Overall very nice - room are spacious and private. Lovely bath and indoor and outdoor shower and nice veranda. Food is acceptable but not fab if you are a foodie. Service is very friendly and a good 4 star but not polished to 5 star level. Would recommend this hotel.

This was a great treat for my birthday. Hitgeheim is in a lovely setting overlooking orange orchards. The service was great, from having our luggage carried to the room, to drinks served to us at the pool! The room was very beautifully decorated, and the outdoor shower was absolutely amazing!!! The 6 course dinner which we enjoyed in a dining room with magnificent views was superb! Breakfast the following morning was enjoyed on the deck at the dining room - again, superbly presented!

Service was excellent. Food was excellent. The trip to Addo with ranger Peter was definitely the highlight of our stay. His knowledge of the wildlife and South African hospitality was second to none. Archie the owner is a warm-hearted man who always puts the customer first. Top notch!

This was a great location for a visit to the Addo Elephant National Park located nearby - I used my own vehicle for the park visit. Great service, great food, great location and being a solo traveler was no problem at all.

We had an AWESOME stay at Hitgeheim! Our room was large, decorated great and private. The staff was courteous, friendly and very helpful. We looked forward every evening to the outstanding dinners that was served. The views at Hitgeheim overlooking the valley are breathtaking. All of the tours that were recommended and we took (Addo, Scotia, Elephant Back Safari, Daniell Cheetah Breeding, and the Raptor & Reptile Centre) were Awesome! Archie and Martina made our stay a true pleaure and our trip to South Africa a treasured lifetime memory - We Highly Recommend Hitgeheim Country Lodge!! Jena & Brent from St. Louis, Missouri USA

Room Tip: From what we could see, any room would be great. This is a small, quiet lodge.
