“Lovely place to stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2012

We went to Hippo Pools last august 2012 and had a very nice stay! The environment is beautiful! Green gardens, Bougainvillea, a deep blue pool and very comfortable and clean houses.
We stayed at one of the riverside houses and it was amazing. Very nicely decorated with a stunning view at the river. The braai place is cosily built under the trees near the river. We spent a few memorable evenings there. Hippo Pools is also a good place to make some adventurous excursions. You can go to the Kruger Park, visit Moholoholo rehab centre, take a boat trip....and many more.
We would definitely recommend Hippo Pools to anyone!
