Welcome to Mbuluzi

Welcome to Mbuluzi.co.za my personal blog and a place where I can vent! My name is Nuwan Mbuluzi and I originally come from Swaziland. I grew up close to the Mbuluzi game reserve with the same name. As such I used to visit there when I was young and I have developed a love for wildlife, especially big game. There is nothing better in this world than spending time in a game reserve with the days driving around looking for animals and the evenings spent in a tented camp with all of my family. I have many fond memories of those years, but, now I love spending time at the Kruger National Park in the holidays as I work in Johannesburg and it only takes a morning to get there.

Another passion of mine is bird watching, Africa is perhaps one of the best place in the world to be if you are an avid bird watcher. There are so many birds to see and even if you spent a lifetime looking it is unlikely you would ever see them all! This is interest was spawned from my Father who spent most of his down time bird watching at Mbuluzi and he always said there was nothing more relaxing than spending time in the reserve in the peace and quiet.

Golf is my sport of choice as I grew up playing at the Royal Swazi Sun which is probably the top course in Swaziland. If you are ever in the country then make sure you squeeze in a round, it has some spectacular scenery and makes for a challenging day out in the fresh air. Recently, I setup a golf simulator at home to help me improve my handicap. If you are struggling with your golf then this has to be the best way to improve it as you can spend time in the evening and over weekends when the weather is not good sorting out your swing!

I hope to get back up to Swaziland in 2014 to relive some of the old memories and I will post some pictures here of my trip which will involve a few days of golf and then a trip to Mbuluzi game reserve for some well deserved rest!

I found this clip on Youtube of a Crocodile eating a Warthog at Mbuluzi reserve, check it out below.
