My husband and I visited South Africa for our honeymoon. We drove along the Garden Route before arriving at Hlosi. W O W. Where do I begin? On the day we checked in, we arrived about 45 minutes late for the evening game drive. Luckily, our driver, Jean Luke, waited for us! The staff at Hlosi is on another level. The second we arrived, they took our car and our luggage and told us to go to our game drive and enjoy! We returned to our delicious dinner waiting for us. Each day, we were spoiled with excellent service and food. Our room was beautiful and in between drives we enjoyed wine and watched animals from our deck. At dinner, the staff graced us with song and dance! The entire stay was an absolute dream. Our drives were amazing. We had Jean Luke as our driver for our entire stay. He is so knowledgeable and truly enjoys his job. He makes sure the guests see each animal at least once during their stay. The sunrises and sunsets were magical and we saw them each day out on the reserve. Our stay at Hlosi was the highlight of our honeymoon in South Africa. The food was excellent, the staff was spectacular and the actual hotel was a dream! Thank you so much!

Great safari experience!
It was an amazing place. The staff was very attentive and friendly. The game drives were very informative and our Ranger, Nathan, was both knowledgeable and funny. We got to see all the animals except for the elusive Leopard. Although it seemed expensive at first, when you figure out what you get, it was a good value. It was all inclusive, which meant an early morning tea before the drive, hot breakfast after, lunch, high tea, afternoon drive snack, dinner. There was no lack of food or drink... it was fabulous!! I highly recommend it.
