Hlane Royal National Park, one of Swaziland’s top wildlife sanctuaries, has been visited by the great explorer Kingsley Holgate.

(TRAVPR.COM) UNITED KINGDOM - June 21st, 2013 - Hlane Royal National Park, one of Swaziland’s top wildlife sanctuaries, has been visited by the great explorer Kingsley Holgate.

Hlane has the largest herds of game in the Kingdom and encompasses 22,000 hectares of north-eastern Swazi bushveld dominated by ancient hardwood vegetation. The reserve is home to 4 of the Big 5: Lion, Elephant, Rhino, and Leopard amongst a whole host of other species such as Hippo, Giraffe, Crocodile & diverse game.

The visit by Kingsley Holgate, one of Africa’s most colourful, modern day explorers, was to discuss Swaziland’s anti-poaching methods with the Big Game Parks’ CEO and pioneer of the conservation in Swaziland, Mr Ted Reilly. Ted is the man responsible for saving over 22 species from local extinction in Swaziland. Kingsley is described as a humanitarian adventurer, but is also an author, TV Personality and fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. Getaway Magazine calls him their Explorer in Residence, the most travelled man in Africa.

Swaziland’s track record for Rhino protection is almost unbeatable. In the last 20 years there have only been two Rhinos poached from the country. This has been put down to an effective preventative anti-poaching approach, which is lead right from the top – The King’s Office and delegated to Big Game Parks.

Hlane Royal National Park is managed by Big Game Parks (BGP) which plays a big part in the protection of Rhinos, through management of the Swaziland Game Act and CITIES. BGP, a non-profit trust, manages Hlane and two other reserves; Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary and Swaziland’s premiere and award-winning wildlife sanctuary, Mkhaya Game Reserve. Located less than 1hr drive away from each other, the area is easily-accessibly for tourists wanting to visit more than one place. A wide range of activities, accommodation and dining options to suit all budgets and preferences are available within the reserves.
