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. Never thought that it would be possible for any place to exceed my expectations like they did. It is an unbelievable place. Check in was swift and professional, the rooms and bathrooms are absolutely lovely. Loved the fireplace and... More

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´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
