The best stay we've ever had! The customer service was fantastic and the staff was so helpful. Given the current circumstances many resorts service bland and average food however the food here was beyond amazing! The facilities were great and the place itself is so beautiful. I would stay here again every opportunity I get!!

We had a wonderful stay at Hippo Hollow. Our first day there we were blessed enough to witness both a group of elephants and two hippos. The accommodation itself is very clean and had a beautiful balcony to enjoy the view with. Small details were missing, for example a plug to charge our phones / laptops next to the bed would have been nice and the bedding wasn't very warm, considering that we visited during winter. Other than that the staff was very friendly and there are a few restaurants close to the estate which were really nice. Over all we really enjoyed our stay and will happily stay there again!

we really enjoyed our time at Hippo Hollow. The staff has been super kind and professional, preparing a special welcome to us in the room as we were just married. Atmosphere is very relaxing, you can enjoy breakfast looking at the river and if you are lucky spot some Hippos. The night was amazing, there has been a dance show from locals dancers and amazing special food options like Crocodile and Worms. Everything was super fresh ! Just a paradise in the middle of south Africa ! very recommended!

Located in the Hippo Hollow Country Estate on the outskirts of Hazyview the property's restaurant is a charming place with a terrace overlooking the Sabie river. Lunch was rather unique and mouth watering (particularly the dessert). I do strongly advise anyone to have a meal there if you happen to be in the area.
