Lifestyle Farm False Bay The Hluhluwe iMfolozi Game Park covers a combined area of 96 000ha and it was here that the white rhino was saved from extinction. A visit to this world renowned game reserve will also bring you into contact with the Big Five - lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino - as well as encounters of the natural kind with a wide variety of other indigenous game.
 The entire Elephant Coast is a bird watcher's paradise, with sightings ranging from the ubiquitous pelicans and flamingos of Lake St. Lucia to rarer locals such as Rudd's Apalis, the Pink throated Twinspot and Lemon-breasted Canary.
 
Lifestyle area Many tales are told of how the warrior king Shaka united his people - transforming feuding farmers and quarrelling cattle herders into a proud and powerful nation. The Zulu people treasure their heritage and visitors are able to select gifts and souvenirs from a wide range of beadwork, woodcarvings, pottery and basketry.

Wildlife opportunities range from privately owned parks to national game reserves, which include the Hluhluwe iMfolozi Game Park. The park covers approximately 96000 ha and was established in 1895. Operation Rhino was introduced in the 1960's, which resulted in the growth of the white rhino population in South Africa from approximately 500 rhino's in 1960 to its current capacity of nearly 6000. At least a fifth of the world population of black and white rhino are found in the park. The park is a superb wildlife haven and has a variety of species.

‘iSimangaliso must be the only place on the globe where the oldest land mammal (the rhinoceros) and the world’s biggest terrestrial mammal (the elephant) share an ecosystem with the world’s oldest fish (the coelacanth) and the world’s biggest marine mammal (the whale)’ – Nelson Mandela
 
The iSimangaliso Wetland Park was listed as South Africa’s first World Heritage Site in December 1999 in recognition of its superlative natural beauty and unique global values.

Come and experience the diverse experiences in the 10 jewels that make up the iSimangaliso Wetland Park.

The Hluhluwe iMfolozi Game Park was established in 1895, and along with the St Lucia Reserve, is the oldest formally proclaimed conservation area in Africa. Conservation in the area had been practiced prior to the formal proclamation of the area, as the iMfolozi section was previously the exclusive hunting preserve of the Zulu kings, and consequently well protected. The game pits in which the animals were trapped can still be seen today in the south of the park.

This legislation gave desperately needed protection to the areas of game country known as iMfolozi, Mdletshe, Hluhluwe and Lake St Lucia. More were to follow over the years, as a few concerned conservationists campaigned tirelessly to raise awareness, that time was running out for many species that had been hunted to near extinction.


Despite this success, the fear that a bout of virulent disease could wipe out the entire population with one deadly blow, gave birth to the plan to redistribute a portion of them to other reserves and further afield, including locations overseas.
