“Fantastic stay”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

We stayed for 3 nights. It was a great stay! The service was excellent, the staff very friendly and helpful. The ranger was very knowledgeable and we saw a lot of animals, including elephants, giraffes and the cheetah. Wonderful, a must go!

Thank you for sharing your review with us. We are so glad you got to spend three nights with us and that you had a fantastic stay. Amazing that you got to see so many of the bigger animals- the elephants and giraffes and especially the cheetah. We hope you will be back to experience some more of what the reserve has to offer. Best wishes from the Bailey family and the rest of the Hlosi team

This was a great family lodge, with kids having tons of activities to keep them busy and happy. The accommodation was ample, and the game drives were def, the highlight, Looking down at the Bushmans river onto the plains was a highlight for me.

Wow! Those are such incredible pictures of the Bushmans River. The viewpoint where the rangers often stop for sun-downers really does look like paradise in the glow of an African sunset. We hope you got to see the wonderful bird-life on a boat cruise on the Bushmans river as well. Thank you so much for sharing these pictures and for staying with us. We are glad there were many options for the kids to chose from and that they were happy to be there. If you ever need a break from Cape Town traffic, you'll know where to come to unwind with the family. Best wishes from the Bailey family and the Hlosi team

Our family of five stayed in two lodges, both of an excellent standard. We stayed for 2 nights over New Year and it was a very special way to see in 2014.
The welcome was warm and the staff extremely helpful. Our ranger, Jacques, made every effort to ensure our comfort, safety and enjoyment whilst also providing a wealth of information and sharing the wonderful landscape, flora and fauna with us.
Sundowners with magnificent views and majestic animals was a truly magical way to finish our family trip to a wonderful country.

A fabulous way to start the beginning of 2014 indeed, on such a positive note. We are so happy that we got to be part of this experience for you and would like to thank you for choosing to stay with us for 2 nights. It must have been wonderful to spend this time with your family, creating such wonderful memories. You chose a great time to visit us with the aromas from the Fynbos (flora) filling the reserve. We love to hear that your family felt comfortable and safe and that you were able to enjoy yourself. We hope that if you ever return to South Africa, you will trust us to provide you with yet another fabulous experience. Best wishes from the Baileys and the Hlosi team

Everything here is very nice: the room, the food the staff and the excursions! We stayed in september for 3 nights with our 2 daughters and they gave us a very large lodge with 2 rooms and a living room. Is fantastic wake up in the moring and see in front of you zebras, jackals...The full board is very good from the breakfast to the dinner but the most exiting thing is the excursion with the ranger (thanks Asha!), we saw a lot of animals!

Fabulous photos! We thought they really captured the light and sunshine so well. The sunset is just exquisite and I'm sure it was even better to witness. Thank you for staying with us, it's wonderful that you got to spend a whole three nights. There's nothing in the world quite like an African safari and getting to see such big and majestic animals in a natural setting. It's even better when they are right on your doorstep, even the smaller guys like the zebras and jackals. We agree, it is all very exciting! We will also be sure to let the ranger (Asha) know how much fun you had. We hope you and your daughters will be back, we'd love to have you stay with us again.

Very welcoming staff, made us feel part of the family. Nothing was too much trouble, thet even made lunch especially for us after an early start on our first day at the reserve. Our ranger, Geoff, was very knowledgable and we enjoyed chatting with him during our game drives.

Would recommend this fantastic experience to everyone. Would love to return one day.

We have just returned from a 3 day stay at Hlosi with our two teenagers . We had the most fantastic time and it was the perfect place to end our 3 week holiday touring beautiful South Africa. The staff were superb and so welcoming, nothing was too much trouble. The lodges are just as the brochure suggests and the 4 stars are a realistic standard for the Accommodation. The service and the food however were a 5 star for us. We had a great guide Andrew who was so enthusiastic and very knowlegeable and along with him the rest of the Lodge staff were great. We would highly recommend a visit here. We saw the big four including Lion and Elephant at very close range! Some gorgeous Birdlife as well.
Many Thanks from the Jones Family.
PS We had absolutely no problem with water pressure/smells/ internet/lighting/road noise etc.. etc... !!!!!

Thanks too for taking the trouble to post a review: these mean a lot to us. Sounds like your south african holiday was a roaring success.

Our review will be slightly different from the norm as both my husband and I are handicapped. Having said that, we could not have found people who were so helpful and understanding and who went out of their way to make us feel welcome and not a burden in any way.
They accommodated us in every way possible and were so friendly and inviting.
Both myself and my husband had a wonderful weekend away and I would certainly recommend that anyone who needs a night or two away from home to chill....this is the place!!
