Nice to meet you…
Overflowing with wildlife, both big and small, the reserve boasts some of Africa’s most renowned animals. This includes the White Rhino, Giraffe, Wildebeest, Zebra and the majority of the antelope species. Then, there are over 450 species of birdlife, adding colour and vibrance to every safari experience enjoyed here. Ubizane is centrally located, just 4 kilometres away from the town of Hluhluwe with easy road access to the Hluhluwe-iMfolozi National Park. This makes it a perfect stop-over for the travellers that are visiting the greater St. Lucia World Heritage Site. Situated two and a half hours from Durban’s King Shaka International Airport, both local and overseas visitors can experience a real piece of Africa in close driving proximity.
Ubizane’s history goes back more than 50 years, making it one of the oldest reserves in the area as well as one of the richest in terms of heritage and culture.
The reserve was originally acquired from the local Zulu chief to be used as a cattle farm. Later, it was converted to a hunting farm and then into an eco-tourism property in the late 1960s. As a result, this rich history makes Ubizane the beautiful reserve it is today. Today, we have embarked on a brand new era with renovations and restorations to try and restore some of the former glory that has stood for over 50 years. Thanks to modern technology and the vast amount of resources available to us, this is an attainable feat. As we look towards the future, the Ubizane family are excited about what lies ahead and the chance to celebrate the legacy of our location and lodge.
