The customer service is of the highest caliber, truly five star. We were greeted at the airport and shuttled to the lodge by the friendly staff.... More

Our 2 nights at Hitgeheim were a real spoil. The views are beautiful and our room was stunning ! A really nice touch was the staff singing "Happy Birthday" to my wife at breakfast. It brought tears to her eyes. The service was exemplary - attentive and friendly. We were most surprised that our vehicles received a courtesy wash in... More

Our stay at Hitgeheim was excellent. Our room was clean and of the highest standard and well thought design. Archie, Marietjie and their staff were friendly and knowledgeable of the area and assisted us with absolutely everything. Definitely recommended for a short luxurious break to Addo!

Better internet and a television is a must because there is after game drive (early return) nothing to do. Breakfast was sober and the food average and prcie quality out of balance.The bathroom lights are inefficient because the room is rather dark.

You would never have known..the... More
