The best idea for a perfect relaxation in excellent conditions. Do not skip the two safari trips, morning and evening. If you do not have enough time, the evening safari is very much preferred. Many thanks to the team for the terrific service and food.

An excellent location to stay when you visit Addo National Park. Archie and his family went out of their way to make my stay a memorable one. Rooms are wonderful and are cleaned several times a day. Breakfast is on a veranda with spectacular views across the valley, and Dinner is a treat. Couldn't recommend more that if you are...

The actual place is nice but dated. The views are over citrus groves but all of the trees are on straight lines so it looks very 'industrial' The room itself was spacious and quite luxurious very clean and very comfortable. There were 2 major let downs. One was the food which really is not that good. The second is front...

the managing staff is unfriendly. Food price is high and quality is poor. The house wines are overpriced. There seem to be two swimming pools. One is miniature, we were unable to locate the second one. The acces road is very very bumpy.

nice location, really good service. it was a great experience... especially the combination of Addo Safari and Schotia Private Game Reserve Safari. But do not both Safaris at the same day and follow the route advise by Hitgeheim and not the by your navigation system...

We spent 3 nights at Hitgeheim Country Lodge as a family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teenagers). The accommodation was perfect, being in a gorgeous thatched cottage with 2 intercommunicating rooms. We both had large rooms with baths, showers and (a lovely touch) outside showers, and private terraces. Air con was great. The location is perfect, with great views over...

Excellent accommodation in small lodges set high above the surrounding countryside. Family owned and excellent service. The game drives were very good and the guides were knowledgable and informative.

This luxury lodge was a wonderful setting for relaxing, with a good Afrikaans welcome. We had a four night stay and a beautiful, spacious classically furnished room with good air-con, a huge comfortable bed, slipper bath, double sinks and both inside & outside showers as well as a mini-stoep providing great views. The small reception area more or less works;...

The Hitgeheim Lodge is very comfortable and a little quirky. The lodge is run by Archie and his family who provide individual care and a warm welcome. The views from the room's terrace are stunning and we had both an indoor and outdoor shower. The safari ride to Addo elephant park with the lodge's guide was brilliant and our guide...
