Guests staying at Hluhluwe River Lodge, on the fully inclusive package, have one guided game drive per day, to Hluhluwe Imfolozi Park, included in the tariff.
These guided game drives are conducted by an independent tour operator and not by Hluhluwe River Lodge, that merely arranges them.
Guests will be obliged to drive to the start point of the drive (this varies, but most likely to the Hluhluwe Imfolozi Park’s Memorial Gate).
This excursion is non-refundable and may not be changed for another activity.
Game drives are also available to DBB guests at an additional cost.
