We love to self drive and chill the day away with amazing animal sightings slow driving but after visiting Hluhluwe Umfolozi Hilltop restaurant twice in the last 6 months I can honestly say that things appear to be going from bad to worse. The last time we were there in September we had visitors with us from the UK and...

For some time we had wanted to stay in the Hluhuwe-Imfolozi National Park and eventually had the opportunity on route back from the KZN North Coast. The park itself is beautiful, in parts quite mountainous, but with stunning views and vegetation in spite of the recent lack of rain. There is game, especially Rhino and Buffalo but definitely less than...

the hill top camp is centrally ln the Hluhluwe reserve.There is an outstanding view , however the rooms are old and the place would benefit a lot from a refurbishment ... especially the rooms. we were there on Dec 31st and ... nothing had been organised.

I haven´t been to Hluhluwe since early 80ties when I stayed in the old camp in a rondavel. This time we also booked a rondavel and it was a pleasant surprise. Well equipped with kitchen equipment and fan and aricon. The aircon was excellent to have when it was almost 43 degrees and so was the swimming pool. Had forgotten...

The accommodation comprises of hutson that are air conditioned with a sink and running water. The ablutions are close by. Amazing place to stay with an outdoor swimming pool close by. Being so close to the game reserve allows visitors (monkeys) to wander free as well as other animals so keep your doors closed and locked when you leave! The...

We had a wonderful time at Mthazi lodge with our boys. We had a fantastic game drive in the morning. We were unlucky though, we only saw three of the big five, which was disappointing. But we had a great time.

While staying at the Mpila Camp in Umfolozi we travelled through the corridor into Hluhluwe for lunch at Hilltop. A visit time Hilltop is a must anyway but if you have time for lunch, do so. I had a venison curry bunny chow. The curry was superb and for those that haven't come across a bunny chow before, it was...

Hilltop camp was brilliant. Our accommodation was number 48, very accessible, which was welcome as I have some mobility issues at the moment. Housekeeping God, clean towels etc every day. The restaurant food was very good, buffet breakfast with a wide range on offer. Evening meals good, too, with a roast and a curry each evening , plus good soups...

The reserve is fantastic. The lodgings are disappointing and the food options are typical instutional catering. A close copy of school dinners. The game drives are wonderful and well worth while. The management seems to have not grasped the importance of the standards needed to be met to justify the costs charged. We were not self catering but still declined...
