We spent a very pleasant three days at Hlosi. The staff were welcoming, professional. The accommodation is comfortable; the outlook from the rooms really lovely; sunny quiet spot to watch birds and enjoy the nature. Our game ranger was knowledgeable. We'll be back!

This was the first time at a game reserve for three out of four of us, and, to a person, we loved it. Hlosi has a wonderful staff who spoiled us. We very quickly got used to the hot towels upon return from game drives, being fed first-second-and-third breakfasts (like "The Hobbit"!), the "tea" (read: more food) at 2:30 before... More

The accommodation is spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The staff are incredible friendly and accommodating. The ranger was experienced and knowledgable. We had a wonderful experience and would definitely return.

Came here with some friends in June 2015. We spent 4 full days and had the best time. The staff at the lodge are incredibly friendly and helpful. The food is delicious. The huts are very comfortable with a great back porch and wide open view. We saw the "big 5", I still don't know how our ranger was able... More

Excellent food, great service and an awesome Safari experience. We could not have asked for a better experience. From the moment you arrive you get treated like royalty. It was like a South African tourism add being checked into your room with a giraffe strolling past your room and warthog having a drink at the watering hole. The evening after... More

What an awesome kids friendly hotel, the personal attention we and our kids received did surpass our expectation. I can highly recommend a visit to this lovely small lodge. They only criticism might be the bungalow style rooms but even with that it was such a fun and relaxing stay.

My girlfriend and I had a lovely time in Hlosi. The quality of food, accomodation and service is incredibly good! Every game drive with our ranger J.B. were a superb experience. His in-depth insights of the nature and animals are really distinct, and all the wildlife anekdotes made us completely forget our everyday life at home. Highly recommendable!

We spent 3 full days at Hlosi with our daughter (2), two friends and their two children (4 and 1). My final comment to my wife just before we left was that we may have just found a place that is more convenient and a lot more relaxing than our own home. Parents with young children will know that that's... More
