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

Our family spend 2 very pleasant days in this lovely luxury lodge at the end of march. The safaris are very entertaining with rangers ready to answer any question, a lively company to chat throughout the day and with special attentions to the requests of our kids. The additional "kid-safari" (boat ride with encounter with a bathing elephant) organize by... More

We had a visitor from the USA and so we decided to surprise him with his first safari experience. We had been to Amakhala before, but not to Hlosi Lodge....wow, what a great destination. The photos on their website don't do the lodge justice, it is much better "in the flesh"! Our welcome by Robert and Nomimi was warm and... More

Our stay at Hlosi was amazing going on the game drive every morning and night seeing everything from warthogs to lions from giraffes too elephants it was simply 'awesome'. Witnessing a warm welcome when you arrive with hot wet towels and some refreshments getting the sort Flint stones feeling when you first arrive with the thatched roof lodges. I would... More

Hlosi was an excellent choice! Due to there only being a handful of chalets, the whole experience is very personal and you really get to know the staff. We were made to feel at home and treated like royalty. The amenities were just as pictured and the game drives were amazing. As someone who has been on a few safaris,... More
