With so many types of hluhluwe accommodation options in Hluhluwe and Imfolozi one needs to ensure what animal species one would one like to see. For example staying in the North Hluhluwe you may encounter Rhino, Buffalo, and Elephants in Summer.

YOU CAN CHECK THAT HERE ..
Hilltop Camp offers a wide variety of accommodation options like 2 and 4-bed chalets self-cater and none. & for more of a budget, there are rondavels, small basic African huts, they are a great value.
as well as, private Luxury Lodges that sleep 8 to 9 max they are managed by Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife. There is a pool at Hilltop Camp with great restaurant and bar .
The lodges are on average smaller and more rustic than say the Kruger park & private game parks but have a more basic bush feeling like in the early 19 hundreds on safari. So for the more adventure-loving travelers or photographers, this is a better option than Kruger We think…
Some of the Luxury lodges offer private guilds find out more for bush walks and all have cook’s and are serviced daily. You can take night drives, in the parks 4×4 safaris vehicles and morning these are booked at check-in at reception. The walks are a must to get the real bush feeling of south Africa at the Hluhluwe game reserve…

The Rhino Elephants & buck had been hunted very severely and were almost all gone. Thanks to Dr. Player you can see them in the wild again today …he worked on many projects in the parks and because of Dr. Player many animals thrive here. there were many people involved in doing this with him including many Zulu’s who loved this area and wanted it kept as a reserve , as it once was 600 years before.
This area was once the hunting grounds of the Zulu Kings and nobody was allowed in to hunt, penalty was death ….
