Hippo Point House has seven double bedrooms, a secluded swimming pool, an open gazebo for invigorating body treatments, and a team of dedicated staff provide guests with the perfect base from which to enjoy the surrounding African wilderness.
A traditional English garden of scented roses and lush lawns contrasts sharply with the yellowish dusty tree trunks of the surrounding acacias; the resident buffalo, giraffe, hippo, zebra and gazelle off-set the soft, cozy comforts of Russian bed linen and warm wooden floors and bathtubs.
Hippo Point presents a wide variety of gourmet meals in settings as memorable as the food itself. Lakeside moonlit barbecues, colonial intimate silver serviced candle lit dinners, delicious breakfasts served under a canopy of towering acacias, al fresco swimming pool family buffets, inspiring sunsets on the lake, English colonial teas served on the cool veranda of the Tower.
Greens are offered from Hippo Point's own organic garden, and seafood and meat are brought in straight from the Indian Ocean or from nearby selected farms.
