Hippo Hideaway offers the perfect balance between communing with nature and luxuriating with all of life’s creature comforts. Not only is the lodge situated on the St Lucia main road, giving you convenient access to the shops and restaurants in the area, but it is also rests alongside the beautiful St Lucia estuary. Explore the unspoilt, expansive beaches of the Elephant Coast, catch up with the Big 5 at the famous Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Game Reserve or revel in the unsurpassed fishing, birding, whale-watching and walking opportunities provided by the iSimangaliso Wetlands Park. And when you are tired of sightseeing, return to your home away from home and discover that Hippo Hideaway does it all with style and service.
Book for a stay in our two- or four-sleeper chalets and find yourself relaxing in a beautifully appointed and decorated apartment that combines the luxury of a hotel along with the privacy of a self-catering resort. From air conditioned rooms to satellite TV, braai facilities and fully equipped kitchens, you’ll find everything you need to make your stay a pleasurable one.
If you’re thinking of bringing the whole family along for the ride you’ll be pleased to learn that the resort is wonderfully family and child-friendly. There is a central thatched boma with tables and benches, great for socialising in the evenings. Mindful of your little ones, the swimming pool is fully fenced and the entrance gates latched. A jungle gym and hammocks will have both young and old outside and enjoying the clean air.
So, take a trip to Hippo Hideaway and find yourself on an African adventure. You might even get to see a hippo or two ramble across the lawn in search of a late-night snack.
