Overall Impressions

So many highlights, visiting the beautiful winelands in cape town, the view from the top of table mountain, we could see for miles. Seeing 3 month old leopards on safari. Eating our fantasic evening meals round the pit fire in Thornybush. On the last night we had dinner on our veranda, the staff had lit lots of tealights and petals on the bed and in the bathroom and left a bottle of champagne - very romantic. Relaxing on a stunning beach in Mauritius and swimming in the crystal clear warm water. Not having to worry about transfers and having the trip planned for us to perfection. Completely stress free, which was a welcome relief after planning a wedding.

Countries Visited

Mauritius 5

Not having to leave resort if you don't want to, so able to be very relaxed. Lots of water sport activities available, numerous choices of restaurants at hotel. Perfect weather, beach and sea.

South Africa 5

Great restaurants and good wine (cheap)! Lots to do, eating seafood on waterfront. Trip to winelands to do some tasting. Dramatic landscape, coast, mountains and countryside all in one day.

Accommodation Visited

Cape Royale 5

The suite was very spacious (2 double rooms, 2 bathrooms!) and modern. Great location to waterfront. Helpful and friendly staff. Loved the roof terrace and pool.

Waterbuck Game Lodge 5

Beautiful room/lodge. Felt very intimate as only 4 rooms, so there were only 2 other couples with us there. Impressed by the food, and the staff were knowledgeable and very warm.

Trou aux Biches Resort & Spa 5

Luxurious and stunning. Perfect location on beach front. Loved our room, clean, contemporary.

Staff Review 5

Prompt and friendly service. The booking process was very easy, couldn't fault it.
