DAY 4 - A morning visit to the Natal Sharks Board
The KwaZulu-Natal Sharks Board is a global leader in bather protection against shark while minimising environmental impact, thus promoting tourism.
The KwaZulu-Natal coastline is the only coastline with 37 beaches equipped with bather safety gear.
With over 50 years of experience, the KwaZulu-Natal Sharks Board also conduct research projects into the biology of marine life caught in shark safety gear, and offers a public education programme on safety precautions that must be adhered to by bathers.
We do an audio visual display followed by a Shark dissection.
Now we head north to the wildlife rich area of Zululand – Albizia Environmental Camp situated on the Greater Ukuwela Conservancy.
A 1235 acre piece of land just North of Hluhluwe that is a combination of properties that agreed to drop fences to create a greater conservancy.
We called the land Ukuwela which means ‘to cross over’ in Zulu. Ukuwela is a natural jewel. The wide flowing river, fever tree forests, open grasslands, riverine thickets, and mixed woodlands, make it one of the most beautiful and diverse wilderness areas in the region.
Just like the neighbouring Phinda Private Reserve, it has the potential to support an incredible diversity of plant and animal species big and small including leopard, zebra, wildebeest, hippo, and crocodile.
