Big game is restricted to Buffalo and Hippopotamus and predators include Hyena and Leopard.There are two National Monument sites within Lochinvar: Gwisho Hot Springs where animals come to lick the salt deposits from the sulphurous spring water, and Sebanzi Hill which is the site of an iron-age village with dramatic views over the surrounding flats and thick bush.Lochinvar is a peaceful park far from any madding crowds, where you share your safari with the local people, who also play a role in this eco-system and support themselves by fishing from a mokoro.
