When I walked through the stone entrance it felt like home! I love the peace I feel when walking through the gardens to look over the valley. Waking up each morning to watch the sunrise from the bedroom made me feel renewed and ready for a day of adventure and learning at Addo. When we came home in evening the... More

We stayed three nights. 👍 Lovely, well-appointed room with beautiful décor and excellent bathroom and a shared terrace area. Pleasant lounge with books, and a terrace area overlooking a small pool and water feature. Super views across farmland to Addo, and plenty of bird life to watch. Pleasant and polite staff...Xholiswa, Donald and Eric in particular. Free wifi in lounge... More

Hitgeheim Country Lodge does everything to make your stay as good as possible. They try to create a luxury experience in the middle of nowhere. The rooms are really spacious, have a indoor and a outdoor shower as well as a bathtub. We had dinner on the panorama terrace at the first evening and everything we ate was good...almost too...

After a long journey we arrived at this beautiful place and were impressed about what we found. The lodge is situated close to Addo Elephant Park and hidden in a private reserve. From our chalet we had a wonderful view over the orange and lemon trees. Archie and his wife have created an extraordinary and luxury atmosphere in a remote... More

We stayed for 3 days at Higeheim during a trip to South Africa for test cricket. It is in an exceptional location on an escarpment with extensive views from all area of the Lodge. Our room gave us a 250 degree view for many miles of a range of landscapes. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful,... More

Nice rooms quite big and all comfort available. Small pool available as well. Nice dinner (extra to be paid). 45-60 mins drive to Addo park for safari and to other private reserve. They can help you organize safari if you book in advance. Little bit expansive if compared to south african average, but worth to invest the money for such... More

We stayed at the Hitgeheim Country lodge for two nights, using the place as a base to explore the region. Archie, the owner, was extremely warm and helpful and knowledgeable in all matters in the area. The view was incredible, as was the room, service and the meals. A very special place!

This is by far one of the best places I have stayed in my life. A very classy lodge with great service and superior food. The game drivers offered are outstanding. I recommend doing first the Addo Park and later the Scotia. Additionally is a bit slower and more laid back and Scotia is more action and you will mostly... More
