Overview

Set out on a day-long safari from Durban to the Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve, one of Africa's oldest nature reserves. It's also home to the world's largest white rhino population, a species once on the brink of extinction. Once here, you'll embark on a closed vehicle game drive in search of Africa's 'Big Five,' along with other animals such as cheetahs and hyenas. Scan the waters for crocs and hippos, and keep an eye (and an ear) out for birds like the colorful little bee eater and the Klaas's cuckoo.

    Sad that we only got to see a few animals. No Rhino or Lions. Don't think this is the best park to visit if you want to see these animals.

    A superb day all round. This company is a subsidiary of a much bigger well renowned organisation and you could tell. Air conditioned Mercedes van was punctual and had plenty of room for our group of 16. Our tour co-ordinator was accompanied by a driver who got us to the game reserve efficiently and safely. The location required an early start at 6.30 am for the 2.5 hours plus journey including comfort breaks each way Upon arrival our group was divided into two as we transferred to superb off road vehicles each specialist guide acting also as driver. These guides and vehicles belonged to the tour company not the reserve and they were the best of the many we saw during the day. Our guide was superbly knowledgeable of the reserve and kept in close contact with other guides by radio to ensure that we managed to see as many animals as possible. We managed to see 4 of the big five apart from a leopard as well as baboons, zebras, impalas, the bonus being an energetic dung beetle! on occasions, animals were very close, particularly an elephant and a herd of zebras grazing beside our path. Altogether a long day lasting a little over 12 hours but nonetheless memorable in numerous ways. Highly recommended!

    This was an excellent trip our Guide, Jan Jordaan ,was very knowledgeable - there was plenty of room in the vehicle as there were only 4 of us - we left the hotel at 6.15am and returned at 7.30pm. The whole time we were absorbed in the wonderful scenery and the animals - we saw many elephants, rhino, wart hogs, baboons, giraffes, Cape buffalos and the crowning moment - just as we had given up was a pride of lions - we can honestly say it was a wonderful trip.

    My Husband (30) and I (24) from Germany had a wonderful day in the Hluhluwe Game Reserve. In the park we saw crocodiles, giraffes, elephants, warthogs, rhinos, buffalos, zebras, several species of monkeys, spiders, snakes and birds. The guide knew exactly where to find the animals, it was great. Also the driver from Durban to the game reserve was very nice. He was a zulu man and told us so much about the zulu culture. The Lunch at the Lodge was also very nice, we were able to choose from the whole card of the restaurant. We had a wonderful day.

    After seeing the Serengeti and Masai Mara, it was a bit disappointing, but the long ride to and from Durban cuts into the best viewing time. Should be a two day trip. The Driver did his very best and can only be commended.

    Thierry G
    , Apr 2012
    This gamme reserve is a lot more rugged than Pilanesburg. And much further from Durban than Pilanesburg is from Johannesburg. So we got back almost at 8.30 pm after leasing at 6.30 in the morning. The guide was well intentioned but like most guides they are on a mission to spew all they know! Had to reign him to the job at hand several times. Did not see many animals. Worth doing if spending a night there!
