What a fantastic end to our holiday in South Africa. Although we only stayed 2 nights, not a moment was wasted. The hospitality we encountered, from the moment we arrived till the time of our reluctant departure, was outstanding. All the staff made us feel so welcome.
The tented accommodation was excellent, the view perfect and we loved the outside shower.
Be prepared to put on a few pounds as the food is plentiful, of excellent quality and beautifully prepared and presented.
Each of the game drives was brilliant even when it rained. The completely open vehicle we rode in made the experience really exhilarating. Rhynard (?? Sorry) our ranger guide was so enthusiastic, knowledgeable and entertaining, we can't imagine how our experience could have been bettered.
Thanks again Chantelle, Brent and all staff at HillsNek for a most memorable end to our holiday. We will return.
