Full Day Hluhluwe Umfolozi Safari

We spent a month in Z A and the full day safari with David comes close to being our best day there. He shared just the right amount of information about different wildlife habits, lingered long enough for everyone to get photos and to explain why some of the things we saw were so special and why other things were more day to day habits. One highlight was watching a Cape Buffalo giving himself a mud bath! The small size of the vehicles provide a good viewing spot no matter where you're seated and the lunch was yummy. Book early!

Full Day Hluhluwe Umfolozi Safari

We really enjoyed this Safari. One of the reasons was our guide David. 
We saw so many animals, some we have not seen on previous Safaris, but above all, we were thrilled by the knowledge and way of explaining things from David. 
He shared many stories and combined them with facts. Perfect!
A real gem for us and a must do in our perspective.

What an incredible day in Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Reserve. So many adrenaline fueled moments, so much excitement, so many memories!

Zayne was attentive to our needs throughout the day and made the whole safari viewing experience a very special one. As a wildlife photographer, I am quite demanding on positioning etc, and our guide Zayne was exceptionally patient and professional throughout.

Frequently Asked Questions

If you love the outdoors, wildlife, and incredible scenery then you will most definitely love a Safari into the Hluhluwe Game Reserve. 

The Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park is the largest and most well-known game reserve in KwaZulu Natal. With astonishing history and wildlife join us on Safari. 

Both Hluhluwe Park and Kruger Park are incredible parks to visit. Rather try to visit both.

  • Hluhluwe Park is a smaller Park, however, this means that the wildlife is more concentrated and one should have a better opportunity of witnessing more species in a smaller amount of time. 
  • Kruger Park is massive and any visit to the park we would suggest would require a longer duration.
  • Any day in any Game Park is truly magnificent.  

This is one of the most asked questions, Lion sightings vary during the year and yes Lions do migrate within the Hluhluwe Imfolozi Park. 

We would suggest that you head down towards Sonthuli loop in the lower Imfolozi Park. This area has always been an amazing area for Lion sightings.
