We spent an afternoon self-driving from St Lucia up to Cape Vidal with many stops along the way for photo ops and a picnic lunch. This is a beautiful park with a good deal of wildlife. We saw impala, zebra, waterbuck, hippos, monkeys, spiders, kudu, crocs, warthog, bushbuck, duiker, buffalo and many different bird species. Don't miss stopping at the various lookout
points and bird hides. Cape Vidal is a beautiful beach and had we not arrived quite late, it would have been warm enough for a swim, even in late May. A half-day trip was too short for us as we did not get to drive all the routes we had hoped, next time I would definitely make it a full-day excursion. iSimangaliso is a private park so note that Wildcards are not accepted.
