What makes the area so Incredible

Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park

With out a doubt it has to be the Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park. This 96000 hectare park is a Big 5 reserve, however one may also encounter other species such as Cheetah and Wild Dogs to mention but just a few. This park revived and saved the Rhinos from near extinction in the early 60's when less than 100 Rhinos roamed the earths surface.
