Overall Impressions

All the hotels were amazing! South Africa was really easy to drive in despite never using the "British-style driving". We loved almost every restaurant we ate at and all recommendations from hotel staff were spot on with our style. Above all we loved the nature South Africa had to offer.

Countries Visited

South Africa 5

South Africa has beautiful nature. We loved all the animals and the conservation willingness. Architecture was modern yet colonial - very beautiful. The food and wine in this country are amazing. We felt very safe, but we were also not careless! We fell in love with this country and would definitely return.

Accommodation Visited

The Marine 5

The Marine was clearly the best hotel in Hermanus. The rooms were beautiful!!! The staff was so friendly and helpful. This hotel had the best breakfast out of all the hotels we stayed at. We loved staying at this hotel.

River Manor Boutique Hotel & Spa 5

River Manor was located on a beautiful property within walking distance to town. The rooms and bathrooms were quaint. Patrick was knowledgeable and friendly. The breakfast was good.

Cape Riviera Guesthouse 5

Cape Riviera was a great hotel to stay at in Cape Town. It was in a safe location and Lisa and Owen were very kind and helpful. It was very easy to get to the waterfront as well as any highway. The bedrooms were spacious and clean and the bathroom seemed recently renovated. We enjoyed their bathtub the most!

N'Kaya Game Lodge 5

Excellent, excellent, excellent! We loved staying here! Our chalet was amazing, with 2 bathrooms, a living room and bedroom. The food was wonderful. There was really a laid-back vibe to this property which we both loved. Our game drives were awesome. We saw all the Big 5. We saw leopard everyday! And we saw leopard cubs! Bert and Andres were amazing guides. This part of the trip was very educational for us, which we really enjoyed.

Staff Review 5

Adam was really great to work with. He was very patient and helped us plan our last minute honeymoon! He was always polite and friendly on the phone. He sent us wonderful detailed trip choices for us to make an informed decision.
