Hippo Hollow Country Estate

Enquire Now

On the backs of the Sabie River, within easy reach of the Kruger National Park, Hippo Hollow is a gracious enclave amidst acres of landscaped gardens on a country estate.


The 37 thatched semi-self catering chalets, 26 hotel rooms and 28 deluxe rooms are tastefully decorated in a timeless ‘Out of Africa’ theme and overlook picturesque gardens, perfect for the avid bird watcher.


The thatched a la carte restaurant and central area provide guests the opportunity of spotting hippos grazing along the banks of the river. Enjoy fine South African wines from the cellar, whilst hearing the laughter of the hippopotamus, or shop up a storm in our curio shop. The tranquil environment invites leisurely relaxation beside one of the two swimming pools, or by enjoying sundowners against the backdrop of a glorious sunset.


A variety of activities await you, from open vehicle safaris in the Kruger National Park, to helicopter adventures swooping over mysterious gorges, roaring rivers and cascading waterfalls, to whitewater rafting and horse-riding, or just relax by taking a beautifully prepared picnic to the river. Shopping is endless at Perry’s Bridge Trading Post, a mere two minutes walk from Hippo Hollow.

Hippo Hollow has become popular for its tribute to Africa, the Shangaan River Club. Hippo Hollow in conjunction with the local community has come together to provide a “Feast of Culture.” The River Club not only offers a glorious traditional African dinner, but a blend of history and entertainment under the African Night Sky.
