Our stay in Hitgeheim was one of the highlights of our whole Gardenroute journey. The rooms are just fabulous, the food is so delicious and the service was great. Also the combination with the Safaritour is definitely worth it. The owner itself waited for us until we came home from the safari and let us know, that we also can...

We have been in Hitgeheim only 2 nights. Location, sight, room, staff, ranger, food, wine, experiences: here everything is perfect. Charme and nature, a place not to be missed. A special suggestion: after the safari take a bath in the beautiful bathtub of the bedroom.

The Lodge is reached either from the National Road or the R75 and via a short dirt road, up a hill, to this delightful Country Lodge. From the top of the mountainside there is a spectacular view of the Kirkwood valley. The rooms are large, nicely furnished, comfortable bed, with all the extras one would expect at a 5 star...

Great location and beautifull lodges. A perfect stay for your visit at Addo, we did a nice park tour with the Steven the guide from Hitgeheim. Include your diners with your booking since it is no option to dine elsewhere (too far). No worries, they serve a fine diner.

We had a terrific time at Hitgeheim Country Lodge a fortnight ago. The villa was divinely luxuriant and stylish, with a decadently large bathroom. The views were absolutely sublime, with a vista over Addo Elephant Park in the distance coupled with a glorious sunrise view in the morning. The food was heavenly, and garnished with impeccable service, particularly from Ryan....

“Room 8 is the last on the row and so no one walks past your balcony to get to their rooms which makes it more private.”
