About Hitgeheim Country Lodge & Eco-Reserve
Accommodation is provided in stylishly furnished chalets with luxurious bathrooms, and all include wooden decks with breathtaking views over citrus orchards and the sweeping countryside. Experience the serenity of waking up to the haunting cries of the fish-eagles, residents to the Sundays River below.
Accompany our guide on an Addo Elephant National Park Safari for the best elephant viewing in the world. Arrange an exhilarating safari, visit one of the near-by Addo 'Big 5' private game reserves or simply go for a walk on one of the many trails on our grounds. Afterwards, have a refreshing swim in our pool, or sundowners on the verandah before sitting down to a gourmet dinner by candlelight. We encourage you to select your wine from our private collection from the walk-in cellar before your meal. We trust that here, you will experience true South African hospitality at its best.
