Overall Impressions

The trip was amazing. It was an experience of a lifetime. We really looked forward to it for a long time and everything came out perfect!

Countries Visited

South Africa

Cape Town was a great city to begin the trip. The waterfront was a beautiful place to go and Table Mountain was a really incredible place to hike! The Cape Peninsula tour to the Cape of Good Hope was a must. There were so many great times with our guide Lazarus. He definitely made our trip special.


We loved the Four Seasons at Anahita but didn't leave the resort except for airport transfers so we can't give it a fair judgement but the mountains and everything gave it a unique feel and the resort was beautiful. We weren't able to get in touch with our Connections representative when we were down there.

Accommodation Visited

Cape Cadogan Boutique Hotel

The hotel had an awesome unique feel. The shuttle transfer was great to get to the waterfront and restaurants. They had a nice fire going the whole time and the breakfast was amazing.

Ngala Safari Lodge

The most amazing experience. We loved everything from Amy upon on arrival to the staff. Nicholas the butler was great and helpful. Our tracker Weisman and our ranger Ruel were great people. They were so knowledgable and personable. We were able to see the Big 5 and more and had 19 elephants come to the pool to drink and play around! Amy placed our jeep with all honeymoon couples and it was overall a great time. We met great people and cannot say enough good things about it.

Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita

The Four Seasons was a beautiful resort with plenty of included activities. We were able to lounge if we wanted or wakeboard when we felt. The boat trip to the private island was a really nice time. For food there were three choices which all had great food. There were a ton of wines to choose from. The breakfast spread was incredible.

Staff Review

Monique was great to work with. She was very patient. We asked her tons of questions and she was always timely in her responses. She made everything easier to plan and communication was excellent especially while we were on the trip.
