Hlane means wilderness in siSwati and that is what you will find if you visit this park. The land is dominated by ancient hardwood forest and bushveld. Hlane Royal National Park is one of the biggest success stories of African wildlife conservations. It has survived a lot of human inflicted damage over the years, in the end though the nature persevered in this area. Nowadays, Hlane is home to the largest concentration of wildlife game Swaziland has to offer. Hlane Royal National Park covers 30.000 hectares of prime wilderness; it has however an extended network of roads on which self-drive safaris can be conducted. This road network enables travellers to visit every part of the park. Another way to explore Hlane Royal National Park is by foot or by mountain bike, through the excellent trails that run through the park.
Ndlovu Camp is located at Hlane Royal National Park near the main gate. This camp offers visitors a number of different comfortable huts. The rondavel huts are all ensuite and close to the watering hole where a lot of big game can be spotted. For bigger groups, there are also cottages available with space for up to eight people. Since the camp has no electricity, the rooms are lit by use of paraffin lanterns and candles. This requires guests to bring extra batteries for their equipment but also gives the camp a back to nature feeling. Children of all ages are welcome at Ndlovu Camp.
Bhubesi Camp lies 14km from Ndlovu Camp. Visitors can use their own vehicle to get there, since the roads are well maintained. The camp consists of 6 selfcatering cottages set in the pristine wilderness of Hlane Royal National Park. The cottages are built with local materials to ensure they blend in with their surroundings.

The camp overlooks the Umbuluzana River. Children of all ages are welcome at Bhubesi Camp.
