Donna Bernier, Charlotte, NCWhen I first decided that South Africa would be my time away from everyday life, the Hills of Africa team (Meredith and Sandy) became my surrogate family to help me realize my “adventure of a lifetime”. My adventure was everything I anticipated and more. Andre, my SA guide, was instrumental in the “more” part of the journey. His wealth of knowledge and planning every day made each day a mini-adventure. For the first time, I truly enjoyed a holiday without any stress and complete enjoyment. The bonus was the personal growth gained during my journey.
