The Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park is also the oldest proclaimed game reserve in Africa. Explore and Experience 96000 hectares of pure bush and wildlife. Home to the African Big 5, Cheetah, Wild Dogs, Antelope and much more. Should you be visiting KwaZulu Natal, South Africa then you absolutely have to visit the Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park.

What a funtastic day. I did the half day HIP tour with Lindor as my guide. Lindor was an excellent host, he seems to know everything there is to know about wildlife. Patient, great driving skills and he did his very best to get us some great sightings. Throw in a tasty breakfast, 4 of the Big 5 and not forgetting the little 5 Leopard Tortoise and I can say what a great experience. Definitely worth giving treating yourself. Can highly recommend Heritage Tours and their HIP safari.

Our family went on the Hluhluwe-Imfolozi half day Safari. Wonderful experience, and fortunate to see many animals including lion, hyena, elephants & rhino, as well as many birds. A beautiful reserve. Tasty breakfast. Greatly appreciated our guide John, who took the time to share his expertise & knowledge of not just the larger animals but the many birds he identified for us.
We also did a late afternoon hippo & croc tour the day before. Also very good!
Highly recommend this company.

During our recent visit to St. Lucia we booked a sunrise game drive of Hluhluwe-iMfolozi park and our guide was very knowledgeable of the animals and the park, and made our visit very enjoyable. He picked us up at our guest house and made sure we had enough blankets for the chilly morning temperatures. We spent over 4 hours exploring the park. Due to the time of year of our visit, and the cold temperatures, we unfortunately didn’t see many animals, but it was very exciting to see 2-3 rhinos quite close to the vehicle. I would highly recommend not only a visit to the beautiful town of St. Lucia but a tour with Heritage Tours during your stay.

I booked a trip to iMfolozi Hluhluwe through Heritage tours and the trip came to an abrupt end due to lockdown. They were happy to accommodate any refunds and adjustments to re-planning a trip post lockdown. they gave great advice on where to stay, where to go and what to see.

We were lucky enough to have Jason as our guide as he could answer any question we asked him and he'd tell us incredible facts about the animals. It's an early start (we were collected from our accommodation at 5 am) but is certainly worth it! It takes about 1 hour to get from St Lucia to Hluhluwe park and as soon as we arrived there we saw an elephant in the undergrowth. Jason knew where the animals were likely to be found and was very respectful to them, keeping a safe distance to view them. We saw elephants, impala, baboons, zebra, hyenas, wildebeest, warthogs, rhinos and giraffes. It was fantastic to see these animals in their natural environment. I would certainly recommend this trip to anyone visiting the Hluhluwe park.
