A truly great family get together, accommodation is fantastic, the scenery is beautiful, Philip was an excellent guide, he has a love for the land and the animals large and small. The highlight was when he went out of his way upon our request to get up at 3am and take us to the top of the mountain for sunrise.... More

A comfortable drive from Johannesburg, this property is simply fabulous. Just 10 cottages, with a view of the Hanglip mountain from the back porch. The safari guide, Amos was excellent. He had the knack of finding the cats with his observant eyes. He was very mindful of the wild life's nature and the guest's safety. Great place to start your... More

First off, I must say that compared to some of the lodges in Sabi, Kruger and Madikwe that are considered 5 Star, Hanglip is not on the same level - perhaps a 4 Star. But having said that, this is lovely establishment and we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. Hanglip/Entabeni is about 3 hours away from Joburg - which makes for a... More

I am very close to the year later limit because we stayed at Hanglip in September 2014. The two days here in the Entabeni Conservancy was magical. I won't go on about the animals I photod from the patio of our cottage, or about returning from vehicle safari to the comfort of the lodge at the end of the day,... More

Although only a 3hr-ish drive away from Johannesburg, being at Hanglip felt like being in a different world. The setting is amazing, as Entabeni feels so vast when you're standing at the base of the mountain range. Our stay at the lodge was wonderful in every way. The staff members were so gracious and welcoming to my parents, my friend,... More

One of the best weekends away we have had, this place was amazing! Everything about the lodge was great - the staff, the rooms, the food, the setting. Our ranger was well-informed and fun and we saw some great game too. The perfect place for a relaxed weekend away in the Waterberg!

We had a wonderful weekend at this exquisite lodge that completely exceeded our expectations. The staff were very friendly and so helpful and the guide was fun and well-informed, not to mention against a beautiful setting! This was definitely one of the best lodges that we've experienced!

Hanglip is a wonderful experience on par with Madikwe but only 3 hours by car from Johannesburg and at rates below similar deals at Madikwe. The experience is enhanced by the extremely accomodating staff and knowledgeable rangers. We had Michael as our ranger and he was wonderful.

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
