Hilltop Camp -
Winner of the British
Airways ‘Tourism For Tomorrow Award' is a very affordable
option in the Hluhluwe Game Reserve in Kwa Zulu Natal.
Beautifully set on the summit of a forested hill, Hilltop Camp offers fine views of the surrounding countryside.
The camp, the oldest in KwaZulu-Natal,
was extensively rebuilt and
enlarged in the early nineties, and today accommodation at Hilltop
ranges from a luxury lodge to a variety of superbly appointed
self-catering accommodation facilities.
A forest trail is available to guests at Hilltop. Hlaza Hide has been
developed at the site of the old summerhouse in Hilltop Camp and it
will shortly incorporate a waterhole with soft lighting at night to aid
The Reserve is at Hluhluwe some 3 hours drive from Durban along the North Coast.
The nearest town which has a full range of services is Hluhluwe which is 25
kms away from the Reserve.
All units are serviced daily. From the bottom of the price range up,
facilities include: twenty 2-bedded rondavels with communal ablutions
and kitchens; seven 2-bedded and twenty-two 4-bedded self-catering
The Twenty 2-bedded chalets, which are not self-catering, are within
close proximity to the main reception area, are what we recommend.

lounge decorated with photographs and memorabilia of the history of
Hluhluwe, as well as a gift shop and convenience store.
