Hazyview Accommodation

Overlooking Picturesque Gardens or the Mighty Sabie River

Only ten minutes from the world famous Kruger National Park (Phabeni Gate), Hippo Hollow offers comfortable accommodation set within tranquil indigenous gardens just outside Hazyview, the activity gateway to the Kruger Lowveld.

This is not your standard accommodation establishment. Hippo Hollow is non-traditional with a refreshing “Out-of-Africa” vibe leaving you feeling totally relaxed. All rooms and chalets have en-suite bathrooms and tea/coffee facilities and are furnished with touches of local wood for a traditional finish.

The beautifully maintained gardens, with two swimming pools, are home to a wonderful variety of bird species, and the Sabie River attracts hippo, crocodiles, monkeys, waterbirds and even elephants from Elephant Whispers.

A Magical Hotel

We enjoyed a few wonderful days at Hippo Hollow as part of our trip to visit the Kruger National Park. The location is magical and set on the edge of a river where Hippos come out to feed at night and where elephants can be seen ( in the distance) during the day. The service and hospitality of the staff was excellent and the outside terrace for eating an absolute must. We’d love to go back there!
