The Perfect African Escape in a Laid Back Environment

For a relaxing country break, with the convenience of being central to the Kruger National Park and the activities and attractions of the Kruger Lowveld, you will not go wrong choosing Hippo Hollow.

Hippo Hollow offers many faciliites and services adding to the comfort of your stay. The hotel is set on a beautiful Country Estate with lush gardens, a river, dams and two swimming pools. This is an environment that will leave any nature lover enthralled, and offers the perfect respite after a day of game drives and exploring the beautiful Lowveld, or a productive conference.

The on-site Hippo Hollow Restaurant, with its bar and lounge, takes the prime spot on the Estate. Large sliding doors open onto views of the river and an expansive deck where guests can relax and enjoy watching hippo graze on the lawn while sipping on cocktails and indulging in delicious South African cuisine.

Shangaan River Club – a unique cultural experience – offers a hearty feast and an evening of traditional song and dance around a crackling fire, under the African skies.

Keeping in touch with loved ones, or staying on top of business can be done with complimentary Wi-Fi in our covered lounge (should you not be staying in a Courtyard Hotel Room, or using the conference room).

Catering for up to 80 delegates (cinema style) in an environment conductive to creative thinking, Hippo Hollow offers a great conference and banqueting venue and forms the ideal base for team building activities.

Take off from the grounds of Hippo Hollow and enjoy a helicopter flight through the Blyde River Canyon with Mpumalanga Helicopter Co., or walk across the bridge and delight in an elephant interaction at Elephant Whispers. You could not ask for better convenience!
