What a great experience. Me and my wife visited Entabeni 15 years ago and stayed in the Wildside camp when it was still fenced off. This time around we went with our girls(10 & 8) and we all enjoyed it immensely. The food was great, the animals plenty and our ranger Amos made it even better with his personal connection... More

This was my second visit to Hanglip lodge in Entabeni Reserve. Again a brilliant experience. We were only there for 2 nights, but we managed 4 game drives in that short time. Each drive is between 3 and 4 hours long. There are not a lot of places where you can spend almost 8 hours per day on a Cruiser... More

If you are looking for a true African experience I would highly recommend Hanglip! We were here as part of a marathon group but I feel the experience would still be just as amazing if you were here for a holiday. The staff including chef Grace and Cassius provided meals that never left you going hungry. The rangers Ephraim and... More

We enjoyed our stay. Our facilities were 1st rate. Our lodge was beautiful and very comfortable. Our meals were excellent and the staff was excellent in every way. My only criticism is being charged for water ordered during our meals. The game drives were a little disappointing for us, although our ranger, Jacob was excellent, caring, very knowledgeable and also... More

I decided to spoil my fiance for his birthday by taking him to Hanglip Mountain Lodge on the Entabeni Game Reserve.

We stayed here for the last 3 days of our recent trip to Africa. We had last stayed at Hanglip 5 years ago and we weren't dissapointed on our return. Hanglip is an amazing game lodge and we love the fact that it is unfenced allowing for up close encounters with the animals. There is nothing quite like sitting on... More
