About Us

Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park is one of Africa’s oldest wildlife reserves famous for saving the Rhino species from extinction. It remains the best place to have close encounters with both Black and White Rhino in Africa. Visitors to the region are often faced with the choice of staying within the park’s large 250 bed state run Hilltop Camp or in a private lodge outside of the reserve.

Managed by a young team of friendly hosts, chefs and enthusiastic field guides, our aim is to offer guests a comfortable stay with a great wine list and excellent cuisine.

Hluhluwe River Lodge is situated just 25 minutes from the Memorial Gate entrance and offers daily morning, evening and full day guided trips into the reserve. We offer an intimate and personalised lodge experience for 24 guests in a beautiful location overlooking Lake St Lucia. Also on offer are a variety of adventures such as horse riding, scenic mountain bike trails, hikes, boat trips and a unique cultural tour on quad bikes.
