In the heart of the Elephant Coast
The Hluhluwe Country Cottages are located in the heart of the Elephant Coast region of KwaZulu-Natal, on a farm 1km outside of the well known agricultural and tourism hub of Hluhluwe village. The cottages are situated on a game fenced sanctuary bordered by the Ngweni River. Take a walk on the game farm where you can find some of the antelope species such as Common Reed Buck, Nyala, Impala and Red & Grey Duiker. A portion of the farm has been set aside for the cultivation of mangoes and also accommodates the world-renowned Ilala Basket Weavers, which includes a Zulu Artifacts Museum, Crafters Village Art Gallery and an A La Carte café.
Hluhluwe is situated between iSimangaliso Wetland Park and Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park on the banks of the Hluhluwe River, an area known for its national parks, natural diversity and cultural heritage. The variety of habitats within the area is one of the reasons why it is one of the prime birding destinations in South Africa. The Hluhluwe River Flood Plain is one of the only areas in the whole of South Africa where Yellow-throated, Pink throated and Orange throated Long Claw species can be seen together. Timber, sugar and pineapples are intensively grown in the area which produces over 90% of South Africa’s queen pineapples. A big area surrounding the Hluhluwe area is also made up of cattle farms and game farms.
Each bedroom offers en-suite bathrooms with either a shower or bath option and double or twin beds. The rooms are air-conditioned with tea/coffee making facilities.
The self-catering option includes an open plan lounge/dining/fully fitted kitchen. DSTV and braai facilities are available. We provide towels and all bedding and the rooms are serviced daily. There is ample secure parking on the premises.
Explore the Wildlife
Hluhluwe is an ideal place to explore the nearby Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve.
It is here that the White Rhino was saved from extinction.
A visit to this world-renowned game reserve will bring you into contact with the Big Five as well as encounters of the natural kind with a wide variety of other indigenous game.
Being based here at Hluhluwe Country Cottages offers a convenient base for day trips to St.Lucia and Cape Vidal or north to Sodwana Bay and Mkuze Game Reserve. The World Heritage site of the Greater St.Lucia Wetland Park boasts five distinctive eco-systems, ranging from sub-tropical seas to grassy plains. It is also home to some of the highest vegetated dunes in the world.
The entire Hluhluwe region is a bird watcher’s paradise, with sightings ranging from ubiquitous pelicans and flamingos of Lake St.Lucia to rarer locals such as Rudd’s Apalis, Pink-throated Twinspot and Lemon-breasted Canary.
Zululand is the traditional home of the amaZulu, a proud nation descended from the Nguni people who migrated to this rich land during the 16th Century. The Zulu people treasure their heritage and visitors are able to select gifts and souvenirs from a wide range of beadwork, woodcarvings, pottery and basketry.
