Archie & Marietjie Hitge have achieved the perfect balance between outstanding luxury with total privacy and peace. Understated with attention to detail. Guests are made to feel relaxed from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave in your freshly cleaned car. What a wonderful experience - highly recommended.

We had 6 rooms, two of which had very young children. We were treated wonderfully well with staff and hosts bending over backwards to be sure we had the best time. Could not recommend more highly. Activities the best!!!

We spent the last 3 nights here on our 6 week stay in Africa and it was wonderful. Perfect place to unwind and relax. Beautiful staff who were always there to assist. Close to Addo National Park and the walks around the property were great

On arrival at Hitgeheim we were greeted by the staff who made us feel at home. From then on, we were looked after very well and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. We even got the opportunity to watch a rugby world cup game and meet some new people from around the world

We had a very enjoyable and peaceful stay at Hitgeheim, were impressed with the service and greatly enjoyed the safari day in Addo Elephant Park undertaken with Hitgeheim's Ranger and vehicle. We would definitely return if we are in the area again.

Room/ chalets were top quality with stunning views, service was amazing and made to feel very welcome. On the downside the wifi was intermittent but only to be expected in that remote an area.

Everything during our stay at Hitgeheim was fantastic. The personal service, fabulous meals, amazing views and beautiful room were top notch. The hospitality Archie and the staff showed is what will give us a reason to return. Thank you, Hitgeheim! We hope to return again!

The property is well located for Addo Elephant Park, with luxurious rooms and top class food. It is ideal for that mid-week or weekend getaway. We would suggest doing a dinner, bed and breakfast option, coupled with a selection from Archie's wine cellar.
