Lake Jozini delivers Crocs and Hippos Galore!

Whilst staying at White Elephant Safari Lodge this weekend with my son Eden, I got to do something that makes me very happy! An early morning boat cruise on Lake Jozini in search of crocs and hippos and game coming down for a drink on the water’s edge.

We left the Lodge in an Open Game Vehicle with our Ranger Freedom, winding our way through the Pongola Game Reserve towards Lake Jozini where we boarded an 8 seater flat-bottomed boat. We took an easy trip along the water’s edge, finding crocodiles, hippos and numerous wonderful species of birds along the way which we could stop and enjoy.

For more see – Perfection!

A pod of hippos along the shore line. Did you know that hippos don’t swim, they actually walk along the bottom of the river or lake, bouncing buoyantly forward as necessary.

Sneaky crocodile just peeping out of the water.

My son Eden enjoying a cup of coffee as we gently bob on the calm water. The views across the lake and mountains are just amazing.

This is the sign that welcomes you on arrival at the water’s edge – a true indication of what can be expected.
