There are many lodges around the Addo Elephant Park. What drew our attention to Hitgeheim was the promise of gourmet dinners (food is a large part of why we travel). We were not disappointed. Each night's menu was outstanding, as were the a-la-carte breakfast choices. As is the case with most game lodges, the roads to get there can be... More

A warm welcome, helpful staff, lovely food, safari visits all taken care of. Felt like a family home where we felt very looked after and comfortable. On return from a cold evening safari, how lovely to find a tray in our room with hot chocolate and biscuits. Archie was a great host - ask him about his ostrich farming days.... More

It's a lovely place with friendly and attentive employees. The food, dinner and breakfast was delicious. Something unique is the winecellar where you can choose your wine for dinner.The room was just perfect with a huge bathroom plus outdoor shower and a very comfortable bed.

The Hitgeheim Country Lodge is an eco-reserve in an absolutely stunning location. Everything is perfect about this place, the exceptionally kind and friendly staff, the boutique chalets, the exquisite food, the wonderful grounds and gardens, the wildlife, the fantastic view of the citrus plantations in Addo village. Congratulations to Archie and his super welcoming family! Thank you!

Very nice and big rooms with peaceful private veranda. Big bathroom, great outdoor shower. Enjoyed our stay very much. Game drive with Ilana in Addo National Park was one of the highlights of our trip!
