Hilltop Camp is situated on the summit of a forested hill offering fantastic views of the surrounding countryside.
The camp, the oldest in KwaZulu Natal, was extensively rebuilt and enlarged in the early nineties, and today accommodation here ranges from a luxury lodge to a variety of well appointed self-catering facilities. All units are serviced daily. From the bottom of the price range up, facilities include 20 two-bed rondavels with communal ablutions and kitchens, 7 two-bed and 22 four-bed self-catering chalets. Twenty 2-bed chalets, which are not self-catering, are within close proximity to the main reception area. This area includes an a la carte restaurant, an attractive pub and lounge decorated with photographs and memorabilia of the history of Hluhluwe, as well as a gift shop and convenience store.
A forest trail is available to guests at Hilltop. Hlaza Hide has been developed at the site of the old summerhouse and will shortly incorporate a waterhole with soft lighting at night to aid game viewing. The big five - lion, rhino (black and white), elephant, buffalo and leopard - are all to be seen in the park, as well as a variety of other species, including cheetah, wild dog and giraffe. It is also one of the best places in the world to see nyala.
