Our thoughts

Nyalazi Camp borders the legendary Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa.
The campsite is located just 3 kilometers from Nyalazi Gate, the middle entrance to Hluhluwe iMfolozi Park. It is a community driven camp and everything is very clean and well maintained. The campsites have wonderful views and overlook the hills of the Hluhluwe Game Park.

Nyalazi Campsite Review

A stay at Nyalazi Camp is an experience that will leave an indelible mark on your memory. It’s a place where you can witness breathtaking sunsets, create magical moments by the fireside under a sky adorned with stars, and truly immerse yourself in the untamed beauty of Zululand, with the opportunity to encounter extraordinary and iconic wildlife. The staff at Nyalazi Camp are not only welcoming but also incredibly attentive, going above and beyond to ensure your comfort and satisfaction. Even when unexpected rain poured down while we were out, they promptly took care of our belongings, ensuring that our chairs and other items were sheltered from the elements.

The campsites and ablution facilities are meticulously maintained, with a dedicated team ensuring cleanliness on a daily basis. During our stay, we were fortunate enough to be the only campers at Nyalazi, and this solitude added to our sense of security. The staff, who remained on the property around the clock, made us feel completely safe and at ease throughout our time there.

To make your visit to the reserve more cost-effective, we highly recommend purchasing a wild card, which grants you access to the reserve and its wonders. This investment will not only save you money but also allow you to fully appreciate the natural splendor that Nyalazi Camp has to offer.

We absolutely love Nyalazi Camp, the ultimate choice for your stay while exploring Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Game Reserve. Just minutes away from the Nyalazi Gate, the sites offer breathtaking views of Hluhluwe. While sipping a drink taking in the stunning sunsets, and enjoying game viewing right from our camp chair with the warm glow of the campfire. It’s an experience we didn’t want to miss.
