After your guide collects you from your Durban Hotel/B&B or Guest house he will take you on a educational 2.5 – 3 hours drive to Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game reserve – The oldest game reserve in Africa established in 1895. Points of interest like the History of Durban, KwaZulu Natal and South Africa are covered as well as different population group and how the came to be in South Africa. There is special focus on the Zulu Nation the major Black African tribe in the area as well as the different crops we come across on route to Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game reserve.

Cat Rehabilitation Centre (optional)

Before we get to the game reserve we will make an hour and 15 minute stop at a Cat rehabilitation center outside Hluhluwe. This is an amazing place where there are trying to get these endangered wild Cats back into the wild. There are 4 Species of Cat; the Cheetah, Serval, Caracal and African wild cat. We get to interact with them hands on. The cheetah being the most special as it is a large an intimidating cat. Always good for a new Facebook profile picture!

Once we have enjoyed the interaction with these majestic cats we move on to the World acclaimed Hluhluwe Imfolozi game reserve. We enter at the North eastern gate and make our way to the lodge of Hilltop camp where we will be spending the night. On route we will stop to enjoy the animals we can find.
