Yesterday's slow pace is just a memory - a 4 hour drive from Durban is St Lucia estuary. We arrive at Amazulu lodge, put our bags into the room then sprint down the jetty for a boat trip. Davide is almost left behind when he rushes back to fetch the camera tripod.
The boat trip is well worth the journey. We soon see hippo nostrils peeking out from the river. Then shortly afterwards we cruise past an unnervingly fast crocodile - apparently the crocodile is not really pushing it, either.
