Hluhluwe – Umfolozi Game Reserve
We begin the day early, embarking on a game drive in the Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Game Reserve. The park boasts the biggest white rhino population in the world. Returning to the lodge in the early evening, we freshen up and board a boat to enjoy a delightful sunset cruise on the St Lucia Estuary.
Set up in 1895, the Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Game Reserve remains the oldest game park in all of Africa. The Park spreads over approximately 96,000 hectares and boasts a wide variety of wildlife and vegetation. It is specifically well-known for its conservation of masses of endangered black and white rhino. The remainder of the Big Five can also be spotted here: buffalo, elephant, lion and leopard, as well as plenty of other species including Blue Wildebeest, zebra, giraffe, waterbuck, nyala, kudu, bushbuck, warthog, cheetah, hyena, jackal and countless impala.
