Highly recommend Hippo Hollow Hotel.

Hippo Hollow was a excellent hotel. Staff was amazing and provided excellent customer service. We stayed 8 nights and after the first day, they knew what drinks we wanted and other preferences. We stayed in a delectable chalet and the room the beautiful, but the view was the best part. We saw elephant and hippos everyday. Wonderful location, 15 min drive to Kruger. Restaurant was delicious.

Excellent place to stay.Close to the Kruger Park.

We were pleasantly surprised. The hotel is beautiful and the room comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food in the restaurant was excellent and the service we received was superb. Every member of the staff went out of their way to make matters more pleasant for us. The one lady in the restaurant,Martha, was a star.She quickly noticed that my wife and I were older people (well on our way to our eighties) and she insisted that we remain at our table whilst she dished up for us. She is an asset for the hotel. The security man at the main entrance was also a very helpful and friendly man. We can recommend this establishment to all and everybody. We'll be back
