Hippo Hollow Country Estate

Located in Hazyview, a short 7 kilometres from the Kruger National Park is the Hippo Hollow Country Estate, the safari lodge that has it all. The Kruger Park is home to the “Big Five,” the five indigenous animals said to be the hardest to hunt on foot. With hundreds of species of bird and all the wild game you could dream of, it truly is a nature lover’s paradise.

The estate offers a unique and tranquil space to sit back, relax and soak up the sights and sounds of the surrounding environment; in fact, the chalets don’t have Wi-Fi access, Television or phones. This is a truly special opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle.

But just because there’s no Wi-Fi or Television, certainly doesn’t mean that there is nothing to do. It will show you what life was like before all that fancy technology with a myriad of exciting activities to enjoy such as the very special elephant interactions.
