There were Nyala and their young right by our chalet, plus the Samango monkeys all around. The chalet itself had beautiful finishes and the dinner staff were extremely entertaining and the food was good. There were Lion close to the camp that we saw on a lovely night drive hosted by Vusi. A must stay if one is in the... More

We booked in at Hilltop Camp for 2 nights. The self catering 2 bed and 4 bed chalets were basic but adequate. Breakfast was included which was very good with plenty to choose from and to suit every palate. We also had a meal in the restaurant one evening which was also very good and we were entertained by the... More

Instead of going to expensive private parks in the area, it is much better to benefit from the great accommodation facilities to the Hluhluwe national park. Standards are very good with spacious rooms and clean bathrooms, braai area and access to a big swimming pool. There is also a decent restaurant for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They also offer other... More

My bungalow was very comfortable and the separated WC and shower facilities were enough to spend a night during my visit to the amazing Hluhluwe Umfolozi Game Reserve. I had my own car so I got here close to sunset and with previous booking, I was given the last of their bungalows. Breakfast was one of the best of my... More

We were only here for Christmas Day but had the opportunity to take a walk around and speak to others who were staying here for longer periods over Christmas lunch. Spectacular location overlooking the vast game park with wildlife on the doorstep. We had Christmas lunch, which was beautifully (and very reasonably) catered, served by a wonderfully enthusiastic, spirited team.... More

We entered at memorial gate and took the gravel road to Hilltop. Roads were fine for a compact car and are being repaired. Immediately saw zebras and rhinos. Evening and early am drives gave us a chance to see lots of animals, no big cats, but it's really just luck with that. Guides were friendly and informative. Only 6 of... More

When we arrived at reception, we were told there was no water in the rooms. They provided us with a large bottle of water but did not offer any discount for the conditions. The only saving grace was the beauty of the park and the animals. At no time were we approached by management who, in my opinion, didn't really... More

Awesome self-catering chalet, comes with breakfast. Separately, they offer a buffet option for supper at R185 per person. Game drives at sunrise or sunset sunset at R325 pp for 3hours. Wasn't lucky enough to see any big cats but it's beautiful scenery. Apart from the national drought problem that affecting the quality or water in the toilets and showers. Awesome... More

Really nice place with an amazing view from the huts and the restaurant. Our hut was well maintained and in good condition. Unfortunately the shop wasn't well stocked and as drinks only water or beverages were available. The stuff at all wasn't really friendly and helpful but that was like last time we where there. So we expected this.

The park is wonderful and we would recommend the game drives. The central reception and restaurant are lovely and well maintained. Staff are very helpful and service in restaurant excellent. Some of the houses are dated and the one we were initially offered was shabby with broken tiles, a broken window and loose electrical wires in several places. This is... More
