Overall Impressions

The whole trip was fantastic! A big thank you to Stuart for putting together our itiniery.

Countries Visited

South Africa

South Africa is one of the truly wonderful places on earth. Yes, it has its problems but it is going in the right direction. The people are warm, friendly and above all, proud of their country. It really is "Gods Garden".

Accommodation Visited

Four Rosmead Boutique Guesthouse

A wonderful stay in Cape Town, the hosts were so friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. Wonderful breakfasts and really great rooms. The location is perfect, quiet and close to everything.

Ocean Eleven Guest House

Only here for one night but what a wonderful guest house. The rooms are huge and so well appointed. The view from the bedroom is just breathtaking! Breakfast was really good, as where the hosts and their team. Agreat place to stay in Hermanus and we saw the whales!

De Zeekoe Guest Farm

A really relaxing place, wonderful four poster bed, great food and good facilities. The only problem was the meerkat visit. Due to intermitant internet service, we waited for the hotel to book my grandson and his partner on the trip. The internet was down so this could not be down and they said they would try later. By the time it was working, it was fully booked. We could have booked it ourselves but did not as we were waiting for the hotel to do it for us. Disapointing. We were given to understand that the hotel ran this particular excursion, which is not the case, it is an outside organisation. Again if we had realised sooner, we could have done it ourselves.

Hog Hollow Country Lodge

This is a truly special place . Everything here is absolutely brilliant, from the rooms, to the food, to the staff. The location is breathtaking, in the middle of a forest. Really relaxing especially by the pool which was so peaceful. Nothing was too much trouble and everyone was so friendly. A really great place.

Bayethe Tented Lodge, Shamwari Private Game Reserve

Shamwari is so special. A truly wonderful experience. The acomadation was really good and would have been so comfortable if it wasn't for the weather! Sadly, we had a three day cold front going through and it was so cold it chilled us too the bone! This, however, did not take away the fantastic experience that we had on the game drives, which were absolutely spectacular. We saw so many animals, four of the big five in the first two hours! Our ranger, Headman, is a truly wonderful man. His experience and knowledge is second to none and we would like to thank him for making our experience so brilliant. The food was wonderful and all the staff are so good, making your experience very special. It is a place not to be missed. Thank you.

Staff Review

Stuart Hall is a real asset to your company. Endlessly helpful, professional and a really nice guy to boot! You whole company is first class and We would recommend you to anyone. A lot of people that we met in South Africa had not heard of you, their loss! I made a point of telling them about you and your team. A wonderful experience for us all. Thank you so much.
