Hilltop Camp

Kwazulu Natal Safari, South Africa

Hilltop Camp is set on the summit of a forested hill inside Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Park and has stupendous views over the Reserve. Operated by KZN Wildlife, which manages all the public reserves, accommodation is in simple but comfortable one- and two bedroom self-catering chalets. There is a shop to purchase food, but also a very decent restaurant. You can drive yourself around the reserve, but the lodge also offers game drives in open vehicles and guided game walks. We also recommend a stay at Ntshondwe Camp in Ithala Game Reserve, an area of rugged, mountainous thornveld, rich in game. Ithala is a particularly scenic reserve overlooking the Pongola River Valley Hilltop Camp is a winner of the British Airways ‘Tourism for Tomorrow’ award.

Accommodation Reviews

For us this was an ideal location within the national game reserve. The decor of the chalet was a little tired, but it was well equipped, so we were able to self-cater very easily. The shop was closed while we were there, but we didn't get the impression in had much by way of food, so were glad we had shopped on the way. We didn't try the restaurant, but the menu suggested that it provides a good buffet. Similarly, we didn't go on any of their game drives, but drove ourselves. Our 2x4 was good for this, but I am sure a normal car would have been fine too. We saw plenty of game, including lots of white rhino. Only one family of lion, but we had understood that this isn't the ideal place for big cats. We liked the spaciousness of the Camp site, with lots of greenery and a nice swimming pool.
