We have done safaris in East Africa so this was a different type of experience. Instead of broad vistas and Savanna's, this is hilly bush country. We saw the requisite number of big mammals including Cape Buffaloes, lions, Rhinos etc and enjoyed the views.
Photos are tough without big lenses because you are not allowed off road but as is the case in every safari, it is the joy of the "hunt".

We went as a group to do the 2 nights, 3 days short wilderness trail in the park. On the drive to the Mpila Resort starting point we saw rhinos, elephants and zebras alongside the road. From Mpila we went further into the park, to the starting point of the trail. We crossed the river twice without shoes (a little scary as our guide pointed out crocodile trails!) and got to our base camp. The tents provided are excellent, as is the cooking by the chef - the bush bread on arrival each afternoon was fantastic.

We would highly recommend the wilderness trail - we saw loads of rhinos, buffalo, giraffe whilst walking around with our guides. The guides were excellent at spotting the wildlife and explaining features and plants. Sleeping in the tents at night was an incredible experience, hearing lions and hyenas walking near the campsite was scary, but completely amazing!

We had a game drive in the park starting from noon.
We did a game drive at the Kruger earlier this week, and there we saw the big five. So I though how can Hluhluwe be better? But it was!! --> read more.

We started at the main road, but after 10 minutes we took a small side road, where we saw a large variety of animals:

A family of warthogs playing in the mud, a group of zebra walking around,
Some rhino hiding behind the trees, birds flying around.

And suddenly our jeep had to stop and we had to be quiet.
A herd of buffalos was crossing the road! We counted more than 50 of them! Amazing! (see pictures).
When the road was clear, we commenced our game drive.

We had to drive many kilometers before we saw some wildlife again. Then we had a stop at the top of the mountain and commenced our search again.

We had given up our hopes to see elephants, but our driver did his best! We saw a small group walking in the distance, too far away to go by jeep.
The driver was returning to the entrance, because it was getting dark, but then it happened! We saw a large group of elephants drinking at a pool of water. AMAZING!
(see picture, I resized the picture for the protection of the elephant, so the location is unknown.)

We discovered the park with our own car and spent the whole day there. It was a wonderful experience and we saw loads of animals just next to the road and only some meters away from us: Rhinos, Elefanten, Giraffes, Buffaloes... it was a cloudy day beginning of December and not many guests were there so that we met only some cars once a while. The views are absolutely stunning. The main roads are paved but for the gravel roads a car with high wheelbase or a 4x4 is recommended.
