Hitgeheim sits on top of a plateau overlooking the orange groves so the views from the Lodge are beautiful. You can’t help but feel calm when you stay there as the ambiance is serene whilst the service is attentive but discreet.

It was for sure one of the beste lodge/hotel experiences we ever had. We stayed there on new years eve, excellent menu, very nice personal and owners who take care of you, just great! It is about half an our drive to add, but there are some nice activities offered directly from the lodge owners.

Lovely place to stay, great view, beautiful rooms, friendly, helpful staff, breakfast on the deck, various activities are optional. The only negative thing was that meals could be a long affair with waits between courses and sometimes very slow. Food was good.

When we booked Archie contacted us to arrange our safari outings and gave us great advice on what we should do and see in the 2 days we were there. It was great that everything was arranged for...

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
