The oldest proclaimed nature reserve in Africa, Hluhluwe–Imfolozi Park, formerly Hluhluwe–Umfolozi Game Reserve, is known for its rich wildlife and conservation efforts. The park contains diverse flora and fauna and, due to conservation efforts, now has the largest population of white rhinos in the world.
In addition to rhinos, the park is home to the rest of Africa’s “Big Five” -- elephants, Cape buffalo, lions and leopards. It is one of the world’s top spots for viewing nyala, and other species found in the park include blue wildebeest, zebra, giraffes, warthogs, cheetahs, baboons, monkeys and a variety of tortoises. The park also is and home to 340 bird species and one of the only areas in South Africa where yellow-throated, pink-throated and orange-throated longclaws can be found together.
