I got charged by lions on a walk there in 2001, March.

A hidden treasure that is I tell you all.

Researching some history now, as Natal Parks was there before Sanparks, very interesting. If you can find the book, "The conservationists and the killers" anyone.

One of the oldest KZN Parks, and is a real treasure for birders. I did my first Impala capture in Ndumo, long before the use of nets etc. We used to ride on the back of Land Rover bakkies at night, freeze a herd in spot lights, dive out of the Landy and tackle them carefully. They then had their legs bound with nylon ladies stockings and loaded onto another vehicle. One night of capturing and you had more scrapes, cuts and wounds that Bakkies Botha after a good game. (Very late 50's early 60's)
