Hluhluwe Imfolozi


... is located in the Elephant Coast area of the Natal region in South Africa.

Originally a hunting ground for the great Zulu chief Shaka, Imfolozi was gazetted as far back as 1895, making it the oldest wildlife reserve on the continent.

Now combined with neighbouring Hluhluwe, pronounced "shesh-luwi", the combined entity comprises 100,000ha, which is about 5% the size of Kruger.

There is a really interesting range of environments, including substantial sections of sub-tropical forest, populated by a full range of wildlife.

All of the accommodation facilities are operated by the parks authority, with total visitor numbers restricted to five hundred people at a time. Whilst the desire to moderate traffic flows is highly commendable, it is worth noting that this level represents about ten times the guest density that one would expect in high quality private area.

Guest numbers are swelled further by day visitors from private reserves in the St Lucia Wetlands area to the east.

Hluhuluwe Imfolozi is very popular with local residents, but is far less attractive to international visitors who are more likely to be drawn to higher quality and less busy areas such as Phinda.
