it's a great place - superb rooms, lovely food, really nice staff. And so many animals to see. But for us, the real star of the show was our guide, Vuyani. Highly informed and passionately committed to the sustainable future of the estate, he was a really great guide who went out of his way to help us enjoy the... More

We felt very welcome from the moment we arrived at Hlosi Lodge! All the staff is very helpful, smiling and friendly, a special thanks to Mimi who was very attentive for the children and offered flexible solutions where parents on holiday look for! Our ranger Vuyani was very dedicated and warm hearted, we saw a lot of animals (giraffe, elephant,... More

Hlosi was our saving grace, we were a honeymoon couple and had been placed on a different resort whose standards were not up to scratch! Luckily for us we were eventually moved to Hlosi and wow what a difference in standards. We had a very warm welcoming with two staff waiting at the door with drinks, they organised for our... More

We spend three nights at Hlosi in the end of december. The main building was in clean condition and all the people were very friendly. Our game rides were great and we saw four of the big five. The food was also very good and there was nothing to complain about except the cleanness and maintenance of the room. We... More

We had such a good time here. It was perfect. So well set up for kids - from the staff, to the playroom, to the bags of goodies they got given on arrival, to the snacks on each game drive. Robbie looked after us so well and jacques, our ranger, was awesome; Great with our kids and no question couldn't... More

We had the pleasure to stay at the Hlosi for one night in Dec 2014. The lodge is lovely- beautifully decorated, well maintained, and great service. Robbie handled all of our lodging needs, and our Ranger, Jacques was very knowledgeable and personable. We enjoyed our game drive immensely and were fortunate to see 4 of the Big 5 in the... More

We stayed at Hlosi for 3 nights and it basically made our entire holiday! Driving through the front gate of the huge 7000 ha Amakhala reserve we already saw two giraffes walking by. The staff at the lodge provided us a warm welcome, serving drinks, making fire and showing us around. The main lodge with a bar, cosy fireplace with... More

Hi Cornelia thanks for this amazing review of our lodge! It sounds like you had a fabulous time from the moment you drove into the reserve. I hope you enjoyed your personal greeting from the giraffes, they're a friendly bunch, aren't they? So glad you loved all the small touches in and around the lodge. It's not hard to create... More
