Property Facilities:
About us: The name Hitgeheim is derived from our surname Hitge - "Home or place of the Hitge Family" - German, in Dutch it's known as "Big Secret", hence Addo's luxurious secret. The Hitge family relocated to Addo from Oudtshoorn in 1990 and purchased this 238 hectare property of pristine Uitenhage Bushveld in 1999 with the vision of developing an exclusive thatched lodge. It took them nearly two years to finalize the building plans and another two years to complete the first 4 of the now 8 chalets. During their final year of construction they started training local unemployed people in the hospitality industry. The most successful candidates were employed by Hitgeheim Country Lodge. This lead to more in-house training courses at Hitgeheim. The Hitge family prides themselves on putting something back into the community through training and supporting local charity organisations. Hitgeheim Country Lodge opened its doors in October 2003 and the rest is history.
Accommodation:
Hitgeheim Country Lodge is situated on an eco-reserve in the heart of the malaria-free Sundays River Valley, only minutes from the Addo Elephant National Park. On arrival you are warmly welcomed into this place of peace and tranquility. The stylishly appointed chalets offer extra-length beds draped in romantic mosquito nets with crisp white percale linen. Luxurious bathrooms, outdoor showers and private wooden decks with breathtaking views invite you to relax and unwind completely. Awake to the haunting cries of the fish-eagles, residents to the Sundays River below the veranda of your chalet. Accompany our guide on a safari to the Addo Elephant National Park for the best elephant viewing in the world, arrange an exhilarating elephant back safari, visit one of the near-by 'Big 5' private game reserves or simply go for a walk on the reserve. Afterwards, indulge in a refreshing swim or sun-downers on the veranda as day gives way to the silence of a vast African night. Select your wine from our private collection from the walk-in cellar before you sit down to a gourmet dinner by candle-light. Here you will experience true South African hospitality at its best.
Cuisine and Dinning Experience:
Hitgeheim Country Lodge has established a reputation for outstanding cuisine. Dining with regional cuisine and unique story-telling wines from the walk-in wine cellar ensure that dining is an unforgettable experience. A 6-course menu is presented every evening and served in luxurious splendor. All meals are carefully planned and lovingly prepared by the resident chef to suit the guests' special dietary requirements, if any. A scrumptious breakfast on the veranda whilst taking in the stunning views on offer, constitutes a perfect start to the day.

As a part of our Honeymoon we went for a retreat at Hitgeheim lodge. Archie and all his staff were exeptional hosts! The view from the restaurant and the beutifully furnished rooms were unbelievable. Unlucky for us we went in the height of summer and one day it reach 41 degrees celsius thankfully the room was airconditionned and we enjoyed our stay even inthe extreme heat! WE will most definitely go back and enjoy their very tasty menu from the restaurant!
we highly recommend the scotio tooth and claw safari it truly was a treat and waiting at the lodge was a cup of lovely hot chocolate before we fell sublimely to sleep!

Superb. 5 out of 5
