Expert Africa know their stuff

South Africa between 10 Oct 2019 and 17 Oct 2019

Trip rating: Excellent
"We were most impressed by the excellent advice and subsequent travel arrangements made by Expert Africa for our South African holiday. The attention to detail which produced a superb written travel itinerary down to the smallest details such as driving instructions from hotel to hotel was outstanding. We really had the impression Claire had a complete understanding of our requirements and, most importantly, personal knowledge that informed her advice.

We'd have no hesitation in recommending Expert Africa to all and sundry."

City Lodge OR Tambo

"Efficient airport hotel"

1 night Arrived 10 Oct 2019
"The hotel is ideally situated within walking distance of arrivals and departure.

Reception was efficient, the room was satisfactory but we were disappointed by the quality of the evening meal. The breakfast buffet was fine."

The Plettenberg

The Plettenberg

"The Plettenberg doesn't disappoint"

3 nights Arrived 11 Oct 2019
"A very fine hotel that justifies it's five-star rating. The location is superb and, apart from surprisingly small swimming pools, every aspect is excellent.

We enjoyed first-class dining in the Seafood Restaurant, an exceptional concierge service that helped us plan our days (excursions including whale-watching) and which had no embarrassment recommending restaurants outside the hotel when we fancied a change. The staff at every level were quite delightful.

We thoroughly recommend Enrico's Ristorante at Main Beach Kueurboomstrand for a relaxed meal with locals."

Rothman Manor

Rothman Manor

"A quiet retreat in Swellendam"

1 night Arrived 14 Oct 2019
"Rothman Manor has more the atmosphere of a high-end B&B. That's not a complaint: merely a comparison between it and the other accommodation we enjoyed. The location's fine and the spread of rooms over the attractive site pleasant; our luxury room nice enough. Breakfast was adequate without being as varied and generous as elsewhere.

We can't praise Field and Fork at 26 Swellengrebel Street enough for outstanding food and congenial service."

Le Quartier Francais

Le Quartier Francais

"Le Quartier Francais deserves its stars"

2 nights Arrived 15 Oct 2019
"A superb hotel in this little tourist town that really lived up to its reputation. The breakfast was outstanding, room service excellent and the concierge a mine of useful information that really enhanced our short stay.

Plettenberg has more than its fair share of celebrity chefs and an excellent alternative for a more relaxed dinner was the excellent French Connection."
