If you are looking for affordable accommodation before or after your Kruger National Park experience, then Hippo Hollow Country Estate is an ideal option. Set on a country estate, it is only 10 minutes drive from the Phabeni gate entrance, and just outside the quaint town of Hazyview. This location is especially great if you are also only looking to do a few game drives into the park, while continuing on to other South African attractions like the Panorama Route, Kruger Lowveld or Drakensberg Mountains.
This accommodation near the Kruger Park is ideal for business travellers, families and couples. From the free Wi-Fi, to the hospitable staff and varied facilities, you will be sure to find something just right for you. Choose from crisp hotel rooms, the secluded river and garden chalets, or the more rustic courtyard thatched rooms. The two swimming pools are great for the kids. The nearby dam and Sabie River are great for the hippos.
The adults can kick back at the bar or find a good spot on the sun deck to relax. In between soaking up the atmosphere of Hippo Hollow Country Estate, there are plenty of optional activities to enjoy in the area, such as rafting, golfing, quad biking, water tubing and helicopter flights.
Hippo Hollow Restaurant and Kuka Restaurant both offer a variety of hearty dishes that you can enjoy throughout your stay. In the evening, you can head over to the Shangaan River Club where meals are served by the open fire, with a special Shangaan traditional dance and song performance.
