Accommodation in Hluhluwe Game Reserve
Hluhluwe - Hilltop Camp - KZN Parks
Hluhluwe national park covers some 96 000 ha and is characterised by hilly topography. The Hluhluwe Reserve is one of the oldest game reserve in Africa. The old Zulu kings such as Dingiswayo and Shaka put in place the first conservation laws, where today the 'Big Five' of African legend roam these hilly plains.
The northern section of the park is noted for its wide variety of both bird and animal life. It is one of the best places in the world to see nyala. Hluhluwe is also known for its rhino conservation and boasts good rhino sightings.
Game viewing is the prime attraction with viewing hides overlooking pans and waterholes enabling visitors to see animals at close range. Wilderness trails are also a popular attraction in the Hluhluwe reserve.
