Overall Impressions

Perfect combination of city, country, beach, and nature.

Countries Visited

South Africa

Great diversity in landscape, rich history, wonderful people, and great food!

Accommodation Visited

Hotel Verde Cape Town Airport

The Clarendon Fresnaye

Great location, beautiful hotel, wonderful and helpful staff, and flawless attention to detail.

Oude Werf Hotel

Beautiful hotel and nice central location, but staff was not very friendly and tried too hard to sell "extras" that were not wanted (restaurant and wine tour).

Whale Rock Luxury Lodge

Gorgeous lodge but odd that staff was unavailable after 8PM. We wish we could have stayed another night to take advantage of the pool and facilities

Periwinkle Guest Lodge

Great staff, wonderful view, nice breakfast, simple rooms, fewer facilities

Sanctuary Makanyane Safari Lodge

Our stay at Makanyane was perfect from the moment we entered the lodge for the first time. The hotel is gorgeous, the staff was wonderful, friendly and attentive. The food was copious and delicious and we were absolutely spoiled. The game drive experience was more than we could have asked for or imagined - we wish we could have stayed longer, and will definitely make our way back to Makanyane if we're ever in South Africa again! By far, the best vacation experience we've ever had!

Staff Review

Donna was wonderful to work with, and did her best to accommodate our every request (despite many date changes!). Even if she was out of the office, she always responded quickly and helpfully, or at least pointed us to someone who could help in her absence. Donna designed an unforgettable honeymoon experience that far exceeded our expectations. Few set backs in regards to attention to detail (our itinerary was not always up to date when sent, and one of our invoices had an error in cost), but overall great.
