Overall Impressions

UNBELIEVABLE!! We had an absolute ball on our honeymoon! Each of the locations we visited were absolutely stunning, and the accommodation matched them in terms of standards, service and location.

Countries Visited

South Africa 5

Before we left we were a tiny bit apprehensive re security/safety but our time there absolutely banished any fears we had! The country is stunning and the people are so warm and welcoming. We will definitely return!

Mauritius 5

While we only did 1 day trip outside of the resort, the country is stunning! We some some of the countryside and it was amazing.

Accommodation Visited

The Clarendon Fresnaye 5

We cannot recommend The Clarendon Fresnaye enough! Emmy and her staff are absolutely fantastic and every day they went above and beyond. Every day Emmy was buzzing around the guests recommending tours and trips and imparting her local knowledge, and it was so helpful to have that! It's a beautiful hotel and such a lovely change from the large chain hotels. We were so so happy with our 5 nights here, the only downside was having to leave!!

River Manor Boutique Hotel & Spa 4

Very nice hotel, we just weren't there long enough to really enjoy the hotel. We also had an early start the second morning we were there so couldn't make breakfast. We didn't have much interaction with the staff but Tanya was very nice and welcoming.

Amakhala Bush Lodge 5

Like The Clarendon Fresnaye, we cannot rate Bush Lodge highly enough! On top of the wonderful game drives, the accommodation was absolutely stunning! From the large bathtub, to the outside plunge pool and showers, the chalets were far from tented accommodation - they were pure luxury! The staff were also so wonderful and helpful, by the end of our time there we felt like they were friends! Miena, Tim, Ryanholt, Jacques were all wonderful and clearly passionate about their jobs - something wonderful to see!

Heritage Awali Golf & Spa Resort 5

pure bliss!!! The accommodation was stunning and pure relaxation! the food, drink, service, and location all made for a wonderful break after the hectic couple of weeks! We had a ball here and the all-inclusive nature of the stay meant that it was a real treat.

Staff Review 5

Again, cannot fault the service from Nikki. From our initial contact, Nikki understood what we were looking for. Other tour operators didn't listen to what we wanted and gave us generic quotes but Nikki delivered on exactly what we wanted. She was quick to reply to any queries before we left, even late at night and at weekends which showed exceptional customer service levels! Everything went so smoothly on our honeymoon that we didn't need to get in touch with Nikki while we were away. Thanks so much Nikki for making our honeymoon the trip of a lifetime!
