Overall Impressions

Amazing country, breathtaking scenery, very friendly people. Seein the big 5 plus southern right wales, seals, dolphins. All accomodation superb.

Countries Visited

Mauritius 4

What we saw was nice, but we hardly left the hotel. Did the quad bike in the federica nature reserve which was good. would like to revisit the island to see more of it.

South Africa 5

Weve visited quite a few countries and both my wife an i agree that South Africa is the best weve been to. Cape town and the surrounding area was amazing, people so friendly and felt quite safe. Kruger area also fantastic. We will definitly be going back to South Africa some day.

Accommodation Visited

Cape Riviera Guesthouse 5

very nice building in nice, safe residential area. Staff very welcoming and provided good advice on restaurants etc breakfast good. Slight downsides- main light in room was inadequate(too dim) and balcony doors banged in wind. But all in all very good 4.5/5

N'Kaya Game Lodge 5

Nice quiet intimate lodge, staff fantastic, meals good, game drives brilliant, nice to lounge by pool during the day and watch the Nyala's and Warthogs encroach into the grounds to graze. 5/5

Cybele Forest Lodge 5

Best staff i've ever encountered. Nothing too much trouble, friendly, very helpful in trying to re-arrange my balloon trip(which ended up being cancelled) food was excellent. Loved the panorama tour we did and also the romantic picnic by the waterfall which Cybele arranged. 5/5

The Sandton Sun 5

Really good business hotel in good area for shopping, nice food and atrium 5/5

Heritage Awali Golf & Spa Resort 4

Beautiful hotel, very clean, room nice and big with partial ocean view. Breakfast and Buffet restaurant good, service in certain area's slow. We were very rushed in infinity blue restaurant and didnt really enjoy that experience. Chateau restaurant good. Bar nice for drinks but entertainment a bit samey. All in all tho it was a nice end to the perfect honeymoon! 4/5
