CONSERVATION SHOWPIECE, THE BIG 5 AND CAPTIVATING AFRICAN CULTURE

Home of South Africa’s oldest game reserve

Hluhluwe, the name derived from uMhluhluwe – the thorn of a creeper which is abundant in the area – Dalbergia armata or thorny monkey rope.
Located in the heart of Zululand, Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park is South Africa’s oldest proclaimed game reserve.
It was procaimed in 1895, a few years ahead of the Kruger National Park.

The Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park is so named after the main rivers traversing the park, namely the Hluhluwe and iMfolozi rivers.

The 950m2 Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park is the genetic home of the southern white rhino and is a world famous ecotourism venue.

The Park hosts vegetation that ranges from semi-arid to mesic savanna as well as megaherbivores such as elephant and giraffe; and carnivores such as lion and cheetah.
Game viewing is the principal attraction in the Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park. Africa’s ‘Big Five’ (lion, elephant, leopard, buffalo and rhinoceros) stalk this flourishing savannah.

One of the unique features of the Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park is its research station where collaborative efforts are made towards conservation in the area.
