Hilltop Camp


Hilltop Camp is situated on the summit of a forested hill offers fine views of the surrounding countryside. Hilltop Camp is the oldest camp in KwaZulu-Natal and was extensively rebuilt and enlarged in the early nineties. Today accommodation at Hilltop Camp ranges from a luxury lodge to a variety of superbly appointed self-catering accommodation facilities. All units at Hilltop Camp are serviced daily. From the bottom of the price range up, facilities include: twenty 2-bedded rondavels with communal ablutions and kitchens; seven 2-bedded and twenty-two 4-bedded self-catering chalets. Twenty 2-bedded chalets, which are not self-catering, are within close proximity to the main reception area. This area includes an a la carte restaurant, an attractive pub and lounge decorated with photographs and memorabilia of the history of Hluhluwe, as well as a gift shop and convenience store.

A forest trail is available to guests at Hilltop. Hlaza Hide has been developed at the site of the old summerhouse in Hilltop Camp and it will shortly incorporate a waterhole with soft lighting at night to aid game viewing.

Hilltop Camp's Mpunyane Restaurant offers a full English buffet breakfast every day. Lunches from Monday to Saturday are a la carte and on Sundays a hot and cold buffet. Dinners are either a hot and cold buffet or a traditional braai(barbeque) depending on the weather. Dinner arrangements do change according to guest profiles and holidays.
