From the minute we arrived we felt like we were at home. Peter our guide was awesome & so was Charl the waiter. But a special thank you to Archie the owner who is a gentleman & a fantastic host. Thank you for making our honeymoon special. Eric & Inge-Marié

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!

room, service, food, facilities - everything was excellent! A charming place It is not far from Addo Elephant Park Main Entrance; the last kilometers before you reach Hitgeheim Country Lodge are very bumpy, but it is well signposted where to go.

The location and amenities are incredible, the rooms are romantic and very clean. Archie's daughter who received us was very helpful and took good care of us. We arrived late but we could enjoy a gourmet dinner. The day after we did the safari with Peter (a wonderful guide) at the Addo Elephant Park, we had a lot of fun... More

9 of us recently stayed at Hitgeheim for a week-end and truly had a marvelous time! The service, staff friendliness, cleanliness, tranquility and not to mention the spectacular views, were outstanding. The rooms and bathrooms, opening up onto outdoor patios, were lovely and so spacious! Dinner and breakfast was a feast. I thought we were in paradise. Would love to... More

We had the most wonderful time - in 2007 - and it is still the place we talk about as being pure luxury, relaxing and friendly. We even named the puppy we got on our return to the UK after Thembalani, one of the waiters. This has to be one of the most special places anywhere in the world. If... More
