“Excellent Accomodations”
Reviewed 3 February 2015 for a stay in November 2014

I had the opportunity to stay here for a week in Nov. 2014--I cannot say enough good things about this rental. The location on the Crocodile River was phenomenal, and the house was very well maintained (the infinity pool was one of the cleanest we've encountered in a rental) I would absolutely stay here again and would recommend it to any other traveller.

The only thing I would rate as just "Good" instead of "GREAT" would be the lack of instruction for using the appliances. If you are coming from the US, there is a bit of a learning curve with the stove and washing machine. However, this did not take away from our experience.

In fact, we look forward to booking our next stay!

“A little piece of heaven!”
Reviewed 15 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We had the most wonderful holiday at Hippo Hills! The house is lovely and the staff couldn't do enough to please. We thoroughly enjoyed visiting the restaurant and we were frequent visitors! It was a joy to be so close to the wild animals...elephants, crocs and, of course, hippos galore.

“Amazing views of the Crocodile River!”
Reviewed 8 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013
2
people found this review helpful

We spent three nights at Hippo Hills. We were a group of eight. The house is spacious and very comfortable. Each room has its own en suite bathroom with amazing views of the Crocodile River. The outside area is incredible- with a small infinity pool and a large veranda with table, chairs and loungers- allowing one to relax and enjoy the view of the Crocodile River. We saw elephants, rhino, buffalo, hippos, buck and crocs from the veranda. The upstairs also has a large outside area where one can sit and enjoy the sun set while sipping a cocktail. We had a lovely three day stay and will definitely be back!

“Luxury Accommodation with views only found in game spotting dreams!”
Reviewed 23 April 2013 for a stay in September 2011

What a fantastic way to spend a holiday. Excellent self-catering house, luxurious living. The days spent ogling game from the infinity pool or exploring the Kruger Park. Been back three times since the first visit and enjoyed every second. Unbelievable value for money.
