Hluhluwe 2 Day Big 5 Safari - Highlights

The Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Park is the largest park in KwaZulu Natal covering an area of 96000 hectares. The park is home to the African Big 5 (Rhino, Buffalo, Elephant, Lion, and Leopard) as well as Cheetahs, Wild Dogs, and numerous other wildlife species.

The Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park is the oldest proclaimed game reserve in Africa and is rich in history from when the Game Capture department themselves saved the Rhinos from near extinction or when King Shaka himself used the lower Umfolozi as his personal hunting grounds.

This park is truly an icon and well worth a Full-Day Big 5 Safari.

The iSimangaliso Wetland Park is South Africa's very first world heritage site, your Full-Day exploration tour includes game viewing and snorkeling in a protected bay at Cape Vidal. This Big 4 Park, unfortunately, does not include Lions, however, you do have a better chance of witnessing Leopards in this park.
