Overall Impressions

We had the most amazing honeymoon and couldn't have asked for a better itinerary or guidance. We had all of the information we needed to make the trip smooth and just enjoy our time and enjoy each other.

Countries Visited

South Africa 5

Everyone we met was so kind, friendly, welcoming and helpful. We had the best hospitality while we were there. The country is BEAUTIFUL and so diverse. We were grateful that we were able to see several cities/regions while we were there.

Accommodation Visited

The Clarendon Fresnaye 5

We loved the location and quantness of this accommodation. The staff was extremely helpful with making restaurant recommendations, helping with directions and checking in to find out how we were enjoying ourselves. It really started our trip off on a good note and we wish we could have stayed in Cape Town one extra day. While in Cape Town we really enjoyed our run with Phillipa and eating at The Codfather (our favorite the entire trip!!!) as we well as Kloof Street House.

Rusthuiz Guest House 4

We liked this accommodation, but didn't realize that Stellenbosch was going to be such a college town.....the semester was ending while we were there. The staff was friendly and the accommodations were great and clean. The parking situation was a little tricky because the parking lot wasn't big enough and we would have to leave our keys in a safe that was sometimes hard to open. The walls were also thin and our neighbors were quite loud which made falling asleep somewhat challenging.

Beachy Head Villa 4

We loved the location of this accommodation....perfect access to the beach without having to get in a car and drive! The room was really nice however it was in the basement which made access to the WiFi challenging (i.e.: it didn't work in the basement). The staff was helpful and the breakfast was really good. We did have some issues checking out because we had to leave early for our flight and settle up our bill, but they couldn't find a staff member to help us do this (run our credit card). We finally just ended up leaving cash with them so we could get on the road to make our flight.

Kirkman's Kamp 5

If we could give 6 out of 5 on this accommodation we would. WOW, service was exceptional. Room spectacular. Food amazing, Staff over the top wonderful and friendly. Safari guides incredible. We loved everything about our time at Kirkman's Kamp! This was truly the highlight of our trip. Would change absolutely nothing here!!!

Staff Review 5

Greg was AWESOME! Super helpful, responsive and kind. He went out of his way to make sure we had the most amazing honeymoon and trip to South Africa. We are so grateful that our friend Ann introduced us to him. We both are so busy with our job and Christine has had multiple foot surgeries this year so it was really hard to find the time to worry about planning our honeymoon (eeek!), but we knew we were in good hands with Greg and that he would make sure we had a fantastic trip and we did. We loved that he connected us with Phillipa from Run Cape Town and that running experience was one of our favorite on the trip.
