We have been in Hitgeheim only 2 nights. Location, sight, room, staff, ranger, food, wine, experiences: here everything is perfect. Charme and nature, a place not to be missed. A special suggestion: after the safari take a bath in the beautiful bathtub of the bedroom.

The Lodge is reached either from the National Road or the R75 and via a short dirt road, up a hill, to this delightful Country Lodge. From the top of the mountainside there is a spectacular view of the Kirkwood valley. The rooms are large, nicely furnished, comfortable bed, with all the extras one would expect at a 5 star... More

Great location and beautifull lodges. A perfect stay for your visit at Addo, we did a nice park tour with the Steven the guide from Hitgeheim. Include your diners with your booking since it is no option to dine elsewhere (too far). No worries, they serve a fine diner.

We had a terrific time at Hitgeheim Country Lodge a fortnight ago. The villa was divinely luxuriant and stylish, with a decadently large bathroom. The views were absolutely sublime, with a vista over Addo Elephant Park in the distance coupled with a glorious sunrise view in the morning. The food was heavenly, and garnished with impeccable service, particularly from Ryan.... More

A fantastic view from the place. The large, nice, clean and comfortable room was a pleasure in all senses. The dinner was good. The breakfast not perfect, the buffet without ham, cheese, and others salt choiches. Be careful to the entry beverages. Usually, fast all the lodges we were, not only at the same room price (190,00 euro) offers the... More

My partner Rob and I spent three glorious days at Hitgeheim at the end of July. The lodge is beautifully designed and has breathtaking views of the valley on three sides. The cottage was luxurious and the service, from Ryan, David, our hosts and owners, and the housekeeping staff was excellent. They hired top-notch guides to take us to Addo... More

The Hitgeheim Country Lodge is a hidden treasure in Addo. After a week of camping in the Kruger Park and 'roughing it,' we were delighted and truly spoiled during our stay at this lodge. 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
