This place is awesome. They have garden chalets that are like tiny houses with everything you need in a romantic setting. You have to stay here one night, then you will be hooked! They even offer a traditional African Feast on some nights with a wonderful African drum beat show!

We were a party of 7 and stayed two nights at Hippo Hollow at the beginning of our 3 week holiday. Hazy view is a great place to stay if you're visiting Kruger but want to see sights like God's Window etc as well. During our stay at Hippo Hollow we were looked after by Ephraim Singane who booked our... More

We had a river view chalet, which was unusual architecturally and in a lovely situation with a big terrace outside overlooking the river. However, we found there were a lack of toiletries (e.g. shower cap, shampoo) for what we were paying and the room became very cold at night so we used the spare duvets. On the first night we'd...

We spent one night at Hippo Hollow as our safari lodge was too far from Nelspruit to make our departing flight. The first impression is positive but after a bit we felt unsafe. We had a river chalet which provided a nice view. It is definitely set up for a self catering stay with a small kitchen and an outdoor... More

Very nice lodges, the food was very good and a perfect view on the terras at the river and the baby hippo on the lawn with an excellent cocktail to drink. Directly from the hotel you can make a trip with elefants. A nice green hotel with different kind of accomodation.

Stayed at Hippo Hollow for three nights. Good place for visits to Kruger Park. Went in August when it was quite cold in the mornings. However, on request a heater was supplied in the room. Beds comfortable and nice having view of river from the restaurant so that we could see the hippos.

These Lodges are very comfortable & relaxing, right next to the river for views of Hippo's and crocodiles. A big thanks to Ryan of Perfect Africa for organising our amazing trip and recommending Hippo Hollow to us. The lodges are spacious and comfortable and you can either re charge your batteries in comfort if previously been on safari or you... More

The first thing you see when you're greeted upon arrival at Hippo Hollow near the reception is a sign warning you to beware of hippos and crocodiles. You wonder if this is for real and you're told that it is -- you sometimes have crocs in the river or along the river edge (mainly during the day), and at night... More

When this place was suggested to me by my travel agent Rhino Africa, I was dubious as I don't usually stay in 3 star places. However, the service and food is 5 star. On check in the guy on reception suggested we meet Kenny the chef who should know why we like to eat as he would be preparing halal... More

This family’s holiday in South Africa was fabulous. We were warmly embraced by the hospitality of many wonderful people. We received helpful advice and many tips about where to go, what to see and where to eat. We have seen the natural beauty of SA, it’s animal life (lots, including the big 5), the first class infrastructure (roads, shops, parks... More
