Hluhluwe-Umfolosi Game Reserve (Hluhluwe, South Africa)
Hluhluwe-Umfolosi Game Reserve was established in 1895 and is the oldest Game Reserve in Africa. It was originally two separate reserves (Umfolozi and Hluhluwe) which were set up with the main objective to protect the endangered White Rhinoceros. Today the park covers an area of 960 km² (96,000 hectares) in South Africa’s central Zululand. It is the only park in KwaZulu-Natal where all five species of Big Game (Lion, Elephant, Buffalo, Leopard and Rhinoceros) can be found and due to its conservation efforts the park now contains the world’s largest population of White Rhino (approximately 1,000 individuals). The park includes two large rivers with a flood plain and the Hluhluwe dam that creates an important habitat for birds, insects and plants. Within the Hluhluwe-Umfolosi Game Reserve there are several tourist camps, which are placed at strategic locations on the hilltops. A boat provides regular trips on the Hluhewe dam twice a day.
