“Beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2014

We loved starting our holiday off at Hitgeheim. It's a beautiful hotel with magnificent views across the valley. We stayed in one of the standard rooms but it was gorgeous with a massive bed, armchairs, separate bathroom and roll top bath, outdoor shower... The breakfast was delcious as were the dinners. Archie and his team were brilliant at looking after us and ensured we had everything we needed, as well as organising a brilliant trip to Addo which was definitely a highlight!

Room Tip: We stayed in a standard room and thought it was beautiful - certainly didn't seem very standard!

This is a great lodge with an outstanding view. We stay for 3 days on march and everything was perfect. The rangers at the Addo and the Schotia reserves were very kind and they teach us a lot about the animals and plants that we saw. The guest at the Hitgeheim Archie its a very helpfull and nice man as all his staff. We definitly recomend this lodge and we will return in the future

Hitgeheim Country Lodge is perfectly situated on the top of a hill overlooking a citrus valley. Furthermore it is not far from Addo Elephant Park. Nature and game lovers will appreciate the place. The service provided is excellent in particular by Kaye who unfortunately seems to be leaving the place after 3 years of valuable service. The game drive to Addo was excellent; the game drive in the private game reserve (Scotchi) is a little too crowded with tourists...

We stayed for 2 days in this super lodge. Situated near Addo Park, the lodge has a good restaurant and a very friendly staff. Each lodge has different private terasses and a outdoor shower. The small swimmingpool helps you to refresh and take " sun bath".
Lovely designed rooms!

The owner was very friendly and had good communication via email. We just found the place very over priced. The views are stunning and its very comfortable but not worth the price. The restaurant is ok but only option because of the location unless you want to drive far on the dirt roads at night. The place is great but compared to other RSA 5 star places it wasnt up to par.

Great luxurious and big rooms/ bathrooms, the staff is really friendly.
Great views from everywhere, especially the pool area.
The food was good, especially the breakfast.
Good location, close to Addo National Park and many Private game reserves.
