Hlane Royal National Park is a modest conservation area which was previously a private hunting ground of the Swazi monarch. It covers 300 square kilometres of lowland bushveld to the west of the Lebombo Mountains, with hardwood forests, open grasslands and shallow pans. The park contains a good range of wildlife including southern white rhinos, elephants, giraffes, wildebeest, impalas and zebras. It is the only wildlife area in Swaziland to contains lions and cheetahs. The park is ringed by fences, surrounded by sugar plantations and bisected by the main road, but is pleasantly quiet, with a low number of largely self-drive visitors.
Bhubesi Camp is set in the northwest of the reserve, overlooking the Umbuluzana River. It comprises six self-catering stone chalets, with private kitchen facilities and electricity.
Guided vehicle safari, walking safari and mountain-biking safari are usually available.
