Honeymoon to South Africa and Mauritius during September 2012

Customer Review

Everything ran smoothly during the two week trip and we had no worries/concerns at any time as everything had been well planned and organised in advance of travel. The highlight of the trip was definitely the game reserve and Cape town - the location and the accommodation was great!
