OK. Kruger is bigger and has high speed roads with 54 seater buses and speed traps !! Hluhluwe/Umfolozi saved the White Rhino from extinction and, despite the efforts of International poaching operations, is determined not only to preserve the White but also the Black Rhino from extinction. These now joined Parks have every living animal thatis indigenous to the area. Elephant, Lion, Leopard, Rhino, Buffalo, African Wild Dog and all the antilope. The terrain varies from steep hills in the north to rolling open savannah in the south.
