  • Description
  • Facilities
Hippo Waterfront Lodge offers the most peaceful and quiet setting on the banks of the Crocodile River, only 10 km outside of Nelspruit.

Affordable, clean, comfortable and fully equipped timber log chalets and rooms ensure a real rustic and African bush experience. Each chalet has a magnificent view of the river from its private veranda. Running water, rolling green lawns and lots of indigenous trees bring abundant bird life to this setting, and guests can enjoy visits from the river’s resident hippos.

This is an ideal base from which to explore the wonders of the Mpumalanga Lowveld, such as Blyde River Canyon, God’s Window, Bourkes Luck Potholes, waterfalls, the Sudwala Caves and the Kruger National Park.

Thanks Johan. We had a very nice relaxing weekend, just what our city folks need and would definitely return again and would recommend the Lodge to all our family and friends.

I can recommend Hippo Waterfront Lodge to anyone who is looking for accommodation in the Nelspruit area. The staff are friendly and helpful, the accommodations are clean, and the surrounding landscape is peaceful. The bird life is amazing. I wish we could have stayed longer. Thank you for a wonderful weekend. We will definitely be back.

Really beautiful, quiet and peaceful experience! Our stay was unfortunately very short, but we will definitely return. It is also a birding paradise. The accommodation was great and service very friendly. Thank you.
