March 2015 was my second stay at Hitgeheim (July 2012 was my first). It is simply beautiful, with some of the finest views, accommodations, and food I've experienced in my many travels. Hitgeheim is well worth the money because of the wonderful owner, the caring staff, and the small touches that make it such a gem. Plus, the owner will... More

Hitgeheim Country Lodge is a very relaxing accomodation for a reasonable price. Keep in mind that it is close to a national park (Addo). When people write in a review that the "road" from the main road to the lodge is a imposition they don´t know that this road is not a private road and only 6 month a year... More

We booked a 3-night safari. Good hotel, you get what you pay for. Super luxurious rooms that were cleaned twice a day. The outdoor shower was actually amazing to shower under the stars! The safaris was perfectly organized. A tiny lunch for long days, so bring some extra if your big in food. The staff were wonderful. We went running... More

The room was large and comfy, with a great view over the valley and an very spacious bathroom. The common areas, both inside and out, had a great view. Even better, however, was the friendliness, openness and competency of Richard, Patsy and Tabbie and the Archie the proprietor. They were helpful, they were interesting and they were fun. If you...

My boyfriend and I just got back from 5 nights at this lodge. We can't say enough positive things about our stay. The owners are personally involved in the the day to day operations. Beautifully situated overlooking the fruit orchards and mountains. We arranged transfers and tours through the hotel. Our accommodations were spacious and wonderfully appointed. Food was excellent.... More

i have stayed here twice now. Both times with overseas business guests and Archie and his team did not disappoint. They went out of their way to make sure everybody had a good stay. During one stay Archie organised an evening game drive in the Addo, which went down very well with the overseas visitors. The rooms are thatched lodge... More

The room we stayed in was very nice, luxurious, and African, The team was very helpfull to guide us towards the safaris. This was good fun. Relying on their services is more costly but gives you quicker access to things and brings you safely home in the dark.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two-day stay at Hitgeheim and wished that it could have been longer. Our room was excellent with a beautiful view, dinner was delicious and the staff and the service which they provided were first class. The organisation for the excellent game drives worked very well.

We stayed for 2 nights to visit Addo Elephant park and Stochia game reserve. The drive to the lodge is over an unpaved road through the estate of the owner. The lodges are nice, big and clean. Very good bed, big bathroom with shower and bath and minibar. No TV or wifi. The chairs outside on the veranda were the... More

The accomodation and location of Hitgeheim is top notch. We loved the room and the terrace and outdoor shower was a fantastic addition. The staff are really great and attentive and made us feel very at home. The luxury of the accomodation was unfortunately let down by the quality of the food at the restaurant. The evening meal was really... More
