One of the best holiday's we've had

South Africa between 15 Feb 2013 and 27 Feb 2013

Trip rating: Excellent
"Our trip was brilliant. We were really pleased with the accommodation choices that Expert Africa suggested and the trip all went extremely smoothly. We'd love to go back!

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

Perhaps in the informatino you provide before the trip, you could provide a bit more detail about restaurant and activity ideas in each area."

Acorn House

Acorn House

"Acorn House was great - very helpful staff"

4 nights Arrived 16 Feb 2013
"It was like having our own concierge - the staff were really great at helping us plan our time in Capetown, book restaurants for us, ring the hire car company when we had a problem etc.

The only downside was that it was a little way to the nearest restaurants - so while we could walk there, we had to take a taxi back when it was dark. Lovely area though.

Room was lovely although no air con and was the room got pretty hot when the weather was nice."

La Petite Ferme

La Petite Ferme

"La Petite Ferme was beautiful!"

2 nights Arrived 20 Feb 2013
"The complimentary cellar tour was the best cellar tour we've ever done - really interesting and personal.
The lunch was delicious.

We were really glad we splashed out on our deluxe suite. The private patio with plungepool and beautiful views was amazing.

I was a bit nervous about trip advisor reviews suggesting that the rooms were abit run-down. But while you could tell it was a little past its best, we weren't disappointed at all."

Phantom Forest

"Beautiful lodge"

2 nights Arrived 22 Feb 2013
"Treehouse suites were amazing. Lovely views, pool, bar.

The dinner in the evening was a little OTT - nice to have once or twice. Staying there for longer, it might have been a bit annoying either to have to eat the 6 course dinner every night or have to drive to Knysna to eat (given you have to get the staff to give you a lift down to your car).

There were some great walks in the forest. Would be helpful for reception to have a map of the trails in the area (they didn't when we were there). I think they assume that most people just do the standard 45min walk which is quite easy to follow. We went off onto some other trails for a longer walk, but were quite lucky in coming across a map on the trail to get us home again!"

Storms River Restcamp

Storms River Restcamp

"Basic but great location"

2 nights Arrived 24 Feb 2013
"As we expected, the cabin was quite basic, but absolutely fine. And definitely worth it in order to stay in that location.

Were surprised by how good the restaurant in the camp was. And the pool was really good (and unexpected) too."
