight when thinking of coming to the greater Hluhluwe area,  Hluhluwe-Imfolozi game reserve, St Lucia, Cape Vidal are probably top of the list. Isimangaliso Western Shores is really an overlooked part of the greater reserve, it’s wide open spaces and dense forest areas makes it definitely one of the more diverse areas. It is a great place to view plains game especially some of the more difficult to find game species like Tsessebe and Bushbuck. The reserve boasts 4 of the Big 5 with only the Lion missing. If you are truly lucky you will find that elusive Leopard which is always a hard species to find.

When visiting Hluhluwe only for a day or a few, Isimangaliso Western Shores is really a special place that is really worth visiting!
