Location: Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park, covering some 96 000 ha, is an amalgamation of the former Hluhluwe and Umfolozi Game Reserves in KwaZulu-Natal province, South Africa.

Hluhluwe, set in the heart of Zululand, was established in 1895, making it the oldest game reserve in Africa. Game viewing is the prime attraction and the "Big Five" - elephant, lion, rhino, buffalo and leopard - are resident in the park.

Imfolozi, the southern component of the park, lies west of the town of Mtubatuba. Larger mammals to be seen include buffalo, blue wildebeest, zebra, giraffe, and elephant. In excess of 300 species of birds have been recorded.
