We stayed in the Rondavels at Hilltop. They were a good choice. They were clean. They had air conditioning if it is hot. A really nice setting. One of the couples with us stayed in a chalet. It was deluxe if you need somewhere to hang out at. The Rondavel's were fine for us as we were out in the...

We stayed here after staying 3 nights at Mpila camp in iMfolozi, and the room we had smelled a little damp. Otherwise the location and the place were beautiful, but the staff were not so friendly as the staff from Mpila, and the amenities were a little worn out. We saw bushbabies in the camp at night, and nyalas during...

We stayed for 2 nights at the beginning of January in Muntulu Bush Lodge and it is nothing like the description. The lodge shouldn't be allowed to be used in its current state - thatch has holes and needs to be re-done, large holes in the floors, can't close off the main communal area as one gate is missing so...

Recently spent two nights at Hilltop Camp with 6 family members. We stayed in the non-self catering chalets. The units are large ,comfortable and clean. The beds are comfortable. The bathrooms are a little dated and need some upgrading. The food in the dining room is adequate. I do feel that if roast pork is advertised on the menu then...

I spent 2 days here doing Safari with a group of my friends in HluHluWe Game Reserve. The place is located at a fantastic place. The top of the hill with nearly 360 view around the park is exceptional. The restaurant, shop, reception as well as the huts are all nicely designed and provide all services one would expect. There...

The accommodation at this camp looked promising from the outside, lovely welcoming reception. However, the restaurant was not good. We popped in for lunch - the service was shocking - slow and unfriendly. The food was also not so good - my husband had steak and it was awful. My fish was OK but had a hair in it, so...

The park looks amazingly green and lush with plenty of animals. The best was the elephants and of course, the rhinos. The lodge - yes, they old, but they were clean, tidy, comfortable bed and had an amazing view. We found the customer service at reception and at breakfast outstanding. Thank you.

Kruger is known to all. This experience is unique and I could manage to see 4 out of 5 BIG. Though it was winter in southern hemisphere and it was windy and cloudy, but that didn't stop the nature to offer. The silence and the darkness of the night may give a little uncomfortable feel in forest who like me...
