WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HLUHLUWE AND IMFOLOZI PARK?

The Hluhluwe/Imfolozi is one park, divided into two sections, the Hluhluwe and the Imfolozi.

Hluhluwe Park-Established in 1897

Memorial gate, the Northern entrance gate to the Hluhluwe section is the closest entrance to Isinkwe Backpackers Bushcamp.

The Hluhluwe section forms the smaller part of the total 96 000 hectares. It has very scenic mountainous areas.


Imfolozi Park - Established in 1895

The Southern Gate, Nyalazi gate is the entrance into the Imfolozi section of the Game Reserve.
Imfolozi has vast grasslands and open wilderness areas, which consists of 24 000 of the total 96 000 hectares.
The Hluhluwe and Imfolozi sections are rich in game including white rhino, black rhino, lion, leopard, elephant, buffalo and antelope species, such as impala, nyala, duiker and kudu.


More information about Hluhluwe/Imfolozi Park:

Hluhluwe/Imfolozi Park is situated in the heart of Zululand in Northern KwaZulu Natal. It is the province's premier BiG Five Game Reserve, and one of the largest parks in South Africa, covering over 96 000 hectares of stunningly beautiful landscape, a rich compound of misty forests, grass covered hills, dense thickets, expansive and diverse woodlands and enchanting rivers. It has the distinction of being the oldest formally protected area in Africa, and has a long and interesting conservation history.

The white rhino's close rescue from extinction is one of the great success stories of the Hluhluwe/Imfolozi Park and indeed of South African wildlife conservation. In 1895, with only 20 southern white rhino surviving on earth, and these in Hluhluwe/Imfolozi Park, the species' survival was dire, and provoked the urgent proclamation of the Hluhluwe and Imfolozi game reserves today known as Hluhluwe/Imfolozi Park.

Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park is home to the largest populations of white and black rhino, in Africa, approximately 1600 white rhino and 450 black rhino. It is from this gene pool of animals many other parks in Africa have been restocked with rhino. 

Also known as a "Big Five Game Reserve" the park boasts black rhino, white rhino, leopard, lion, buffalo and elephant. Further to the chance of spotting these magnificent animals, you may also see blue wildebeest, hippo, crocodile, warthog, hyena, wild dog (endangered species), giraffe, zebra and many species of antelope including the graceful "nyala", common to the area but rare in other parts of Africa. Do not miss out on this one!
