Mpila Umfolozi Game Park
Mpila, In the Umfolozi game park the southern part of the 2 game parks Hluhluwe/Imfolozi, Is a more rustic adventurous park. most of it runs off solar power and generators lanterns and firelight. These are for the wilder, traveler at heart.
You need to be a bit more prepared when staying at Mpila Umfolozi, bring all needed supplies check twice three times.There is no restaurant Like Hilltop so come prepared.
There is a small shop with basic foodstuffs, like bread/milk/frozen meat and sometimes ice & firewood but it's really best to buy on the way to the game park,
They often run out of supplies....
There are quite a few options here, Like Safaris Tents 2,5,and 7-bed chalets. + Some higher end Luxury Bush Lodges, basically a complete home away from home. It's a very popular place with the local south Africans. All the accommodation at Mpila is self-catering ...
There are no game fences, around the camps so be careful Diff no wandering off .. This park is full of animals, The main reason it's so popular out of all the game parks in South Africa.
There's a lot of Big 5 here, All the Camps have fire pits for cooking and sitting back watching the stars and feeling the amazing wilderness. When Lion's roar, you will never forget it, as it vibrates through you, make you feel so insignificant in their world.
There is much more to Umfolozi and Hluhluwe than the Big 5 we all want to see, Like many endangered animals, Honey Badgers, Wild Dogs and so much more to name just 2..
The bird Life is out of this world if you are into birding, make sure to bring the longest/fastest camera lens you can afford. Bigger is diff better when it come to wildlife photography LOL.
