Way overpriced for what you get. You will also pay for your drinking water here, as most places at least give you a bottle to bruch your teeth. Location, great. Really nice authentic rooms, staff friendly, was great to have a hot shower. Smell of sewage from under the floor. The food was bad, as I was sick the whole night from it.

Room Tip: you don't have a choice

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.
