A day on safari in the magical Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park doesn’t stop at the thrill of searching for the Big Five, but the hilly terrain offers spectacular views of the Reserve and your camera is going to love it. Once on the high ground there are amazing panoramic views that give a sense of the openness and beauty. We’ve arranged lunch at the lofty Hilltop Camp (or similar ) and it will give you a chance to check how close your bird count has come to the 425 listed bird species in the Park.

Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park is Kwa-Zulu Natal’s pride and joy and after your visit, you’ll understand why.

Please note: Optional open safari vehicle game drive is available at a surcharge – please enquire for rate and availability.

Cruise Ship clients: The Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park is a 3,5 hour drive each way from Durban so is best combined with your stop into Richards Bay port, which is only 90 minutes from Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park. Most cruises include a day stop here.

What Clients’ Say

We really appreciate our clients feedback on their African Blue experience as we are constantly striving to improve our service levels and selection of tour and safari experiences.

We had a full-day (12 hour) tour. It was very convenient in that we were picked up from our Umhlanga hotel. Barry was extremely informative, not only about the wildlife, but about many various aspects of South African culture and history. The safari itself was exciting and fun. The day was the highlight of our trip.
