From the moment we arrived we were made feel special. The Staff here are really helpful. After a long bus journey our group were seated in the outside terrace complete with a central fire hanging from the ceiling. We were give a welcome drink, when ready our orders for dinner were taken around 5pm ( they take orders in advance)
We were shown our lovely lodges for our two night stay. The lodge has a bedroom, bathroom and sitting room area. A lovely veranda and sliding door. The trees give a wonderful feeling of being in a tree house. Think Tarzan's house with attitude and all the home comforts. Hog Hollow gives a wonderful African experience. Others have mentioned a lack of air conditioning. I really did not notice as it was not too warm when we stayed. Just right really. The bathroom had everything we needed along with the most amazing views. Everything was clean and comfortable. On our first evening in our lodge we heard a slight bang on the roof. Guess what? two monkeys must have landed on the roof and then swung on to the trees above our veranda. You do feel you are in Africa.
The Food: Oh wow the food was so good. When we arrived down to dinner, drinks were served around the outdoor fire. Here Appetizers are sent around before the main event. Dinner was lovely each evening and the breakfast the nicest we had on our 18 day tour of South Africa. I had the whole hog one day. Tried the waffles with bacon and egg another day. There's a great choice. The selection of fresh strawberries, mango, pineapple, blue berries etc were fantastic at breakfast. The kitchen really do a great job.
Wine etc was very reasonable. For me this was a truly amazing place to stay. I would love to stay again if I ever go back to South Africa. We stayed out on the main Deck after dinner to enjoy the Fire which gives off great heat. If the weather is good they serve breakfast outside. So special. The pool area is also lovely but not used that much. My only wish is that we had longer than two nights at Hog Hollow. I fell in love with the place. An Amazing special place. All our group just loved the place.
