Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park is two parks in one. The hilly Hluhluwe Game Reserve, with its riparian forest and varied terrain, occupies the northern reaches of the park. Imfolozi (also spelled Umfolozi) Game Reserve, established in 1895, is Africa's oldest game park and one of the last wilderness areas in South Africa. And while the combined size is a mere 96,000 ha, Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park has nothing to envy the much larger Kruger. This 'small' park is home to 84 mammal species, 60 types of reptiles and more than 350 varieties of birds. Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park counts all of the African Big 5 - lion, leopard, rhino, elephant and buffalo. It is the breeding bank for the world's white rhino population. Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park boasts numerous game viewing hides and variety of game viewing and wilderness activities. What's more, it's located in the heart of Zululand.
