2022 Honeymoon - Deferred from 2020!

South Africa between 29 Apr 2022 and 13 May 2022

Trip rating: Excellent
"A truly outstanding trip - one of a lifetime.

We cannot thank Lucy (our Expert Africa advisor) enough. Lucy did a truly remarkable job in very trying circumstances - as we had to defer the trip three times due to Covid. She managed these deferrals in exemplary fashion with remarkable, patience, good humour, resilience and integrity .Her recommendations and guidance in choosing locations was perfect as she clearly listened to our views and we felt in safe hands throughout.

The attention to detail and communication was second to none.

Exemplary!"

Arranged By Lucy Copson

Welgelegen Boutique Hotel

"Welgelegen Boutique Hotel review"

4 nights Arrived 30 Apr 2022
"A charming, well appointed and ideally located sanctuary for our visit to Cape Town.

Staff were lovely and eager to help - almost too eager in some circumstances!

A highlight was its safe proximity to excellent restaurants on Kloof St (Eg Black Sheep) which was under 5 minutes walk away."

Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve

Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve

"Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve review"

3 nights Arrived 4 May 2022
"A truly breath taking wilderness lodge set in stunning rugged beauty of rocky outcrops, and veld vegetation. Fantastic bird life and incredible flora.

Well worth the 3.5 hour drive from Cape Town passing citrus groves and stunning scenery which reveal the massive scale of the country - it is huge! Definitely worth the effort to get there!

The organisation, service, food and wine were out of this world. Staff were exceptionally helpful and engaging.

Stefan the sommelier was outstanding. Our guide Evan was the best field guide i have ever used. ( I have been on prior safaris in Tanzania, Nambia and Kwazulu Natal.) While Bushman's Kloof is not a safari lodge Evan's, knowledge of birds, flora , fauna as well as wild life was exceptional and a true highlight of our trip."
