Umfolozi is apart of the Kwazulu-Natal Park system and is located 15km West off of the N12. It is about 50 Km North North-West of Mtubatuba and about 80 from St. Lucia. It is really one park with Umfolozi to the South. Both are connected by a corridor so the animals can move freely between both parks. Here you kind find wildlife in a beautiful landscape. The best part about thereserves in Kwazulu-Natal are the game hides. They are the best in South Africa and quite possibly the best in Africa (Quite a daring statement I know).
These parks are particulary known for their populations of white rhino and wild dog.
I like Umfolozi slightly better than Hluhluwe, although I saw spectacular sightings in both. Umfolozi has a more varied terraine and the hides are nicer.
You are so close to the animals from the hides, it is easy to great photographs from the comfort of your cushion.
Definately check out the parks in Kwazulu-Natal if you are at all interested in birds. The variety here is good and hides let you get close.
St. Lucia Resort makes a great base for visiting Hluhluwe as well as other reserves in the area. Check out the following links for more information.
