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

Hanglip Mountain Lodge has beautiful rooms, the staff are friendly and is set in a wonderful location in front of a dam at the foot of the mountain. We had elephant come and visit and hippo's wondering past in the distance, Impala grazing on the grass outside the room on the way back from supper and fantastic wildlife sightings on... More

Private game reserve, this lodge is one of a few in the area, really comfortable, great food, atmosphere and outstanding ranger made this a fantastic stay for us over Christmas.

We´ve been for two nights in the lodge. The food was excellent and the chiefs fantastic. There is a lot of wildlife around the camp, but we haven´t seen too much on the game drive. Disappointment was that they charge for a tiny drink at the sun downer game drive. We also agree for saving water, but unfortunately in our... More

We had a truly wonderful experience at this lodge, so well located with wildebeests and zebras practically outside the balcony of our beautiful and comfortable chalet. The chalets and the lodge are beautifully decorated. We had two game drives daily with the noble and knowledgeable Amos. Coffee in tin cups for the early morning drives and wine, beer or soft...

Hanglip Mountain Lodge is an amazing resort. The location, staff and amenities are excellent. The game drives are truly sublime and Amos, our ranger, was incredibly knowledgeable and went the extra mile to ensure that we saw as many animals as possible, even driving to the end of the resort to find a lioness. We returned from our evening drive... More

It's an out of this world experience for us coming from busy city life. The service personnel, rooms, food, songs, rangers, and even the wild animals will be our life time experience.
