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.

We stayed in the 2bed Rondavals for 3 nights. Everything was quite clean and neat, even the communal bathrooms. I just had a bit of a problem with one of the showers (couldn't get the water temperature right) and there was one day when the men did not have any hot water in their bathrooms. We also went on the... More

We entered the Reserve, which we know ExTREMELY well, at Memorial Gate at the Hluhluwe end of the HIP. The tarmac road surface is in an APPALLINGLY potholed condition and you need to drive with EXTREME caution! Generally - follow the tracks that have been made off road surface and you will miss most of the really bad ones! In... More

A great place to come into at the end if a long day of safari. Excellent views out the back where you can have a drink. Fun restaurant and bar with knowledgable staff on the food, including park game that is on the menu. Huts are clean and comfortable enough. The camp set up and atmosphere doesn't detract from the...
