HillsNek Safaris is an exclusive-use, luxury tented camp positioned on the banks of the Bushmans River.
Situated in a tucked away corner of a renowned Big 5 game reserve, the lodge is 70km`s from Port Elizabeth in the malaria-free Eastern Cape. An abundant variety of wildlife includes white and black rhino, elephant, giraffe, cheetah, lion, buffalo, zebra and a myriad of plains game.
The stone, canvas and thatched main lodge is at the heart of the camp, with three private safari tents elevated on wooden decks that enhance the spectacular views of surrounding plains and bush.
The luxurious tented accommodation and the unique setting create a feeling of being at one with the African landscape, its sights, sounds and smells. This is how the early explorers experienced the magical and awe-inspiring continent of Africa!
Home to the first dinosaur fossil discovery in South Africa, the Cape Iguanodon, Hillsnek Safaris is committed to the conservation of palaentology and the preservation of this historically significant site.
Our attention to luxury, detail and comfort, combined with the unsurpassed exclusivity of a dedicated host, ranger and chef, allows guests the ultimate privilege of being able to customize and personalize their safari.
The stone, canvas and thatch main lodge consists of an open plan lounge, kitchen and dining-room. For those pleasant evenings, the outside dining facility and fireplace is a wonderful option.
The entire canvas front of the lodge can be opened up to best appreciate the surrounding vegetation and landscape. Spectacular views are enjoyed over the Bushman’s River and on to the not to distant expansive plains, where a variety of wildlife can be viewed or even better so, from the comfort of your private safari tent.
