He tried his best to show us the animals and was very successful! After the drive we had an amazing lunch. I... More

We were fortunate enough to spend 2 nights at this amazing lodge. The Amakhala Game Reserve is breathtaking. Its the type of scenery with wide open plains, thick vegetation and a river snaking through it. Our Ranger, Ruan was an extremely knowledgeable young man with a real passion for the conservation of wild animals. The lodge itself is very peaceful... More

This was our second time staying at Hlosi and could not fault either trip. The first was just my husband and myself. The second time we were joined by my parents. The staff made us feel like family - so comfortable and welcoming. The food was phenomenal and we saw so much game. We will definitely be back!!

We arrived at Hlosi Lodge on December 7th, too late in the day to do a game drive. The next morning after coffee, we headed out and saw so many animals!

Had a fantastic stay at the lodge. The food and accomedation are very good, and the game drives fantastic. The ranger was very knowledgeable and very friendly. I would highly recommend this place. Got to see all the big 5 up close plus a lot of other Animals. Great place to do a safari. Would love to return sometime

While Hlosi is rated a 4 star lodge we certainly enjoyed a 5 star stay. The welcome was especially personal and warm. The lodge, looking out over the waterhole was private and spacious.
