Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve – 3 Day Tour

Our 3-Day/2-Night Hluhluwe Imfolozi Safari Tour started with a late pickup just outside of Durban near the town of Margate. My two guests and I only hit the road at about 1:20pm and so I figured we’d only get to the park at about 5pm, turns out we got there a little earlier at 4:30pm. And lucky for us, some unofficial greeters hung around and welcomed us into the park!

It’s quite alarming the way in which the early pioneers and settlers of Durban and KwaZulu-Natal went about decimating the local wildlife during hunting trips. In his notes of 1886, John Dunn enthusiastically describes hunts where he ‘bags’ numerous rhino, sea-cow (hippo), lion and of course all manner of buck; and that’s just Dunn, not the other members of his hunting party; in one memorable hunt he mentions “bagging” twenty-three (23) hippos before lunch! Elephants were common place in early Durban days, but the demand for “tuskers” from every quarter, British, French, Portuguese, Zulu, meant that it was only a matter of time before “extinction” became a watchword with many African wildlife species!

We’re lucky that today that game parks like the Hluhluwe/Umfolozi Game Reserve exists not only for conservation, but also to educate.
