A more rustic and adventurous park. most of it runs on solar power and generators lanterns and firelight. These are for the  wilder traveler at heart, often at night hyena come right into the camp.

The mpila accommodation are ensuite and have full kitchens. They are pretty basic but provide all you need.

The camp only offers single beds and the game park is very strict about occupancy in the units,

Cell phone dont work well in the camp. There are always staff around for your needs.

You need to be more prepared when staying at Mpila Imfolozi, make sure to bring all needed supplies.

Check twice three times.There is no restaurant Like Hilltop.

A small shop with basic foodstuffs, like bread/milk/frozen meat and sometimes ice & firewood,

but it's really best to buy on the way to the game park,

They often run out of supplies so please make sure you bring all you need.


It's a popular place with the local south Africans. All the accommodation at Mpila is self-catering ...

There are no game fences, around the camps so be careful Definitely no wandering off .. This park is full of animals.

Its one of the main reason it's so popular, out of all the Big5 game parks in South Africa.

Mpila Camps have fire pits for cooking outside and sitting back watching the stars and feeling the amazing wilderness.

When Lion's roar, you will never forget it, as it vibrates through you.

Makes you feel so insignificant.

There is much more to Imfolozi and Hluhluwe than the Big 5 we all want to see, Like many endangered animals, The Honey Badger, Wild Dogs and so much more to name just 2..

The bird Life is out of this world if you are into birding, bring the longest/fastest camera lens you can afford. Bigger is diff better when it come to wildlife photography LOL.
