Overall Impressions

Excellent But too long in some places and would have been bored but for the fact we played golf 7 times

Countries Visited

South Africa 3

A beautiful country but not too relaxing from the social point of view

Accommodation Visited

Le Quartier Francais 5

Lovely place but food not great unless you wish for the tasting menu . Thankfully other good resturants in town

La Plume Guest House 2

In the middle of no where with some over grown chickens . Food not great and with another hours driving we could have been in Francourt . A waste of two nights .

Fancourt Hotel 4

Wonderful golf courses and nice staff . Luckly it was half empty as if full eating would have been a nightmare .

The Turbine Boutique Hotel & Spa 5

Knysnea ha not got much to offer but eating in the Fresh Line was v good and golf in Samola fun . Hotel good

The Sands @ St Francis 5

Great spot with excellent staff and good food . There is little to do at St Francis Bay but played golf twice .

Fairmont Zimbali Lodge 3

Lodge dated and the only meal worth having was a reasonable breakfast . In the complex the only good restaurant was at the hotel which was unavailable the night we tried to go so we had to go into town .If one did not have a car it would have been dreadful . Golf course again came to our rescue .

Phinda Forest Lodge 4

Lovely staff and food . It is more like a hotel than a safari camp . It was apparent to one who has been on a lot of safaris that the game park is to an extent a huge zoo .

Thonga Beach Lodge 4

Lovely place and great staff .Food quite good .4 nights would have been enough and too long a journey for what it had to offer .Left after 5 nights

Staff Review 5

Claire has been most attentive and patient with a very difficult customer !
