stayed here for 3 nights during an organised tour of South Africa and we wish we could have stayed longer. The location and accommodation are fabulous with very spacious rooms which are very tastefully furnished, a very powerful shower and exceptional food. The staff are so very friendly and helpful as well. Hippos actually come out of the water at... More

Hippo Hollow is well run, well laid out, very clean and with a very attentive staff. We stayed for 3 nights whilst taking safari trips into Kruger. The Hotel is just 15 minutes from the main gate. We were met on arrival by reception staff and were very well taken care of. The accommodation was of a high standard and... More

Because I arrived after dark and left before dawn, I can't really comment on the grounds or the overall look of the hotel. But my room #66 was comfortable with 2 twin beds pushed together, big clean bath, good lighting, ceiling fan, TV. The beer in the bar was cold and the kudu steak dinner in the lovely restaurant very... More

Hippo Hollow delivers! I stayed at the facility as part of a Kruger National Park tour arranged in Pretoria. Located just outside Kruger, the accommodation was excellent, the buffet-style restaurant offered a selection of very good food at both breakfast and dinner. The kudu sausage available at the "Boma" was superb. The highlight, of course, was the nightly arrival of... More

Hippo Hollow was exactly what our family was looking for. With a planned safari at one of the private game reserves awaiting us, we were looking for some place nearby that would give us the feel of the adventure we were on, while still providing us access to much of the activities and beauty of the surrounding Npumalanga area. The... More

We visited Hippo Hollow for 2 nights during our roundtrip through NE South Africa. Ideal connection if you plan to visit Kruger as well as the Panorama Route! We stayed in a hotel room; these are perfectly placed in a square surrounding the pool, fringed by sunbeds & parasols. Breakfast was adequate though not special, for diner the menu is... More

Stayed as part of honeymoon for safari. Excellent service and welcoming staff especially Aubrey who made our stay very comfortable going the extra mile to take care of us even when we came down with the flu! Overall enjoyable stay that helped our safari experience extra special.

We had such a wonderful time at Hippo Hollow. Everything was well prepared on arrival and the staff were friendly and helpful. Special mention goes to Sipho who was so accommodating and made everything a great experience! The dinner was also excellent and the grounds were just beautiful.

Well placed for exploring and visiting Kruger. Good food and drink; reasonable prices. Use Wally for a microflight and also the local Elephant Whispers. A night safari to Sabie is a must and an early morning Kruger safari. Watch out for hippo's on the lawn at night and croc's on the banks of the river.

The staff were very friendly and well prepared for our visit; slight changes to rooms were immediately and professionally dealt with; the rooms are exceptionally appointed and clean with everything working; the showers are the ultimate! The food tended to be fairly average, though, and I would have liked to see more variety. The hotel is a mere 15minutes from... More
