We stayed in a self catering chalet at Mpila... perfect place. Clean and comfortable. Saw so much game in the area. Really loved our stay and would definitely go back. The chalet was also well priced.

Games Reserve is a must when you visit Hluhluwe. We saw so many beautiful animals. You have to follow the map route or you will miss out on seeing all the animals.

Stunning park. Roads in good condition. Saw very little animals. Would recommend that you rather go to hluhluwe. No place to hv lunch in the park and staff were super unfriendly.
