Highly recommend the Hitgeheim Country Lodge! It is absolutely gorgeous, and Archie took such good care of us during our recent stay. We felt so pampered. The Lodge and entire reserve is incredible. In addition to the view, the gardens, patios, and decks were beautiful. The rooms were luxurious and comfortable, and the food was amazing!! I can't imagine staying... More

Hitgeheim Country Lodge's overall experience just isn't that great. Altough the location of the lodge is nice with a beautiful view over the surroundings, it comes with some drawbacks. 1st: You have to drive ca. 5km on an unpaved and very rough dirt road to get there, this takes you 15-20 min, because you can go only very slow. 2nd:...

The staff especially Kay and Michael were very attentive and helpful. The food was outstanding. We had a guided tour of Addo but if I was to go again I would self drive as this would give... More

Hitgeheim Country Lodge is perfectly situated on the top of a hill overlooking a citrus valley. Furthermore it is not far from Addo Elephant Park. Nature and game lovers will appreciate the place. The service provided is excellent in particular by Kaye who unfortunately seems to be leaving the place after 3 years of valuable service. The game drive to... More
