COOL CROCS meet HIP HOP HIPPOS…. by Ursula Brown

Hippos, Crocs (made in the Nile) (and not used to clad your feet) and the majestic magnificent Fish Eagle – take centre stage and at iSimangaliso World Heritage Site. Declared by UNESCO, 1 Dec 1999, iSimangaliso, lives up to it’s Zulu name, “Miracles” and “Wonders”.

Sarj, Raj, Laxmi, Shiv and Alicia (Karanicha Family), from the UK, were in Pietermaritzburg visiting family. African Link accompanied the family – Safari and boat cruise on The SANTA LUCIA, with skipper Robert Mthethwa keeping her steady, gliding over the spectacular 61 kms long (5 km wide) Lake St Lucia.

Spotting the lake’s residents is Nompumelelo Zikhali, an experienced accomplished tour guide and leader, pointing out the whereabouts of our friends in nature.

Hippo Pods dotted about on the sandy banks, an eerily floating croc, here and there, as if on cue, for visitors on board to “shoot”.

A trip to this fascinating corner of the Zulu Kingdom, demands that guests board and float, both upstream and back again.

A fascinating lesson in quirky ways of wildlife, conservation and heritage are relayed to guests by the passionate, knowledgeable team, who understand life, convincingly care about the environment and clearly realise that iSimangaliso is, indeed, a miraculous wonder.


Peaceful……tranquil…… heavenly
