Hippo Hollow Country Estate


Holiday with the hippos of Sabi

Hippo Hollow Country Estate is situated outside Hazyview on the Sabi 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.

The full-service Hippo Hollow restaurant and bar overlook the Sabi River and offer country cuisine and a fine-wine selection. The sight of kingfishers and other beautiful water birds as well as hippos grazing on the lawns make dining here a truly unique 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: 18 Family Chalets on the river, 19 king-or-twin-bed Chalets set in a sub-tropical garden and over 50 Hotel Rooms.
