As a frequent visitor to upmarket safari lodges (Madikwe, Hluluwe, Kruger), I rate this one amongst the best.
The camp is small (3 luxurious tents, each tucked away from each other) and you do not share the camp with other visitors. The service is completely personalised and catering for all needs. Accommodation, Staff, Food and the Tour Guide were all excellent.
This is a 5* resort Safari Lodge. Highly recommendable.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- HillsNek Safaris is an intimate, luxury tented camp positioned on the banks of the Bushmans River. Situated in a tucked away corner of the Amakhala Big 5 Game Reserve, the lodge is 70km's from Port Elizabeth in the malaria-free Eastern Cape. An abundant variety of wildlife includes white and black rhino, elephant, giraffe, cheetah, lion, buffalo, zebra and a myriad of plains game. The stone, canvas and thatched main lodge is at the heart of the camp, with three private safari tents elevated on wooden decks that enhance the spectacular views of surrounding plains and bush. All tents have panoramic views of the African plains, and game viewing can often be enjoyed from the comfort of your bed. Personalized service and outstanding hospitality is the hallmark of every stay. ... more less
