This is an incredibly scenic park with rippling hills covered in low acacia bush. The north of the park is more rugged and mountainous with forests and grasslands, while the south and west is more undulating with open savannah. Hluhluwe is a difficult word to pronounce though something sounding like “Shoushlooee” is close enough. The park contains an immense diversity of fauna and flora and is particularly famous for its conservation of black and white rhino. Hluhluwe Umfolozi is home to 1,600 white rhino and 370 black rhino – an impressive number which means you are very likely to see one or both species. It also contains the rest of the Big Five; buffalo, elephant, lion and leopard, as well as many other species including blue wildebeest, zebra, giraffe waterbuck, nyala, kudu, bushbuck, warthog, cheetah, hyena and jackal plus lots of impala.
