WHAT TO DO
Inside Kuleni Game Park there is a lovely network of walking trails to enjoy across the 200 hectares. There are hidden bird hides, benches to relax on under the trees, and ample opportunity to walk next to the antelope and ungulates that live with us. We have no predators in Kuleni so its safe to walk freely directly from the deck of Imani Bush House into the park.
Maps of the walking trails are available for you to use during your stay.
Further a field, there is plenty to do and see in and around the Kuleni area including being only 30 minutes from Hluluhwe-Imfolozi Big Five Game Park and Phinda Private Game Reserve. Click the links below for more info on attractions, restaurants and activities for your stay with us.
