Overall Impressions

Safari was an amazing experience. Saw wonderful wildlife, wonderful weather. Great staff at lodges and whilst on safari drives. Amazing experience to have such attention with limited amount of guests. Second part of trip to Mauritius was relaxing but not as much as a highlight as the safari.

Countries Visited

Mauritius 4

Mauritius had great scenery, although was a bit resort-ish with the amount of guests that were present, all appeared to be on honeymoon, which took away the uniqueness we had experienced in South Africa. Highlight - We found a horse riding centre in the south of the island, for which we hired a car to get to for the day. This was an amazing experience with the instructor Lindy and a great memory of an activity we wouldn't normally do in England.

South Africa 5

Kwandwe was a unique, special and an amazing experience. We wish to travel back in the future for a special occasion. Highlights - the whole experience was outstanding, with nothing to be faulted, there are too many highlights to list! Having wi-fi within the lodge was also beneficial.

Accommodation Visited

Kwandwe Great Fish River Lodge 5

Great Fish River Lodge was outstanding. The staff were knowledgeable, friendly and got to know you as a guest. A table for two was set for us in the library on our arrival night which was unique and special.

Belle Mare Plage 4

In comparison to Great Fish River Lodge Belle Mare Plage wasn't all inclusive, therefore the costs were recognised instantly with the drinks and lunchtime meals. Whilst staff were polite it didn't have the same atmosphere of Knwandwe as the guest numbers were greatly increased. Overall we enjoyed our stay at Belle Mare Plage very much.
