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 daughter (25) and I spent 4 nights here at HLosi...it far surpassed what we were expecting. The entire staff was incredibly sweet and cordial and none of it was forced..truly a lovely experience. The days spent out on the range with our guide, Vuyani (hope I spelled that right!) were fun, educational and exciting. He brought us to soooo... More

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

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.

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
