We were looking forward to staying at Hippo Hollow after reading many of the reviews.
On arrival nobody seemed to know we were arriving so we were just left standing there till they found our envelope.
The rooms were nice, having being a regular traveller to Africa the bugs dont bother me but there were alot and we did get baddly bitten, we slept downstairs, upstairs the beds had brown stains all over, i think this was from the leaking roof.
We did see regular hippo right outside our chalet and saw the occasional croc.
The main downdide of this hotel was the resteraunt, its geared up for big groups - Saga holidays, when they are in its a buffett. When they leave the main courses are served up with the left overs. We had veg for a couple of nights because it was left over from the buffett then we had to pay extra. The waiter said it was just what was left in the kitchen. I ordered a well done steak and it came out bleeding 3 times. Not one person in the resteraunt said sorry thats what really got to me. We complained then all the staff ignored us for the rest of our stay.
One morning i wanted a swim but the pool was still full of worms at 2pm.
This could be so nice but nobody can be bothered.More
