Hluhluwe Umfolozi is a 96000 hectare reserve with the Big 5, previously the reserve was split is to separate parks the northern section the Hluhluwe and the southern section the Umfolozi however one can now enjoy access from either of the gates and enjoy both sides of the reserve while entering either. Hluhluwe Umfolozi can easily compete with Kruger National Park as it is incredibly scenic with rolling hills and abundance of wildlife. Smaller in size also means that can navigate the reserve easily and should one want to access both sides or more enjoy both reserves one would need at least 2 days to explore all roads and hides.
Durban is the capital of Natal and this province is particularly known for its warmer climate year round, add the fact that the province has numerous world heritage sites such as Drakensberg as well and it will make absolute sense that Durban is a easy stop over and access point from where to enjoy the great province.
