Really enjoyed our all too short stay in this complex. The staff were polite, helpful and very friendly throughout. The food was to a high standard with many choices which were regularly replenished. The service from the bar was perhaps a little haphazard, but as they were also preparing drinks for dining customers, this can perhaps be forgiven.The rooms were...

Stayed here for two nights with a tour group doing a safari in Kruger National Park. what a great place to stay. Dropped our bags off and within 10 minutes we were at the Kruger gates and onto our safari buses. First night had a wonderful buffet style dinner and got to see the hippos up on the lawn near...

It is in a beautiful setting and the outside patio is lovely. I have been there twice in the last month. The first time was for lunch. The food was very average & the service was quite poor. But, the hippos came out of the water which was great. The second time was for breakfast. It was a very average...

My Stay at Hippo Hollow Country Estate Hotel at Hazyview was excellent and really memorable. The lodge is covering a wide area in front of the river and wide lush green area. The rooms are very large with nice facilities and comfortable beds, which are located in two levels facing the pool. The bathroom is nice with full amenities. The...

If you are lucky enough to see the magnificent hippos come out of the water to graze - it's breathtaking !! The food leaves a lot to be desired. There is a buffet option or a la carte which we went for but everything smothered in sweet sauce and all 4 meals were cold. The staff are attentive and the...

Rooms practical, we were not here for luxury but location excellent for Kruger safaris. Shangaan night great. Close to good local amenities. Friendly helpful staff. Contained its own mini nature reserve.

Stayed as part of package tour. Possibly the most helpful staff I have encountered at a hotel. Lovely setting with hippos (and a small croc) in the river flowing in front of the hotel. Elephant sanctuary on opposite bank , what else could you ask for ? Lovely swimming pool and comfy rooms.

A spacious room in lovely surroundings. Wild life (hippos) seen in the river bordering the hotel grounds. Close to Kruger. Good food & service. The local town was a short walk away with a very attractive arts shop. Would definitely use this hotel again if visiting the Kruger again.

Stayed two nights with a tour company. Throughly enjoyed the location hotel food and entertainment. Restaurant overlooks lake which has hippos in. Also from the restaurant you are able to see elephants walking from the nearby sanctuary. Just wonderful enjoyed every minute of my stay. Local dance performance with buffet once a week - well worth going. Very enjoyable evening

We just stayed 1 night in the hotel. Hippo Hollow is more hotel like than lodges in a game reserve. From here one is able to drive through Kruger NP or join an Game drive. The entertainment during the night was really nice. For a real game drive experience a resort in the park would be better option....nevertheless this was...
