About Hlane Royal National Park

Hlane Royal National Park, held in trust for the nation by His Majesty King Mswati III, is situated in the vast bushveld expanse of eastern and is Swaziland’s largest protected area. Hlane Royal National Park is home to the largest herds of game in the Kingdom at Ndlovu Camp. Hlane, named by King Sobriquet II, with its adjacent dispersal areas covers 30 000 hectares of Swazi bushveld, dominated by ancient hardwood vegetation. Hlane is home to lion, elephant and white rhino, with an abundant and diverse bird life, including the highest density of nesting white backed vultures in Africa.

There is an open-air restaurant and a game-viewing deck where one can sit back and enjoy the view of the waterhole – a perfect place for sundowners, tasty meals and relaxation. Try your hand at tracking the spoor of water buck or even elephant or rhino. The guided walking safari with a Swazi field guide and an inquisitive ostrich or two accompanying you is probably one of the most exciting activity at Hlane Royal National Park. These activities are conducted from Ndlovu camp and often bring the walker into close contact with elephant and white rhino as well as a variety of other game.

A network of self-drive game-viewing roads criss-cross the park’s flat terrain, weaving between the 1000 year old hardwood vegetation and shallow pans which attract great herds of animals during the dry winter months. Guided walking safaris, mountain biking and game drives in Hlane's open Land Rover's are also available. Head for the bush and experience the sights and sounds of Hlane with the roar of Hlane’s lions – the symbol of royalty and the pride of Swaziland.

We stayed over for one night only at Hlane, but would certainly stay longer next time. We stayed in the Bubezi camp, lovely in the middle of the bush, clean and comfortable with a lovely view of the river.

We had an excellent stay at Hlane Royal National Park! The house was neat and clean with plenty of room. We enjoyed the romantic atmosphere of lantern lit pathways. We had plenty of good sightings of wild life in an unspoilt environment. Will definitely be back!

The park is very good for rhino viewing.Bhubesi camp very tranquil.Restaurant was over-priced and reception tried to charge us more for our accommodation than the fees we'd been quoted when we booked.

Everything was neat and tidy. All staff were helpful and friendly. The Bubelezi camp rondawels are about 10m apart, but in the advertised picture they seem more secluded. All guests should be warned to take enough drinking water. The water at Bubelezi is not safe to drink. The closest shop is at Ndlovu which is half an hour's drive. Please put up no noise signs at Bubelezi. Had neighbours who were playing loud music and others who were exceptionally roudy. B1, B2 and B6 are the more secluded choice. We'll visit again but only stay for 1 or 2 nights. The roads on the western side are very overg...
