Overall Impressions

The whole honemoon was amazing and with a perfect mix of city/beach/nature/wildlife. The hotels were great and the game drives were a fantastic experience.

Countries Visited

Accommodation Visited

The Clarendon Fresnaye 5

The Clarendon was amazing and the staff were ever so helpful. Our luggage got lost on the way to South Africa and Emmy was an absolute gem in phoning to chase it for us and making sure we got it back! Breakfast was brilliant and we really liked the location, so close to the beachfront. The staff were able to give some really good restaurant recommendations and tips on where to go and what to do, which was great.

Beachy Head Villa 4

We really enjoyed the accommodation with the amazing seaview from our room, and we thought the breakfast was really nice. Service was not quite as welcoming as we experienced in many other places in South Africa and the fact that the hotel was a bit away from the centre with no restaurants nearby meant that one couldn't really enjoy a dinner out with wine and a stroll home after.

Amakhala Bukela Game Lodge 5

Fantastic acommodation with lovely food and wine. Service was really good with the staff even going the extra mile to prepare a special last night for us as it was our last night in SA and last night of honeymooning - they had prepared a dinner for two in front of the fire in our private lodge, with the jacuzzi bath prepared (complete with rose petals in the foam) and a complimentary bottle of lovely Soth African sparkling wine and chocolates. The game drives were brilliant with a very knowlesgeable ranger who was keen to show us all that the reserve had to offer and we felt very well taken care of.

Staff Review 5

Greg was brilliant and could not have been more helpful - from the start when he provided four different suggested itineraries right throughout the planning and preparation stage until after the honeymoon. He is very knowledgeable and service minded, one thing I really appreciate is his quick responses to emails - usually within minutes! I have already recommended him to two colleagues and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who is looking for a honeymoon or even 'just' a holiday in South Africa.
