Proclaimed in 1895, it is also the oldest game reserve in Africa. Initially two separate reserves, they were joined to create a single 94 000 hectare reserve which is home to one fifth of the world’s black and white rhino population. It was here that the internationally acclaimed Operation Rhino started in the 1960s, successfully capturing and relocating white rhino to havens within South Africa and abroad. As a result, this country’s white rhino population is now 12 times the 1960 count of 500.

The Hluhluwe–Imfolozi Park was the first reserve to introduce walking safaris and its Wilderness Trails are internationally renowned.Plett ensures a wonderful and exciting holiday that has the best of both water and land activities. 11 Day Cape Town, Durban and Surrounds Package offers you the wildlife experience you deserve.
