Additional Hluhluwe Umfolozi Park Information
The Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Park was opened on the 30th April 1895, however, the Hluhluwe and the Umfolozi were separate parks at that stage. The corridor road was established in between the two parks and persons wanting to visit both parks had to drive all the way around to access a different gate. This no longer exists and today clients may enjoy both parks from either side.
The Hluhluwe Umfolozi Park is also rich in history and can firmly state that their actions in-game capture and wildlife translocations saved both the Black and White Rhinos from near extinction in the '60s.
