The Big 5 False Bay is a small local municipality situated within the Umkhanyakude District in northern KwaZulu-Natal. Easily accessible off the N2 national route, it lies adjacent to the False Bay (western) side of the Isimangaliso Wetland Park ( previously known as the Greater St Lucia Wetlands Park) and is the Starting point of the MR4( (LSDI Corridor) which links Hluhluwe to Mozambique. The town of Hluhluwe, which contains the major shopping and light servicing facilities, as well as the municipal offices, services it. A large proportion of the land is used for agriculture and game lodge activities and is sparsely settled. The north-eastern parts of the municipality are occupied by fairly densely settled rural traditional communities (Makhasa, Mnqobokasi and Nibela).
