- Beautiful bandas
- Good location

- It was expensive

This lodge is very well located for Queen Elizabeth Park.

The rooms have excellent decor and are very spacious with full baths and overhead showers. Our experience was that the water was hot regularly and the pressure was good. However we stayed with friends and they had very little hot water.

The bar is big but has no wifi or atmosphere, we were not aware of a restaurant.

Good for an overnight stay but I probably wouldn't stay for longer.

Stayed: December 2014

Good enough camp site if you are on a tight budget. Not much in the way of things to do/beautiful views but good enough.

Only quarm was that the toilets were pretty messy and could have done with a door - you can't breathe for mosquitoes in there.

The best thing about Hippo Hill is the service. We were the only ones staying here for the two nights we were there, and we were made to feel incredibly welcome. Staff have been trained well and the dinner service was very sharp! Food is ok, breakfast was delicious! We were served big portions which we appreciated after being on safari! Alcoholic drinks were also very cheap. We were there as part of a budget safari and the accommodation was better than what we expected. There is no power, but you are able to charge phones/cameras in the restaurant. The only disappointing thing was that we couldn't get hot water for showers. They use solar heating, so maybe it hadn't been sunny enough?! We were so impressed by other aspects that we chose not to complain about it. A great choice and value for money.

We spent one night camping at Hippo Camp with our overland group. The camp had an armed guard in the event a roaming elephant or hippo came wandering through our camp at night. Luckily, all was peaceful but the idea of being so close to the animals was really cool. The camping grounds/facilities were well maintained. The showers were clean and hot. Sheltered cooking areas with a water tap were also available and easy to use.
