Hlabisa Local Municipality

Hlabisa Local Municipality

This municipal area is 100 % rural and consists of four traditional areas. Hlabisa is located in one of the world’s richest and diverse tourism areas. This municipality has a major draw card in the tourism industry which is the Hluhluwe-UMfolozi Game Reserve, located 280 km north of Durban. It is also the oldest proclaimed park in Africa where all the big five game occur. In terms of Tourism, the municipality is aiming within the next five years to capture a greater share of the African leisure market, exploring options to integrate cultural tourism. Most importantly, the vision is to halve poverty by 2015 and this will be done by encouraging the municipality as a vibrant gateway to the Elephant Coast and Hluhluwe-Mfolozi Game Park, improved service delivery and sustainable local economic development.
