Imfolozi Wilderness Trail. 2010.

For Kevin's .... birthday I booked a 3 day wilderness (walking) trail in Imfolozi Game Park, one of the KwaZulu-Natal Reserves. We'd done a similar trail about 10 years ago with Pat and Colin and really enjoyed it. You may not get as close to the animals as you do in a vehicle but you see and hear so much more.

Hluhluwe Imfolozi Park is the oldest game reserve in Africa (proclaimed in 1895) and has been running wilderness trails since the 1950s. The area set aside for the trails to the south of the access road to Mpila camp and is pristine bush which has never had any vehicle tracks. It was originally a royal hunting ground for the Zulu kings.

The trail started at midday on Tuesday and ended at midday on Friday so I also booked accommodation at the nearby Mpila camp for the Monday and Friday nights.
