Overall Impressions

Perfect honeymoon! The trip was an amazing mix of city, wine country, safari and beach. The logistics were seamless and Mahlatini's recommendations were spot on.

Countries Visited

South Africa


Accommodation Visited

Cape Cadogan Boutique Hotel

Wonderful home base for exploring Cape Town. We were very happy to stay near Kloof St -- the V&A waterfront felt too touristy for us.

Babylonstoren Farm Hotel

Babylonstoren is amazing! I'm so glad we spent Christmas Day here so we could explore the farm without the crowds. I would recommend that guests take advantage of all that Babylonstoren has to offer instead of just using it as a home base for exploring wine country.

Simbambili Game Lodge

We were on a 6 hour a day thrill ride! We weren't sure what to expect with Safari and the experience blew us away. Our ranger Mike was truly incredible at finding amazing game experiences and we loved the different dining and hospitality experiences at the lodge.

Benguerra Island Lodge

Wow! This was such an amazing place. The hospitality, food, accommodations were top notch. Perfect way to cap off a wonderful honeymoon.

Staff Review

Nikki was fabulous! We had not worked with a travel agent before so we weren't sure what to expect. She was so patient with us as we weighed different options and gave us very helpful personal experience about the safari experience and her own travels. The logistics were truly seamless and we will absolutely recommend Nikki + Mahlatini to friends. The only thing I would have improved upon would be a list of itinerary recommendations (activities, restaurants + wineries) for Capetown and Winelands because we found it hard to narrow down our itinerary to just a few short days in each place.
