Given that this region of Zululand has become a major tourist attraction, Hluhluwe village has become an important staging post for visitors to the area. The N2 highway passing through the region makes for easy access by car and the Hluhluwe air strip further facilitates access to the many attractions Northern Zululand has to offer.

In addition to the Game Park, private game reserves and wilderness trails that characterise the region, the diver's haven of Sodwana is within a comfortable distance of Hluhluwe, as is St Lucia Wetlands.

"Zululand Wilderness" is an apt description of the area surrounding the village of Hluhluwe. It is also the title of an enchanting book by the well known conservationist Ian Player, (brother of golfer, Gary), written to celebrate the life of Qumbu Ntombela, a Zulu game guard and tracker who along with the author and other leading figures, was instrumental in the creation and development of the world renowned Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Game Park.

The legacy left to the world by those who fought tirelessly and often thanklessly to preserve this tiny part of our planet as a sanctuary for the wildlife that tourists can now enjoy is priceless.
