The 960 square kilometer Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park is the third largest game reserve in South Africa and one of the natural highlights of the country. Both parts, the northern part Hluhluwe and the southern part iMfolozi, characterize grass savannas and hilly landscapes. Proclaimed as early as 1895, it is one of the oldest nature reserves in Africa. Elephant, buffalo, zebra, impala, kudu, wildebeest, giraffe, warthog, klipspringer and also lion, leopard and cheetah live here. This makes the Hluhluwe-iMfolozi a "Big Five Park". But it is best known for its large populations of both rhino species, with a long-term breeding program in the 1950s and 1960s saving the white rhino from extinction.
