Hilltop Resort at Hluhluwe Game Reserve in KwaZulu-Natal – A Family Favourite

We recently enjoyed a few days at Hilltop Resort in Hluhluwe Imfolozi Game Reserve in KwaZulu-Natal. Renowned for its incredible view and thriving wildlife population, Hilltop did not disappoint.
Our favourite was the Umbhombe Forest walking trail around the outskirts of the resort. We saw so much game on that trail that we didn’t even need to go on any game drives!
We loved the safari night drive (where we had an extremely close shave with a very angry male rhino) and saw many of the larger animals on our self-drive safaris.
Hilltop gets five huge thumbs up from Chasing the Rainbow family travel blog! We hope you enjoy the short video.
