Location: Anew Hotel Hluhluwe & Safaris is set on the picturesque Elephant Coast, north of KwaZulu-Natal. The area is known for its Big 5 and cultural offerings.
First impression: A safari-style hotel that is close to many attractions in Hluhluwe. For a three-star-hotel, it exudes sophistication with its chic and wildlife inspired decor.
Who visits here: International travellers frequent the hotel. You may also find local couples or large groups of family.
Check-in: Check-in was effortless and one of the staff members ran through the day’s itinerary and directed me to my room.
The staff: Staff that I interacted with were friendly and answered my every beck and call (if asking for an iron at 8pm is considered that).
