Safari in Hluhluwe-Umfolozi National Park
Hluhluwe-Umfolozi is one of the largest game reserves in the world, and is home to a huge concentration of wildlife. About 40 years ago, the world-famous Operation Rhino was launched here to save this species. Thanks to this, today the territory of this park is home to more than one-fifth of the world population of the rarest black and white rhinoceroses. The park covers an area of 96,000 hectares and is the fourth largest nature park in South Africa.
The protected area is home to more than 80 species of mammals - African elephant, black and white rhinoceroses, lions, leopards, buffalos, cheetahs, antelopes, giraffes, African wild dog, hippopotamuses, spotted hyena, warthog and many others. More than 300 bird species have been recorded in the park, including the silver eagle, night heron, Shelley's hawk, bustards, Claas's bronze cuckoo, crested barbet and others. We hope to meet, if not all, then most of the inhabitants of the African savannah.
Our team has traveled a lot to different national parks from Namibia to Kenya and knows how to visit such places correctly: to take beautiful photographs and get a dose of adrenaline from the process of tracking animals. No local rangers or established routes! We only have cars, walkie-talkies and enough time to search.
A distinctive feature of the Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Park is that, on the one hand, it is relatively easy to visit, and on the other hand, the animals are in truly natural conditions. These are not nurseries, which are more like zoos. This is real wilderness. We cannot guarantee encounters with all local species, but we promise vivid, memorable emotions. Success depends on your own observation, perseverance and luck.
