Hlosi game lodge is less than an hours drive from Port Elizabeth so its a nice, quick breakaway for a weekend. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Hlosi is a small lodge with a welcoming atmosphere. The food is excellent and compliments to the chef. Our room was wonderfully large and comfortable. We had a very romantic suite away...

Our family safari was rich with wildlife encounters, we will never forget it!. The personal service is exceptional at HLOSI. The lodge has a quiet atmosphere, and includes only six cabins; therefore ensuring that each guest is afforded personal attention, privacy. There is plenty of space to relax and enjoy the scenic surroundings.

We had a wonderful stay at Hlosi and would highly recommend it - particularly for families with children. We took our little girls who are 3 and 1. The ranger, Rowan, allowed our 3 year old to come on one of the drives with us which was amazing. She loved it and still talks about it months later. Rowan also...

We were really let down by Hlosi Game Lodge. Despite booking well in advance and paying in full 7 months ahead we were told that there was on overbooking a few days before we were due to arrive. Trying to sort out alternative arrangements whilst over in South Africa was extremely stressful. We ended up staying at Hlosi for 2...

Hlosi lodge made our holiday an experience we'll never forget. It was my Mothers 70th birthday and she'd always wanted to go to Africa on a safari, and we thought that as a special treat we'd arrange a family holiday there. We didn't realise that the majority of safari lodges don't allow children and so Hlosi was one of only...

Hlosi was the icing on the cake for my friend of 60 years & myself. We saw more animals than Kruger and we thought it was more professional. Unfortunately we only stayed for one night with 2 safaris, but even so in the evening, unbeknown to us, they presented us with a huge, chocolate cake to celebrate our friendship. It...

We stayed at the Hlosi lodge last week for 3 nights. The individulal lodges are very comfortable with the little 'touches'. The main area with reception, bar and restaurant are very tastefully decorated and the fires were a great comfort after coming back from the drives. We were very well looked after by the staff, they were always pleasant and...
