An absolute beautiful place! Very kind personel and superb viewings. It was terrible to leave here! One of hour highlights of our holiday. If you plan a trip to South Africa do yourself a favour and stay here for minimum 2 nights.

We once again stayed at this Lodge for our anniversary and what an great experience! Archie, Marietjie and there staff go out of their way to assist in any way that they can! The rooms are exceptional with the most spectacular views over the valley!! Dinner was again fantastic where you can choose your own bottle of wine from the cellar! If you are looking for piece and quiet, this is the place for you! We will be going back for my wife's 40th in April 2013!

Room Tip: Some rooms do have two single beds, so if you want a double ask for it!

Overall very nice - room are spacious and private. Lovely bath and indoor and outdoor shower and nice veranda. Food is acceptable but not fab if you are a foodie. Service is very friendly and a good 4 star but not polished to 5 star level. Would recommend this hotel.

This was a great treat for my birthday. Hitgeheim is in a lovely setting overlooking orange orchards. The service was great, from having our luggage carried to the room, to drinks served to us at the pool! The room was very beautifully decorated, and the outdoor shower was absolutely amazing!!! The 6 course dinner which we enjoyed in a dining room with magnificent views was superb! Breakfast the following morning was enjoyed on the deck at the dining room - again, superbly presented!

Service was excellent. Food was excellent. The trip to Addo with ranger Peter was definitely the highlight of our stay. His knowledge of the wildlife and South African hospitality was second to none. Archie the owner is a warm-hearted man who always puts the customer first. Top notch!

This was a great location for a visit to the Addo Elephant National Park located nearby - I used my own vehicle for the park visit. Great service, great food, great location and being a solo traveler was no problem at all.
