We booked a morning game drive at this farm! We had an amazing guide Jean who was very knowledgeable! We chose a very hot day so the animals were hard to find. Jean certainly did his best to find as many as he could and we had an awesome time. We had lunch when we returned to the lodge which...

Spacious, well equipped comfortable room, international power adaptor (but no safe). Good food and excellent service. The game viewing was well organised, and unbelievably good. Wi-Fi unreliable except in main building.

Just left Hlosi Game Lodge with our 3 boys aged 15,14 and 10 after the most magical holiday which far exceeded all our expectations. Following a long flight from the UK its proximity to Port Elizabeth was a bonus. From the moment we spotted Hlosi nestled into the hillside it didn't disappoint. The accommodation was immaculate and the staff were...

Friendly and welcoming staff. Small lodge which has an almost homely feel about it. Fantastic room and awesome Game drives. Food was served in just the right portions. Game viewing was a real treat. Water pressure in the shower was slightly low, but not a major concern.

Having given, in other reviews, vote 5 to nice places, for consistency the lhosi lodge should deserve 7. Needless to stay on the details, I will only say that everything was wonderful and being the only guests of the hotel made us spend two days as kings. Probably one of the best places I have stayed in my entire life....
