Situated on the scenic banks of the Crocodile River, this luxury villa is set within the borders of Kruger National Park, one of the world's largest and most prestigious game reserves.

Hippo Hills accommodates ten guests in five private bedrooms. Each room enjoys air conditioning, a ceiling fan and a beautiful en-suite bathroom. Furthermore, an exceptional view of the Crocodile River from each and every bed makes for an incredible African experience.

Hippo Hills overlooks an abundance of water and the bird life is magnificent ... sit on the deck and watch the African Fish Eagle soar across a cloudless sky.

Our guests can cater for themselves, as there is a fully serviced kitchen, a large dining area with a bush barbeque / braai under the stars. There is also an a la carte restaurant, which boasts a large selection of fine African cuisine. Enjoy cocktails and lovely meals while spotting the incredible Big 5 right in front of you.

All day, relax around the rim-flow infinity swimming pool with its crystal clear water, or put your feet up with a good book on the special river viewing deck overlooking swaying riverine vegetation, the natural habitat for elephant, hippo, leopard and an abundance of buck.

At any time of the day you can jump into your car and go for a wonderful game drive in the Kruger National Park. The more adventurous can experience the unique thrill of a foot safari accompanied by an armed game ranger and Shangaan tracker who will walk the bush with you, show you how to stalk impala and the short-sighted rhinoceros or chuckle at the antics of a family of monkeys. Guided Game Drives can also be arranged with Crocodile Bridge Gate.

The beauty of Hippo Hills is that it allows you to stay on the balcony all day, savoring the sounds of Africa. Hippo Hills is one of the very few lodges in South Africa that welcomes children and by doing so, avails them to the wonders of nature, wildlife and our delicate eco-system.

I am an ex South African and brought some Canadian friends to the Kruger Park - Hippo Hills. The accommodation was fantastic and we had such a good time we are planning on returning every year. For the vacation of a lifetime do not hesitate - Hippo Hills is the best. Enjoy.

Excellent. Very nice place right on the brink of the crocodile river. One of the very few places where the pictures are actually a true reflection. A great place to sit back, relax and take in the sites. Definitely recommend this one.

It was lovely to stay in nature. It's something different from the every day holiday places. As the fishermen say: "if we want luxuries, then we'll stay at home." There's a nice bathroom with a shower. Electricity available. The place is clean and the owners do pest control. That helps a lot. All the staff coming and going was so helpful and friendly. the owners is active and listen to what the clients say. It was nice. We'll definately go again.

Fabulous. 4 out of 5
