Travel reviews by Dr & Mrs T from Kent

Relaxing and interesting holiday

On this trip, I visited South Africa between 25-Nov-2012 and 12-Dec-2012 and I travelled with 1 other person.

Overall my trip experience was:


We really enjoyed our first trip to S Africa and would really recommend it.

Wonderful scenery and lots to do. We stayed in lovely hotels and had great food and wine. We also saw some of the problems the country has, and learned much more about its recent political evolution and past history. We also enjoyed the wildlife with whales, dolphins, seals and penguins. The Fynbos was really amazing to see with incredible flowers wherever you looked whilst the remnants of indiginous forest were remarkable.

Our abiding memory will be of the kindness and good humour of the people we met, often living in such difficult circumstances surrounded by such affluence; unsettling and inspiring at the same time.

Suggestions to help us improve our trips or our service:

We have travelled twice with you now and been impressed. You get what you pay for. We will be back.
