Step into a world where the noise and chaos of the modern world fade away, and serenity embraces you at every turn. At Hitgeheim Country Lodge, your journey is a voyage into a haven of peace, offering authentic South African hospitality, exceptional dining, and the thrill of Malaria-Free Wildlife Safaris that overflow with adventure and excitement.

Embrace the Wilderness

Nestled just moments away from the renowned Addo Elephant National Park, Hitgeheim Country Lodge invites you to discover the magic of one of Africa’s most successful conservation projects. The Addo Elephant National Park, the 3rd largest in South Africa, is home to unique tuskless African Elephant herds and an array of captivating wildlife. Our strategic location offers you the chance to partake in thoughtfully arranged safaris within the park, where you’ll witness these majestic creatures in their natural habitat, alongside other remarkable species like the disease-free African Buffalo.

A Unique Safari Experience

At Hitgeheim, we pride ourselves on merging the best of two worlds: the grandeur of a National Park and the exclusivity of a Private Game Reserve. This blend creates an unparalleled wildlife experience that’s perfect for both seasoned enthusiasts and newcomers to the wonders of Africa’s wildlife. Join our skilled guides on an unforgettable journey, exploring the park’s vibrant ecosystems from the comfort of our luxurious open safari vehicles. The splendour of our safari experiences is further enriched by the opportunity to combine our in-house Addo Elephant Park Safaris with the “Tooth and Claw Safari” at the Schotia Private Game Reserve. It’s a safari immersion that promises to be a highlight of your adventure.

Delight in South African Flavors

Indulge in the rich tapestry of South African cuisine at our dining table. From traditional “South African Braai” to the fascinating array of African Tribal dishes, you’ll embark on a culinary journey that introduces you to the essence of the region. Our dining spaces, including the breakfast and barbecue deck, offer breathtaking views that complement the flavours on your plate.
