Walking Safaris in Hlane

Hlane offers guided walks which are all guided and conducted outside the endangered species area. This type of safari will take you along roads, game paths and through the bush. You will spend 2 hours walking quietly through the bush, with heightened senses. The slow pace allows you to discover some incredible scenes, making the experience truly memorable. There are Game Walks or Bird Walks available and the chosen type will dictate the area of the park you will visit.

The recently introduced Mahlindza Dam Walk will see you circumnavigate the largest and busiest water source on Hlane, amid mature trees rich with birdlife. Transfers to and from Mahlindza can be pre-arranged.

Bottled water is included in our Guided Walks. Minimum age 13 years.
