We stayed here for two nights in a luxury room. The room was great; it was a detached thatched cottage with a balcony and outdoor shower. The bathroom inside was large and luxurious, and the bedroom was well equipped with a four poster bed and mosquito net. The staff here are incredibly friendly and welcoming...nothing is too much trouble. Especially...

The perfect start to African holiday. Hitgeheim is the place to unwind but,easy access to the "Africa Experience " We were made very welcome and the room with its views was second to none. The dining was of an exceptional standard accompanied by a superb wine cellar. A truly wonderful start to our holiday.

Really enjoyable Lodge close to Addo National Park, with excellent accommodation, food and service. Transfer to Scotia Tooth and Claw may be a bit expensive, but preferable to driving many gravel roads. Addo National Park tour from the Lodge is excellent, as the guide really knows the Park and where to find the elephants and other animals from haartbeest to...

We very much enjoyed our stay at HGL. Our luxury room (No 8) was indeed luxurious, with very comfortable bedding, a lovely bathroom (Including outdoor shower) and being at the end of the 'run' of rooms was both more private and had a corner window and balcony view over the beautiful valley below. The service was both friendly and efficient...

You have a nice view from the whole property. The staff is very friendly and helps with luggage and everything you need. I liked having...

Room was of a high standard and I could lie in bed and gaze out over the valley. Staff were all very helpful and they served a delicious breakfast with lots of local fruit. Supper was...

After 10 days of touring round this beautiful country our final destination was this quiet haven, set on a hill with a stunning outlook. The accommodation was superb, and the staff were extremely helpful, the food was delicious and our hosts were more than welcoming.

Vi stayed at the lodge for two days and found it very good for your soul and wellbeing. The last part of the drive was exiting, but we do recommend a four wheeler as the car we had. The view was absolutely stunning and we enjoyed our stay very much. All food was delicious and especially the dinner in the...
