Hlosi was an amazing experience. The staff are the nicest people and will make sure you are comfortable during your stay. I have told so many already that we have never been treated in the way we were treated at Hlosi. Our car was parked for us and luggage brought to room, while hot towels and hot apple cider were...

We only stayed in Hlosi for one night due to an overbooking in another hotel. We were greeted by friendly staff and brought out on our first game drive immediately.
