Breathtaking

The place is a breath of fresh air, if you want that away from people feeling and being out of reach then Hippo Haven is your place, the house is something else. To Olivia, Ray and mom, thank you so much for the warm welcome, I would definitely return to Hippo Haven!

Peace of heaven in the bush.

You have the most amazing house in the bush. Had such a lovely stay. Saw hippos, monitor lizards, muscaljaat cat and so many fireflies at night. Such an amazing experience. Already contemplating when we can go again, was way too short. Thanks!

Thank you Desiree for your kind review. We look forward to accommodating you again.

Beatiful lodge, well laid out. Surroundings very relaxing and tranquil.

Another plus is the proximity to the Kruger National Park.

Ons was verskriklik bly met die ligging van Hippo Haven asook hoe mooi die huis ingerig was. Die enigste twee punte wat ons voel teen Hippo Haven tel is die mynwerke wat die stil atmosfeer deur die dag beïnvloed en wat my snags wakker gehou het. Die tweede punt is dat die stort nie 'n deur het nie en dus verskriklik water op die badkamervloer gemors het asook ook die hoofslaapbadkamer toilet wat verstop geblikt het. Die huis was netjes skoon op eerste blik maar klein goed was vuil (skottelgoeddroograk).

Laastens die kombuis en braai werk met gas maar geen aansteker of vuurhoutjes was beskikbaar nie.

Absoluut fantasties!

Wonderlike gemak en privaatheid langs water. Lekker dagrit gedoen in Kruger Wildtuin. Huis is 100% toegerus met baie meer as wat mens nodig het. Lekker sterk WiFi. Privaat en veilig. Hoogs aanbeveel!

Its a beautiful place to visit, 10 mins drive away from Kruger National Park gate.

The place is very nice! Just on our first day, the main bedroom - the bed was all wet. I think its because of the rain. TV needs to be changed, it's old school. Besides these two, all is fine. Oh! I didn't see any hippos.

Relaxing bush stay.

We were surprised by daily visits from giraffes, impalas, colourful fishers, baboons, partridges, guineafowls, apes, etc. Spacious accommodation, well equipped and clean. Great place to relax in the bush.

Rustige verblyf wat mens laat deel voel van die bos en boslewe.

Ons was elke dag verras met besoekers by ons huis: kameelperde, rooibokke, kleurvolle visvangers, bobbejane, patryse, tarentale, apies, ens. Ruim verblyf, goed ingerig en skoon. Heerlike plek om te ontspan in die bos.

5 star Haven.

Hippo's Haven was an amazing place at the doorstep of the Kruger which was an amazing plus. A 5 star place definitely.

Lodge is stunning, location beautiful.

We were very impressed with the lodge, it is beautiful. The estate, however, was not what we had hoped for. The restaurants were closed most of the time, service was average, there was no tennis courts or squash courts. So not ideal for teenage boys, but if you are looking for peace and relaxation, then it is ideal.

Heerlik en ontspanne.

Die woning is absoluut fantasties en behoorlik toegerus. Die omgewing is rustig en ontspanne. Enige aanbeveling is dat die eienaars waarskuwing bord en in die woning aan bring vir krokodille wat moontlik in die dam by die woning kan wees. Ons het 'n besoeker gehad wat in die dam gebly het. Net vir diere en dalk klein kinders.

Baie mooi en stylvol in 'n pragtige omgewing!

Baie goeie akkommodasie en die huis was baie volledig toegerus. Sal dit beslis aanbeveel en dit weer bespreek wanneer in die omgewing.
