Photographic Safaris in The Hluhluwe and Imfolosi Game Reserves
The Hluhluwe and Imfolosi Game Reserves were established in 1895, and proclaimed as game reserves in 1897, they are the second oldest proclaimed game reserves in the world. The two parks were joined together by the "corridor" in 1989. The linking of both reserves allowed for a fully functional ecosystem to take its course, and is now home to over 1200 plant species, 84 mammals and approximately 400 bird species. The park is 960 km² / 96,000 hectares. Due to the size of the protected area, logistically it is divided into two Management Sections: namely the Hluhluwe Section and iMfolozi Section, but the two sections are not separated by fences and are managed together as "one natural system."
