Hippo Hollow Country Estate is nestled amongst lush indigenous gardens on the banks of the Sabi River in Hazyview, only ten minutes from the world famous Kruger National Park. The rooms either overlook the picturesque gardens with its two swimming pools or the mighty Sabi River.
Dine in the a la carte restaurant on a variety of mouth-watering dishes and enjoy a selection of South African wines from the cellar, whilst watching the grazing of the Hippopotamus on the lawn.
