About Hippo Hills

Situated on the scenic banks of the Crocodile River, this private Safari Villa overlooks the Kruger National Park, one of the world’s largest and most prestigious game reserves. Just 4 hours from O.R. Tambo (Johannesburg) Airport the lodge offers guests a superior Big 5 safari experience.


Hippo Hills accommodates up to ten guests in five private en-suite bedrooms. Upstairs has three large bedrooms; one double and two twin beds. These lead to a large viewing deck and bar area where visitors can enjoy a sunset drink while watching a variety of bird and animal life.

Downstairs has two more bedrooms; one double and one twin. All the rooms enjoy air conditioning, a ceiling fan and an en-suite bathroom. Furthermore, an exceptional view of the Crocodile River from each and every bed makes for an incredible African memory.

This double-story house has an open plan kitchen, dining room and lounge area with satellite television and an extra sleeper couch. As a visitor you have the option to cater for yourself using the fully serviced kitchen and outside braai or dine at the a-la-carte restaurant, which boasts a large selection of fine African cuisine.


Experience game drives in the Kruger National Park, walks amongst wild animals, stargazing in the African sky, open air dining and bird watching. Hippo Hills is located within the fences of the Kruger National Park and visitors, while lounging in the private swimming pool, have been lucky enough to spot the Big 5. Hippo Hills sits on a riverbed where the bird-life is magnificent … lie on the deck and hear the distinct call of the African Fish Eagle.


Hippo Hills is situated just 4 hours drive from O.R. Tambo Airport and close to both Swaziland and Mozambique borders. The lodge offers both local and international guests a superior living environment enhanced by an impressive Big 5 safari experience.

Our visitors are welcome to go into the Crocodile Bridge Gate, Kruger Park (10 minutes away) on a self-drive or an open vehicle game drive organised directly with the camp. The more adventurous can experience the unique thrill of a foot safari accompanied by an armed game ranger and Shangaan tracker who will walk the bush with you, show you how to stalk impala and the short-sighted rhinoceros or chuckle at the antics of a family of monkeys.

Often you do not need to go for a drive as most of the game can be seen from your private patio. All day, relax around the rim-flow infinity swimming pool with its crystal clear water, or put your feet up with a good book on the special deck overlooking swaying riverine vegetation - the natural habitat for elephant, buffalo, hippo, leopard and an abundance of buck.
