Overall Impressions

The safari was amazing! We also really enjoyed Camps Bay, Stellanbosch and Hermanus. We had a little problem in Hermanus regarding accomodation but Mahlatini had it sorted in 20 mins via a phone call. That was excellent service.

Countries Visited

South Africa 5

Amazing. The people are very friendly to us, the food was excellent and relatively cheap (some restaurants were a little more expensive, but generally its cheap to eat there). Camps Bay was amazing, Stellanbosch was quaint and "old town" style, Hermanus was cool (watching wales from the shore), Pletternberg Bay was poor I thought - 1 day is enough there (we spent 3) and finally...the Amakalha safari was unreal!!!

Accommodation Visited

Auberge Burgundy Guest House 1

We did not stay here. We were promised a suite but when we arrived they allocated us a "room", which was something you'd expect in a week long ?250 all inclusive holiday in Turkey...yes, that includes flights! Claire at Mahlatini was on the ball though and sorted us with fantastic alternative accomodation within 20 mins.

Amakhala Bush Lodge 5

What a place and what service! I can say no more to justify it.

Ocean View House 5

Fantastic - amazing views and really helpful and friendly staff. Breakfast is just ok, but everything else makes up for it.

Bosavern Guest House 5

Fantastic views and lovely guest house owners who could not have been more helpful. Really modern designed house as well.

Staff Review 5

Being able to arrange alternative with accomodation for us in Hermanus via a phone call was excellent and appreciated. Nice to deal with and her local knowledge of our destinations before we booked was very helpful.
