Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Big5 Day Safari

Durban City is fortunate to have many Big5 safari parks and lodges surrounding it. Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park is one of them. An animal and bird viewers dream destination. An abundance of wildlife including Africa’s ‘Big5′, with some of the most scenic views in South Africa. Begin your Durban Big5 safari in comfort and in good hands, with one of our experienced guides. Your Durban Big5 safari with Durban Safaris will be unforgettable from beginning to end.

We leave Durban in the early morning and embark on your Durban Big5 Day safari, taking a scenic drive towards Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park. Once through the safari park’s northern Memorial Gate, we begin our game viewing, keeping a lookout out for the numerous white and black rhino for which this safari park is famous. On our way up towards Hilltop Camp we may encounter other members of the ‘Big5‘, such as lion, leopard, elephant and buffalo.

Arriving at Hilltop camp, we settle down for an optional lunch at the Mpuyane restaurant. From here we have an opportunity to take in the stunning views of the valleys below. A perfect spot to lookout for vultures and Bateleur eagles flying above in search of prey. After lunch we continue our safari game drive, on the lookout for the largest and smallest of the animal kingdom. By visiting one of the many “Hides”, we will increase our chances of seeing animals coming to quench their thirst in the hot African sun. The big cats are all found in Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park. Lion, leopard and cheetah are often spotted along the river banks, and close to the main camp gates.  Begin your Big Five safari from Durban city.
