Travelers' Choice
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 lion,rhino, elephant, giraffe, cheetah, buffalo, zebra and a myriad of plains game. The stone, canvas and thatched main lodge is at the heart of the camp, with four 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.

Had the absolute best getaway with my family to Hillsnek for my birthday. They made the whole wknd so incredibly special from a welcome board to a surprise birthday cake and even a surprise crumpet breakfast in the field while on the game drive!! I highly recommend them and would always go back to them for another break when needed. It really is a little piece of heaven on earth there!!

Our travel agent was concerned that we would get bored in such a small game lodge for 5 days and I felt like I could have stayed longer. Hillsnek was the perfect personal getaway due to being small and highly personalised. We had amazing sightings with Chris who was incredibly knowledgable as a guide. We loved every minute of our stay and my kids are already asking when can we go back.
