Wow! The weirdest and most wonderful Christmas ever. This was the trip of a lifetime and boy, did it live up to expectations! Absolutely everything about Hillsnek is fantastic; the food (so beautifully presented), the game drives (even in the pouring rain!), the hot water bottles in the truck first thing in the morning, the lodge, the staff, our wonderful and knowledgeable guide, the stops for food in the most incredible spots with views to die for, the fabulous 5 star tents, waking in the morning to a tray of tea and panoramic views of the surrounding area, the list goes on and on. We cannot praise Hillsnek highly enough. Having just three tents made it a very personal experience. Thank you all for making our trip so wonderful!
