Wonderful private game safari experience. Excellent food and very comfortable accommodation. Yes, the bathrooms were a little dark, but does that really matter when there is such natural beauty all around? There was free Wifi in the common areas but the service was patchy and very slow. Game drives were informative and enjoyable .... Albeit very cold even with the... More

What a lovely long weekend. The setting, food, staff were all wonderful. The rooms are perfectly comfortable but not very stylish and lack the "wow" factor of many of the other lodges, but then i guess, so does the price tag. Good value for money and the children had a wonderful time. Lawrence our ranger was just wonderful with them.... More

We spent two nights at Hanglip lodge on the Entabeni reserve. It rained almost continuously the entire time and our game drives were very limited. We managed to see lions on the way in at dusk and as other said there are animals around the property. Thunder and lightening dampened out excitement about the lodge because they didn't seem to...

Dear Cruisingatsea, Thank you for taking the time to review our Lodge and our apologies for the tardy response! It is most unfortunate that your trip fell over one of the worst weather periods that Limpopo has seen in a long time. The unprecedented rain on our Reserve eventually led to the Upper Escarpment lodges being closed for a few... More

Recently we were on a trip which included a stay at this lodge. As we were on our way, after disembarking from our bus, a lightening storm began. We were in these range rovers or what ever and our guide drove like there was no tomorrow. On our way we saw some giraffes. I was not in good position to... More

This place was truly outstanding in every way. The location and the game drives were amazing. Being able to sit on the private porch and watch animals is truly an experience. The accommodations were very roomy and had everything we needed. Just be careful putting suitcases on the floor. Creepy-crawly things can get into them. The staff could not have... More

This is an amazing property in the midst of the Entabeni Game Reserve. As you look out your window you will see animals of all kinds. We saw giraffes walking by, wildebeest grazing, and young lions on the hunt. The room was so nice, and the staff was incredible. Trevor was our game ranger, and he was so knowledgeable and... More

Elephants, leopards, cheteas, impalas, wildebeest, giraffe, hypo's, rhino's, white beers, they just were to be seen at very vlosse distance. The jeeps are very confortable and the... More

These individual lodges were great as was the evening meals allowing to taste some African cuisine. We saw 4 of the big 5 on our morning and afternoon safaris, sadly the elusive leopard was not spotted! The rangers were fun and incredibly knowledgeable and the scenery was breathtaking. We were able to organise a hot air balloon ride with Bill... More

Spent a day at Hangklip! What a place! Great service, great food, awesome room, and ask for Trevor to take you on a game drive! We took an evening and morning game drive and saw lion, elephant, rhino and various antelope. Trevor is an amazing guide!
