Overall Impressions

The whole honeymoon was amazing, the highlights were definitely the 4 days safari and probably the wine tasting in stellenbosh.

Countries Visited

Mauritius 4

The food and watersports. Mauritius is paradise.

South Africa 5

Safari and Stellebosh. I loved South Africa and definitely want to go back, there is so much to see and the people are so nice.

Accommodation Visited

River Manor Boutique Hotel & Spa 5

We got upgraded to a bigger room as soon as we arrived, the room was amazing and would definitley recommend to anyone. The River manor is a beautiful location and the rooms do not disappoint. The staff were extremely helpful and went above and beyond to make our stay great.

Cape Riviera Guesthouse 5

After reading a few of the reviews on tripadvisor we were a bit worried about staying here but there was no need to worry at all. Again the hotel was great, we got upgraded to a better room and the staff were very friendly and nice, they helped us plan our stay in cape town. Some of the reviews on trip advisor mentioned that security was a problem but we had no problems. We enjoyed staying at the Cape Riveria so much we would love to go back and if we were to go to Cape Town again we would definitely stay here.

Le Prince Maurice 5

I have never stayed in such a luxurious hotel, we were amazed as soon as we arrived at the hotel, it was definielty paradiise. We stayed in a junior suite overlooking the fish reserve and the beach and it was so beautiful. The staff could not do enough for you, which we found a bit too much as we are not used to be waiting on so much, they even carried our breakfast bowls to our tables. The hootel offers a variety of activities and we tried as many as we could such as water skiing, windsurfing, boat trips and bike rides. The hotel has something for everyone and is definielty a hotel I would recommend for honeymooners.

Arathusa Safari Lodge 5

Staying at the Arathusa safari lodge was a highlight of our trip, when we arrived we were expecting quite basic accommodation but the lodge was amazing and not basic at all. The lodge we stayed in was stunning and this was just the standard lodge. The whole place had a great atmosphere and the food was amazing. I would definitely say you will not go hungry at Arathusa and I tried so many new foods, all delicious. The safari drives were great, our ranger was brilliant and we saw some amazing animals. My stay here so far has been the best holiday experience I have ever had not just because of the safari but the staff, accommodation and the food. We will definitely go back to Arathusa some day.

Staff Review 5

Greg was so helpful when I first contacted Mahlatini I didn't really know what I wanted for my honeymoon and Greg helped me put together the most amazing itenerary. I was quite nervous about going to South Africa and contacted Greg several times to ask many questions and he always answered my many questions and reassured me.
