vacation to South Africa & MozambiqueEric Ribbeck, 12th June 2023
This was truly a trip of a lifetime. We loved each experience along the way and were very thankful for the amazing recommendations from Karen. The whole trip was seamless, every detail of every transfer was thought through and executed flawlessly.
Victoria & Alfred Hotel
“Great hotel with a good location. It was under construction when we were there but it wasn't an issue. The front desk/concierge was very helpful in recommending and scheduling a tour for us when our previous plans were ruined by rain.”
Le Quartier Francais
“Truly the best hotel I've ever stayed in. The staff was so attentive in ensuring our stay went smoothly - everything from scheduling wine estate visits, making dinner recommendations and reservations, or helping light the fireplace in our room. The rooms were immaculate, luxurious, and cozy, all at the same time.”
Kambaku River Sands
“An incredible safari experience from start to finish. We felt so welcome and comfortable the entire time. The game drives were always filled with interesting sightings and lessons from our guide and tracker. The lodge itself was very nice, including our room and all the common areas. I loved the concept of sharing meals with the whole lodge at the end of each day to swap stories. This is a place I will recommend to anyone and everyone who asks.”
White Pearl Resorts
“Did not love this place from the start. The transfer in (and also flying into Maputo) was really not a good start to this part of our trip. We strongly considered leaving the first night but ended up sticking it out. Overall, once we got over the uneasiness from the location and surrounding area, the place was okay, but still wasn't for us.
The concept of the butler was an interesting idea and in theory, was a great luxury, but really wasn't done very well. Whenever we wanted something (a drink, a meal, a snack) we would have to track down our butler, who could be anywhere in the whole resort, rather than just having a waiter or server available in the relevant areas. We found it more of a nuisance than a luxury to be honest.”
“Karen was super helpful during the whole planning process, we went through a few iterations of our trip and she was great in finding us the right final itinerary. She was always responsive, even many months before our trip.”
