Overall Impressions

Highlight: Safari in the madikwe game reserve and the madikwe game lodge. Everything about the place was fantastic!

Countries Visited

Mauritius 5

Beautiful Island and truly like paradise. Very focused on staying within the resort but there are a few day trips available. The highlight for us was a boat trip where we got to swim with dolphins and snorkel. It was a great day out. We also rented a car and explored some of the island, it was good and there were a number of sights to visit. We rented the car for just a day and we felt that was enough. We would not return to Mauritius because we fell that we saw enough of it on our trip to satisfy us.

South Africa 5

South Africa was amazing. We only saw a small section of it and were very impressed, we would love to return to explore more of the country as were heard great things about other areas. We would also return to the Madikwe game reserve as we loved the safari and the accommodation.

Accommodation Visited

Madikwe Safari Lodge 5

We loved this place. The staff were great, the accommodation was fantastic and the food was to die for. The safari drives were amazing and we saw so much even on the first day! We felt so at home and so well looked after, we couldn't ask for better.

Tamassa Resort 5

We loved the Tamassa but after our experience at the madikwe safari lodge it compares less well! This is a personal preference and nothing against the Tamassa. We were ell looked after and everything we needed was available to us but the resort was too big for us. Other than that, it was an amazing place and an amazing resort. The accommodation was very comfortable, the food was delicious with plenty of choice and the all inclusive package was fantastic.

Staff Review 5

The service was great. We were in contact with Sarah Fox and Maura O'Neill and they were both extremely helpful and friendly.
