Having seen a lot of africa already (even lived there for a while...;) this was the best place we could have made no better choice. Magnificent setting, immaculat tents (with a lovely bath inside and a beautiful shower outside overlooking the landscape) and lounge area including a beautiful pool, excellent meals, very good wine, warmest hospitality and a very good ranger...! But the best thing is that you are always on your own there. The policy of this place is to have only one group/family at the time. So we and our son had the place for us alone. We were treated like in heaven and enjoyed our time sooo much. We come back - definetly!!!! Brent the owner and proprietor is there when you need / want him and pulls back when he feels that you need a rest or want tobe as a family. Thank so much - all of Hillsnek safaris - again for the special days we had at the amakala game reserve.
