Untouched by mainstream tourism, the Hluleka Nature Reserve welcomes guests to its seaside solitude and lush coastal forests as its backdrop. Offering hikers and outdoor enthusiasts with a treasure trove of escape set amidst prolific wildlife and birding, the area makes for the best of both beaching and outdoor adventure fit for young and old. The accommodation at Hluleka is superb – seven chalets with exquisite views situated on a small hilltop covered in old indigenous trees, striking orange strelitzias and grassy areas where Burchell’s zebra roam and graze.
