A Taste of Something Special
The reserve has a long history, established in 1895, Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park was originally King Shaka’s royal hunting ground due to its rich and biodiverse ecosystem. Sadly, the area had been subject to severe hunting first by the Zulus during the early 1800s and then by settlers from Europe and the rhino population was virtually eliminated.
Thanks to the remarkable work and dedication of rangers and the protection granted to the area when it became a game sanctuary, this amazing region began to bounce back, including the rhino population. The reserve is now home to 1200 plant species, 84 mammals, and 350 bird species not to mention fish, insects, and reptiles. This area is extremely special and is renowned for its amazing conservation efforts.
