Hluhluwe/Umfolozi Game Reserve

This KwaZulu-Natal Safari Park was proclaimed as a protected area in 1895 together with St Lucia making it one of South Africa's oldest game reserves. The corridor between the two parks was proclaimed a game reserve in 1989 thereby linking both reserves to form the Hluhluwe/Umfolozi game reserve of some 96,000 hectares in size.

The park as become famous for the conservation of the Black Rhino and the White Rhino, it was here that the White Rhino was saved from extinction. The park is now making extensive efforts to save the Black Rhino from the same fate, in the past 15 years the Black Rhino numbers in Africa have decreased drastically from 14,000 to below 2,000. It is estimated that almost twenty percent of the world's population of both Rhino occur in the park.

This Big 5 Game Reserve is noted for its wide variety of bird and animal life, with Lion, Leopard, Buffalo, Elephant and Rhino as well as wild dog and many antelopes that roam freely in the park.

The reserve is also reputed to have been the private hunting grounds of the Zulu King - Chaka
