Overall Impressions

There are really too many to mention in the short time we were away. It was a brilliant trip and made allt he better for having someone who knew the country and could guide us towards the right activites and places. Off the top of my head, highlights were cage diving with sharks, hiking the Lion's Head, dinner in Camp's Bay, abseiling off Table Mountain, sea kayaking in Plett (right next to a Cape Fur Seal colony!) and of course the safari (getting to see so many animals up close & personal).

Accommodation Visited

Cape Riviera Guesthouse 5

Owen & Lisa were brilliant. They took really good care of us and ensured that we were never at a loss for things to see and do or places to eat. Their recommendations for restaurants were always top notch. The actual room was lovely with plenty of space. They clearly love what they were doing and their service was exceptional.

River Manor Boutique Hotel & Spa 5

Justin and his staff were very attentive. They even upgraded us for the second night to a bigger room (even thought the first one was fine!). The buildings were old colonial style which fit in perfectly with Stellenbosch's style. His recommendation of the Farmer's market on the Sat morning was superb. Just a shame that we could not spend longer in the area.

Bosavern Guest House 5

Viv & Gerald took a real interest in what their guests were doing each day. Viv in particular was very sociable and always looked to include everyone (by introducing guests to one another). The guest house was brilliant (very new feel to it) and well located to Plettenberg bay.

Amakhala Woodbury Tented Camp 5

The team at the camp were awesome. The Ranger really knew his stuff and clearly displayed a passion for his work. Getting so close to the game was incredible and we managed to get some sensational pictures. Definitely a once-in-a-lifetime experience and certainly one which we shall never forget.

Staff Review 5

Claire was very knowledgeable and passionate about S.A. She also took the time to find out exactly what we wanted from our holiday as well as booking certain day trips for us before we arrived. The travel pack and information contained within it was excellent. Claire's involvement just meant that we were totally ready for the holiday and that it flowed seemlessly from place to place. We could never have done half of what we ended up doing if we had tried to do it all ourselves.
