Great location. Loved the fact it was close to Durban - took less than 2hrs from the airport. Liked the dirt roads and local feel. Accommodation could have been better, but it is fairly remote. all in all, great.

Although we did not stay at Hilltop camp but in Gqoweni bush camp, the eight of us had a super time from walking in the bush at 06.00 in the morning, to the many drives through the park to view game. Ranger Guy was knowledgeable and friendly. All in all, a wonderful 4 day stay.

The location is outstanding with wondrous view on the hills, the cottages are perfect for this setting, restaurant is good and breakfast OK. It can be crowded with visitors at times. Our only problem was the quality of the rangers; the one did not see a rhino standing less than a meter away, the other lectured us for 2 hrs... More

This is not far off my idea of heaven. There's a real feeling of serenity at the camp, with an abundance of wildlife all around. There are braais around if you want to cook and some decent food in the restaurant. Quiet, basic and basically everything I look for in a site!

Like other reviews, we did have some issues with the workers at the front gate of the reserve. We hired a private driver to bring us from the Durban airport to the reserve, and he managed to speak with them, but we couldn't understand what they were saying except the part where they were all very obviously laughing at our...

Good road from the airport to this facility. Make sure you have money for the toll gates, they do have change but it just slows you down. There are lots of speed traps along the way. Once you get into the park the roads are quite poor, lots of pot holes and animal dung. However this just serves to slow... More

Beautiful location but why didn't the huts have a key? Can't be that expensive to buy keys to the huts. Had to share toilet/shower with other people, luckily we were there during low season. If we wanted toilet/shower the price would be double. As far as we understood they only served buffee. We found this place a little bit overpriced... More

This is a spectacular setting with magnificent views of Hluhluwe/iMfolozi. We were in a two bedded chalet which had everything we could wish for. A well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds and televsion with good reception. The restaurant serves buffet style meals which are fairly basic but more than adequate but the view and setting more than make up for it.... More

We had an incredible stay at the Hilltop camp in the self catering rondavals. The Rondavals, were well equipped with kettle and fridge and very clean. They were also very cool, with a ceiling fan that worked very well. The breakfast that was included by the resort was absolutely amazing and such a treat when you came back from an... More

We were there recently after 2 year and there are some improuvements: Rooms have been repainted and are not so dark and gloomy as before, linen in better and much new softer towels, 2 people at the reception desk and you are not ignored till the 2pm check-in time. We saw so much on our own that we did not... More
