Hippo Hollow Country Estate is a relaxing getaway destination in the Lowveld, with the convenience of being close to Kruger National Park and the activities and attractions of Mpumalanga. When it comes to Hazyview lodges & hotels, you can’t go wrong choosing Hippo Hollow for a family holiday or a romantic bush escape.
Hippo Hollow offers many facilities and services adding to the comfort of your stay. The hotel is set on a beautiful Country Estate with lush gardens, a river and 2 swimming pools. This is an environment that will leave any nature lover enthralled, and offers the perfect respite after a day of game drives exploring the beautiful Lowveld or a productive conference.
The on-site Hippo Hollow Restaurant has a welcoming bar and lounge area which takes the prime spot on the estate. We offer an à la carte menu and an assorted buffet. Large sliding doors open onto views of the river and an expansive deck. Here, guests can relax and enjoy watching hippo graze on the lawn while sipping on cocktails and indulging in delicious South African cuisine. Picnic lunches are available on request for day trips into the park.
The Shangaan River Club offers a unique cultural experience where diners can indulge in a hearty local feast. This is accompanied by an evening of traditional song and dance, led by local performers around a crackling fire, under the African skies in Hazyview. We also offer unique Bridge Dinners on the Hippo Hollow Elephant Whispers bridge – a unique way to experience the sights and sounds of the Sabie River at night.
In comparison to other Hazyview lodges & hotels, our conference and banqueting venues on site can cater for up to 80 delegates (cinema style) in an environment conducive to creative thinking. Delegates also have a choice of convenient accommodation options to suit their preferences. Keeping in touch with loved ones, or staying on top of business can be done with complimentary Wi-Fi in our covered lounge or using the conference room.
Take off from the comfort of Hippo Hollow to explore more of Mpumalanga and enjoy a helicopter flight through the Blyde River Canyon with Mpumalanga Helicopter Co.. Guests can also opt to walk across the bridge and delight in an elephant interaction at Elephant Whispers. Hazyview hotels have much on offer in terms of activities and attractions nearby.
