Holiday with the hippos of Sabi

Hippo Hollow Country Estate is situated outside Hazyview on the Sabie River, between the Drakensberg Mountains and the low-lying bushveld. It is the ideal destination from which to access the game reserves of the lowveld and the enchanting sights of Mpumalanga.

Witness wondrous wildlife, including kingfishers and other beautiful water birds as well as hippos grazing on the lawns, make the atmosphere a tranquil and gratifying experience. Two large central swimming pools on the Hippo Hollow estate offer a welcome respite on hot lowveld days. Arts-and-crafts lovers can enjoy the well-stocked curio shop which boasts a good selection of local art.

Accommodation at Hippo Hollow comes in many forms, including 18 river chalets, 19 garden chalets set in a sub-tropical garden and 54 standard rooms for larger groups and families. Enjoy decadent breakfasts, lunches and dinners at the Hippo Hollow Restaurant. For a special experience, immerse yourself in the nearby Shangaan River Club's dinner and show.
