About Hippo House

This gorgeous lakeside home is brimming with color and character. The house is perfect for large groups and it is set on a hill with sweeping views of the Lake and the surrounding game reserve. Relax on the patio, take long walks to see the game & bird life on the island or cruise the lake shore on a boat. At Hippo House you will enjoy a true safari experience but with the all comforts of home.
