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

We had the most excellent stay at Hitgeheim. The staff and Archie, the owner are very friendly. What we appreciated most was how welcome our kids were. We never felt as if they were not welcome and Archie especially aways tried to make them happy! The rooms are spectacular, the view is stunning, the food is great, what more can... More

nice staff, beautiful view with sunset, near Addo Elephant Park, you can organise the safaris your self or with the hotel. there is nothing around the lodge so it's better to have dinner there, 2 menus to choose of.

We stayed at Hitgeheim Country Lodge for three nights and enjoyed our stay very much. Everybody was keen to help us wherever they could to make our stay comfortable and pleasant as possible. The rooms are clean and nice and we had a stunning view from our private terasse.

We stayed here for 2 nights so we could go to ADDO elephant park. It took about an hour to drive here from PE airport and the lodge was easy to find. The lodge is on a ridge so that it gets fabulous views of the surrounding countryside (lots of fruit farms) and views to the mountains to the north.... More

We have visited Addo area quite often and normally do self catering. As this was a special birthday occasion we decided to book at Hitgeheim and be spoilt and we were! Hitgeheim has the most wonderful views of the Sundays Valley from the rooms and also from the lounge and dining area. The rooms are surrounded by the natural vegetation... More
