Braai4Heritage Tour Day 26: iSimangaliso

Zoog and me braaing prawns with a lemon, garlic and butter sauce. The pan is from his brother in Scotland.

The iSimangaliso Wetland Park was listed as South Africa’s first World Heritage Site in December 1999 in recognition of its superlative natural beauty and unique global values.

The day started off watching rhinos in the Hluhluwe Mmfolozi game reserve (and almost getting arrested for getting out of the car to film it).

The 332 000 hectare Park contains three major lake systems, eight interlinking ecosystems, 700 year old fishing traditions, most of South Africa’s remaining swamp forests, Africa’s largest estuarine system, 526 bird species and 25 000 year-old coastal dunes – among the highest in the world. The name iSimangaliso means miracle and wonder, which aptly describes this unique place.

We take a photo like this every day, to prove to you this tour is real, and that we really visit the places.

‘iSimangaliso must be the only place on the globe where the oldest land mammal (the rhinoceros) and the world’s biggest terrestrial mammal (the elephant) share an ecosystem with the world’s oldest fish (the coelacanth) and the world’s biggest marine mammal (the whale)’ – Nelson Mandela

Lake St Lucia has over 1000 crocodiles, so do not swim.

The jetty at Catalina Bay is where we braaied. This was the view.

Zoog is a legend, but his son Ty is a future braai champ and future surfing world champ.

Thanks St.Lucia Tours & Charters (, 035 590 1259) for the boat trip. If you want to see a lot of hippos and lots of nice birds, call them.

    […] braaied (fried) vegetables, prawns, or anything else to small to comfortably braai on a braai grid. We very successfully used such a pan during the Braai4Heritage Tour on the day in St Lucia, and since then I’ve been on the lookout for one. So I acquired a few of these pans (they are now […]
