Hippo Hollow Country Estate is situated outside Hazyview on the Sabi River between the Drakensberg mountains to the west and the low-lying bushveld to the west. It is the ideal destination from which to access the reserves of the Lowveld and the sights of Mpumalanga. Hippo Hollow is just 10 minutes from the Kruger National Park and the Panorama Route, which includes Pilgrim's Rest, Graskop, Bourkes Luck Potholes, God's Window, the Blyde River Canyon, and the many fantastic waterfalls of the escarpment close by.
Hippo Hollow Country Estate provides the ideal breakaway from the rigorous of city life. The lodge has an "Out of Africa" feel about it, and leaves you feeling totally relaxed and refreshed. The A La Carte Restaurant invites guests to enjoy fine cuisine accompanied by South African wines selected from our wine cellar. Relax at one of the two beautifully positioned swimming pools set amongst lush gardens, or take a helicopter adventure, where you will swoop over deep and mysterious gorges, linger above roaring rivers and cascading waterfalls, and view the fascinating and dramatic rock formations of the Blyde River Canyon.
A range of activities such as a trip to Shangaan Cultural Village, white water rafting, quad biking, open vehicle safaris into the Kruger National Park, kloofing, abseiling and horse riding, to mention but a few, can be arranged by our friendly staff at reception.
