Only spent 1 night there but it was an amazing experience. We stayed in a rondavel, which was spacious, clean and cool, even at the height of summer. The entire area was well kept and gorgeous. The shower, toilet and kitchen facilities were clean and never too busy. The main buildings, restaurant, bar and shop were only a short walk... More

I am not usually one to write reviews but I thought this necessary due to the seriousness of the issue. We stayed at Hilltop camp the weekend before Christmas in 2014. On arrival I unexpectedly got very ill and when asking the reception staff to call the doctor I was informed that he was on holiday in Cape Town and... More

This trip we booked the Mthwazi Lodge. While this is part of Hilltop camp it is isolated and private. It is an old homestead built of stone and brick. The walls are covered with black and white photographs of its history and history of the park. The house sleeps 8 in 4 bedrooms all en suite. There is a large... More

I truly enjoyed my stay here. I picked a 2 bed Rondavel, which was more than enough for our need. Clean and comfortable. The restaurant is awesome and with an amazing view. Great place to stay for a wildlife experience without having to spend a bundle of money. The park itself I enjoyed equally as much. I have not been... More

If you are not into camping or would rather not cook your own meals, this is a great place to visit Hluhluwe Game Reserve. They have a wide variety of chalets to choose from lodges with their own kitchen to smaller round chalets that have a shared kitchen/bathroom. We stayed at the smaller chalets, which was great. Inexpensive but still... More

The park is absolutely wonderful for close encounters with game of all types. You get blasé about being very close to impala, nyala, baboons, giraffes, even rhino and elephant. We didn't see any cats on our visit, apparently as it was so dry. Hilltop is a great base, very central and with a good range of facilities. We had a... More

Had a very disappointing experience at Hilltop Camp, Hluhluwe Park . We travelled halfway around the world and spent a lot of money to stay at Hilltop with the express purpose of enjoying their early/late guided game drives and walks. On arrival we were horrified to be informed that all 6 options for the next 2 days had already been... More

We stayed in one of the 5 bed lodges for three nights. Our expectations were quite low having read some of the lukewarm comments on Tripadvisor. We were, however, very pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The lodge was great - it had a large balcony, our own BBQ, two bathrooms, and two very comfortable rooms. They also allowed us to...

Big top price room but a dated bathroom. Some small game in the camp, antelopes, vervet monkeys & guinea fowls. Not to mention the performing kitchen staff on brai night. Twin room not doubles. Happy friendly staff.
