    Imfolozi Game Reserve

    Accommodation Hluhluwe

    Just to be clear Hluhluwe is a small town to the north of the game park. Hluhluwe is not the game park its a town outside the game park. Hluhluwe Imfolozi game reserve is the game park name.

    There are some marketers who are confusing people misleading. Saying that accommodation in Hluhluwe is inside the park, it is not. So just make sure, if you want to stay inside the game park and not in the town of Hluhluwe, both are fine but very diff.

    When looking for accommodation, especially in a game reserve like Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park, self catering is a great option. It allows you to be completely independent and cook your own food and braai, which can be cheaper than eating out all the time. It also gives you the opportunity to really experience living in Africa Bush, There are a few different self catering options in Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park.

    The most basic is the Rondavels witch are communal, meaning you will share toilets/showers and kitchen where you'll need to bring your own food, drink with you. There are also several self catering lodges and guest houses, which usually have kitchens or kitchenettes that you can use.
