Overall Impressions

We enjoyed every aspect of our honeymoon, particularly the stay in the Woodbury lodge on safari. We saw some incredible things, including lions on the hunt, elephants drinking right next to our jeep and having a sundowner in the bush right next to a group of giraffes. In Cape Town, we visited the oldest township - Langa, went on a tour of the winelands, drove to Cape Point and went to Simon's Town to see the penguins. Mauritius was beautiful, the weather was fabulous even though it was their 'winter'. We saw whales swimming just by our hotel and also had the chance to swim with dolphins. All in all, an amazing experience!!

Countries Visited

Accommodation Visited

Cape Cadogan Boutique Hotel 5

An absolutely wonderful hotel. We received in free upgrade to the presidential suite which was fabulous...a private terrace with our own pool, a lovely fire in the bedroom. The service was wonderful, every member of staff went out of their way to make our stay extra special.

Amakhala Woodbury Lodge 5

The Woodbury Lodge was absolutely perfect. Our game drives were incredible and our guide made sure we saw as much of the bush and its amazing wildlife as possible. The food was fabulous and the service was extremely personal.

Maritim Hotel Mauritius 4

The hotel was beautiful. The beach surrounding the hotel is like paradise. The all inclusive package was not amazing as you could only actually eat in two of the restaurants for free and it was very difficult to book in to one of these

Staff Review 5

Claire was very helpful and responded quickly to e-mails (even ones I sent outside of office hours). She helped us to arrange a honeymoon that was just perfect for us.
