Hlane National Reserve, Eswatini (formerly Swaziland)


Hlane (meaning “wilderness” in siSwati) is Swaziland’s royal reserve. It belongs to the king – who holds it in trust for the nation – and keeps part of the land as a royal “Butimba” hunting reserve. Hlane features 2 small camps and 200km of game viewing roads weaving through ancient trees, some of which are over 1000 years old. Open Land Rover drives and regular guided bush walks are also available… The Park is a home to white rhino, zebra, giraffe, elephant, ostrich, crocodile, wildebeest and impala as well as small populations of lion, cheetah, leopard and hyena.
