Hluhluwe Backpackers is set up in a very peaceful environment, surrounded only by a few Zulu huts in a distance and the hills of the National Park. We are the closest spot to the Hluhluwe/Imfolozi National Park. Just a stone throw away (1.5km), we call our neighbours the Big Five. Enjoy a stunning 360 degree panorama view onto the hills of the game reserve and into real Zululand. At night time you will hear the giggle of the hyenas in your ear and the glittering African stars and sky over your head.
