Trip of a lifetime

South Africa between 1 Apr 2016 and 14 Apr 2016

Trip rating: Excellent
"Overall we had an amazing trip, such a shame that the Larids lodge didnt live up to the standard of the rest of the trip.

Our agent Claire who we booked the trip through was SO helpful and couldn’t have done more. Her advice was invaluable and very worthwhile."

Camps Bay Retreat

Camps Bay Retreat

"What a delighful retreat"

4 nights Arrived 1 Apr 2016
"What a lovely place this is. We stayed in the main house and loved our room.

The food was great and in fact it was the best steak we tasted on our whole trip. We would recommend Camps Bay Retreat although the view of the crane in the middle of the back garden vista in not ideal."

Kwandwe Great Fish River Lodge

Kwandwe Great Fish River Lodge

"Kwandwe Great Fish River Lodge review"

3 nights Arrived 8 Apr 2016
"This place is the most amazing place we have ever stayed.

From the staff to the accommodation to the food and overall experience, we couldn’t have asked for any more.

I would highly recommend Kwandwe to anyone and can’t wait to go back one day."

Lairds Lodge

Lairds Lodge

"A bit of a let down"

2 nights Arrived 11 Apr 2016
"The lodge wasn’t quite what we were excepting. We had paid for the upgraded room which was in an out building at the back of the property. The room seemed new although the furnishing seemed out of place.

There seemed to be a slightly strange atmosphere with the staff and when asking why the wi fi didn't work in our room we were told to stand outside and it would work.

The bathroom window was also left open by the cleaner so by the time we returned in the evening from a day out we were eaten alive by mosquitoes.

The breakfast was ok but the lady asking what our plans were for the day acted like she was on commission for us to go to certain restaurants or places of interest.

It wasn't the kind of place we were looking for on our honeymoon."

"What a lovely place to finish our honeymoon"

1 night Arrived 13 Apr 2016
"A lovely hotel and a beautiful room with amazing sea views. The hotel manager took us on a tour of the hotel and made us feel very welcome.

The hotel was very well positioned and we felt very spoilt. The fish restaurant and breakfast was amazing, we just wish we had stayed for two nights rather than one.

I also had a pedicure that was lovely and my nails three weeks later still look great."
