This was an incredible experience. Everyone was so helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. Although we were only there 2 nights the ranger did his best to ensure that we saw as much as possible. Everything was thought of and the lodges were so peaceful and relaxing after the excitement of the game drives. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this lodge to... More

I stayed here with a friend for 3 nights in August and had a wonderful time for start to finish. The location, around an hour from port elizabeth, meant time was wasted travelling to the game reserve. The staff at the lodge were welcoming and helpful, nothing was too much trouble - even researching and making ginger tea for my... More

Wonderful end to a trip down the garden route. Myself and two female friends went on a 2 day safari where we fit in 5 trips with our wonderful guide Vuyani. He was friendly and knowledgeable, making the 3 hour drives seem like no time at all. The staff in the hotel were courteous, and attentive at all times, even... More

This was the first placed we stayed in South Africa and it was fabulous! From beginning to end we were spoiled rotten. Even the rain (quite a lot of it!) could have no impact on our enjoyment of the whole experience. Food, service, staff, everything excellent. Our children have joined the JP Marx fan club - he is an excellent... More

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

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
