Durban Big5 Safari Parks And Lodges

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. Lion, Leopard and Cheetah are often spotted along the river banks, and close to the main camp gates. We then move on to visit to the Centenary Center in the Imfolozi side of the reserve. Here you will learn of Hluhluwe-Imfolozi’s efforts to save the White and Black Rhino from extinction. There may be animals in the ‘bomas’, awaiting relocation to populate other parks. A perfect opportunity to get even closer to South Africa’s wildlife. Begin your Big Five safari from Durban city.
