Hlhuluwe-Imfolozi Safari Park

Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park


Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park is South Africa’s oldest safari park, established in 1895. Once used by the great leaders Dingiswayo and Shaka for hunting. Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park is situated 280km north of Durban, and is 96,000 hectares in size. This safari park is home to Africa’s ‘Big5′, and numerous other mammal and bird life species. Famed for its success in bringing the Black and White Rhino back from the brink of extinction in the 1950’s and 60’s. Due to the efforts of Operation Rhino, Hluhluwe-Imfolozi now boasts the largest population density of Rhino than anywhere else in the world.

Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Big5 Safari Park

The Hluhluwe part of the reserve has many sweeping hills, with beautiful panoramic views of the valleys below. Make your way up to Hilltop camp and there is a good chance of encountering Elephant wandering along feeding on the trees that line the road. A great place to spot Leopard due to the perfect cover the thick brush and trees provide for hunting. Relaxing around the pool during hot summer days, one will have the opportunity to catch a glimpse of the rare Samango monkey, and the numerous bird species such as the Yellow Billed Hornbill.

In stark contrast to the Hluhluwe side, the Imfolozi part of the reserve is more flat and open. Here the larger herds of grazing Buffalo and Wildebeest can be found. Lion, White Rhino and Hyena sightings are common. Centenary Center is where you can see first-hand the parks efforts during Operation Rhino. There may be animals in the ‘boma’s’ awaiting re-location to other wilderness areas to replenish depleted stocks. A perfect opportunity to get up close to some Africa’s most revered animals.
