Overall Impressions

An unforgettable experience in beautiful places. Something we will both treasure the memories of forever!

Countries Visited

South Africa

We loved everything about SA. The places we stayed were beautiful, the Safari was the experience of a life time and we even got to see the endangered and rarely sighted Pangolin. Cape Town was amazing and we managed to fit in so much even on a short stay: Boulders Beach, Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, Cape Point and Cape of Good Hope. We cannot wait for the opportunity to go back there. The people we met were so lovely and we've made many new friends!


Mauritius is a beautiful island and the resort we stayed in was lovely however it was incredibly expensive compared to SA so felt a little bit less value for money. That being said we had a wonderful time here with waterfall quad bike tours, giant tortoises, beautiful beaches and fabulous cocktails!

Accommodation Visited

Ngala Safari Lodge

The lodge and the people here were wonderful. So flexible and accommodating (especially while we got into the swing of the early starts!) We had some incredible experiences: a pride of lions with 7 cubs including a white lion cub; elephants playing in the mud with buffalo! Just amazing!

Heritage Le Telfair Golf & Wellness Resort

Beautiful hotel with lovely facilities. We loved the spa and the wide range of activities here: dance lessons; cooking; sports. Beautiful beach and restaurants. The only slight downside was that staff were so overly attentive it almost became a little intrusive but it certainly didn't spoil our trip!

The Clarendon Bantry Bay

Beautiful boutique hotel. Stunning sunsets from the balcony every night. A bespoke service as a small number of guests meant the staff could really get to know you. A little outside of town but on the hop on hop off sightseeing bus route which we used most days. A beautiful place that we would highly recommend.

Staff Review

Bjorn was fantastic from start to finish including assistance while we were away with flight alterations and extra queries. We would absolutely use Mahlatini again in the future! Thank you for making our honeymoon an unforgettable experience.
