7,000 hectors with tons of vehicles and lodges. No off road viewing and despite its small size we saw no lion and very little. And always from far away. Ranger was knowledgable. Boat trip as part of the game drive was excellent. The tented accommodation was good but not amazing, the views from the camp are poor but the area...

Spent two nights at Hlosi, the game drives were great but the accommodation is way below standard compared to the price you pay. The rooms are far from four star standards and don't get cleaned properly. In addition to this December in South Africa has a hot climate and the air conditioning does not work even after they claim it...

We had a wonderful stay in Hlosi, Amakhala in November. We were well looked after in the Lodge and our accommodation was excellent. All the staff were so helpful and friendly. The food and drink was all included in our package. Our twice daily safari trips were a real adventure and Jonno our ranger was fantastic. We looked forward to...

We took our 2 grandsons to Hlosi to experience a 'better' game lodge than one vidited previously but was sorely disappointed with Hlosi. On arrival we were allocated a different room to the one we booked and it should be cheaper than the one booked, as it was a lot more rustic and old looking! The service at breakfast was...

We took a day tour at Hlosi - warm welcome, lovely scenery, lots of game, keen guide, and delicious lunch. Was sad not to see any elephants, or lions with my Australian guest, but enjoyed the day. Lovely close encounters with giraffe.

Hi Mandy, it's lovely to hear you enjoyed your day tour with Hlosi Game Lodge. It sounds like you had some great sightings. The thrill of visiting a game reserve is never knowing quite what you'll see on the drive. We're very glad you enjoyed watching the giraffes, they are one of our absolute favourites to watch too, especially with...

This place is absolutely wonderful. From the moment you arrive the hospitality is wonderful. Our ranger was Wonga and he was brilliant. We could not have wished for a better ranger. He was so helpful and found every animal we requested. The accomodation was lovely, we regularly sat in our terrace and watched the giraffes in the distance. It was...

Our stay here was the highlight of our holiday. We stayed 3 nights and wished we had stayed longer. Our accommodation in a luxurious lodge close to the main building was excellent and Hlosi Lodge itself is beautifully appointed with antiques which creates a wonderful "old world" atmosphere. Food is great especially the brilliant "High Tea" before the afternoon game...

Two couples travelling around South Africa, the best part of the entire holiday was the safari at Amakhala game reserve. Hlosi staff were amazingly helpful, the ranger Johno was very knowledgeable and entertaining. We managed to see almost everything, apart from the illusive Cheetahs! Would recommend at least two nights stay to get full value for money. We stayed in...
