What customers are saying about ...

Hluhluwe Hilltop Camp

“We had a one-bedroom chalet, breakfast was included and was very good. We loved the layout, much bigger than we anticipated and the high thatched ceiling was wonderful to look at. The deck was great as nyala wandered around in the area below us.”

— Pam

“We stayed in the two-story houses with two bedrooms, a living room, kitchenette, and a deck. They were clean and comfortable, plenty of space, with TVs available. Air conditioning worked well to keep the house comfortable.”

— Eric
