Overall Impressions

Our trip was incredible. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. Were so sad to come home at the end of it!

Countries Visited

South Africa

Beautiful country. Extremely friendly people. Great food. Everything we did in South Africa was amazing.


Most beautiful beaches we have ever seen. Explored different beaches on Praslin & La Digue and every one had clear blue water and white sand.

United Arab Emirates

Didn't leave the airport. Only had overnight layover there.

Accommodation Visited

Cloud 9 Boutique Hotel and Spa

Very cool hotel. Great location. We were able to walk to dinner two nights we were there. All the staff were very friendly and helpful with whatever we needed. Rooftop bar with a great view of Table Mountain.

Avondrood Guest House

Great accommodations. Room was very comfortable. Loved that we had a wood burning fireplace in the room. Staff gave us great recommendations on what to do around town. We were the only people staying at the hotel so made the experience even more special.

Ngala Safari Lodge

The highlight of our trip. We left Ngala almost two weeks ago and still can't stop talking about how great it was. Food was delicious. Room was perfect. Loved the staff. Our driver & tracker were the best. Will surely recommend this lodge to anyone I know interested in going on safari.

Hotel L'Archipel

Beautiful hotel. Went to the beach and pool everyday. Our only complaint here was that we weren't notified about the special honeymoon dinner on the last night. We were told that since our package wasn't all inclusive, we would have had to pay extra for it.

Premier Inn Abu Dhabi International Airport

Hotel was fine. Only spent a few hours here as we had overnight layover.

Staff Review

Donna was great! Everyone we worked with was extremely helpful and very easy to work with. Will certainly recommend Donna & Mahlatini to others that are interested in a honeymoon to Africa.
