blue-rhino

Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park was proclaimed as South Africa’s first game reserve in 1895.

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.
