We spent a couple of nights in the Hilltops non catering chalets. Whilst not super deluxe, we found them very well equipped, comfortable, spacious and private, with a great vista. The small lounge area and decent size TV were well used to catch up on the news after a few days without! The buffet breakfasts and dinners were extensive and...

We were here to see animals and certainly did! Lioness, rhino, buffalo, giraffe - all by self driving. This in pouring rain every single day of our three night adventure. The buffet was ok - at least we could be fed. Breakfasts excellent. Some staff friendly - others non communicative and we had to work hard to get responses to...

Stayed in a non self catering room which still contained a fridge, had a lovely little balcony to watch nature. Food at the restaurant was good and the game drives were amazing. We wil definitely be back for a longer stay.

After a long trip we were pleasantly surprised by our self catering room. It was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. The restaurant was friendly and helpful and the food was really nice. We chose to drive through the game reserve with our car. Here I was thinking well we probably wont see any animals. We saw...

Sadly this resort is really in need of a major facelift - It needs a HUGE refurbish to make it nice. We didn't want to self cater for one night, so we opted to stay at Hilltop where meals are on offer. There is no other options unfortunately if you want to stay in Hluhluwe Game Reserve. Or if you...

We stayed in the Rondavels at Hilltop. They were a good choice. They were clean. They had air conditioning if it is hot. A really nice setting. One of the couples with us stayed in a chalet. It was deluxe if you need somewhere to hang out at. The Rondavel's were fine for us as we were out in the...

We stayed here after staying 3 nights at Mpila camp in iMfolozi, and the room we had smelled a little damp. Otherwise the location and the place were beautiful, but the staff were not so friendly as the staff from Mpila, and the amenities were a little worn out. We saw bushbabies in the camp at night, and nyalas during...

We stayed for 2 nights at the beginning of January in Muntulu Bush Lodge and it is nothing like the description. The lodge shouldn't be allowed to be used in its current state - thatch has holes and needs to be re-done, large holes in the floors, can't close off the main communal area as one gate is missing so...

Recently spent two nights at Hilltop Camp with 6 family members. We stayed in the non-self catering chalets. The units are large ,comfortable and clean. The beds are comfortable. The bathrooms are a little dated and need some upgrading. The food in the dining room is adequate. I do feel that if roast pork is advertised on the menu then...
