HillsNek is a delightful three-tent family-run property in the Amakhala Reserve in the malaria free Eastern Cape.
Built along the sides of a hill on the banks of the Bushman’s River, the lodge commands breathtaking views over the surrounding reserve, providing ongoing game-viewing opportunities.
Rooms are well-appointed and comfortable with decks and open showers, and the main lodge has a gorgeous pool area where guests can soak up the sun and the pleasure of being in this wilderness area.
The HillsNek service standards are high and you are warmly welcomed and cared for by staff and owners. The food is excellent, as is the game viewing in this Big 5 reserve, which boasts a wide variety of resident animals and birdlife.
HillsNek is in a malaria-free reserve in a pristine wilderness setting and is suitable for most travelers, as well as families and honeymooners at an excellent price point. It is cold in the winter months, May to August, but fine for the rest of the year.
