“Beautiful reserve in northern Kwazulu-Natal ” - Nature Travel Namibia

Birthplace of rhino conservation in South Africa

Views: 503 Visited: May 2019 Reviewed: Jun 13, 2019

One of South Africa’s most beautiful and scenic reserves and the birthplace of rhino conservation in South Africa. The park plays host to one of the largest concentrations of white and black rhino in South Africa. The park has a large diversity of wildlife and carnivores are present with lion being the most common.

In my previous visits to this beautiful reserve in northern Kwazulu-Natal on the northeast coast of South Africa we have had luck with cheetah sightings and have seen the wild dogs on one occasion. The reserve is easy to navigate around and can be visited for a day trip but I would recommend at least 2 nights in the park or one can stay just outside the park. This is an ideal park to visit as part of a longer South African safari itinerary. Accommodation in the park is comfortable and very relaxing but facilities are limited and I would suggest bringing most of your supplies with you. Some of the camps have a small shop and restaurant. The Park hosts some incredible bird life, with many special and localised species possible. A visit to Hluhluwe could be include into any Southern African trip to make the wild life experience more rewarding and enjoyable.
