WHAT SOME OF OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING

Melissa Knight - UK

Hello Dawn Back to work now :o( but still thinking that only last week we were travelling to Plettenburg park! Our holiday was truly amazing and I am raving about your beautiful country to all my friends and family. Your service was inspirational - I've always been told you don't get something for nothing but Africa Awaits provided us with a hassle free itinerary, directions and peace of mind and lots of top touring tips.......and a bottle of champagne! Thank you so much! I was really pleased with the city - wine region - garden route coastline and game reserve range of accommodation. We felt we had a proper taste of what South Africa has to offer but look forward to discovering more on our next trip. Here's a few comments on our experiences.... Primi Royal So glad we got to stay in Camps Bay rather than cape town city. Would really recommend Blues for lunch! Primi was really nice although a lot smaller than the other hotels we stayed at! The 3 days in Cape Town we spent at Camps Bay, The Waterfront and Aquarium (which was amazing), Table Mountain (had great weather for views!) and Canal Walk (which wasn't so good and I wished we visited Robben Island instead). Bloomestate This guest house was beautiful and would be really nice in the summer as their heated pool was still way too cold for swimming in. The Jacuzzi was a highlight though as were the yummy breakfasts. The room was lovely and stylish but very cold and the air conditioner not really up for heating the room - bathroom had no heater in it at all. However the gardens and views were stunning and Neils and Miranda were wonderful hosts - they made us a lovely picnic to take to De Hoop park where we saw lots of whales. Really good value for money. We did pass through Franschok(?) which was a more picturesque wine region than the Robertson valley and would definitely recommend visiting here. Plettenburg Park This really was 5 star luxury (although the price did hint that it would be!). we had the best room in the hotel with the shower overlooking the sea! As it was so quiet we had dinner served in our room on the last 2 nights and felt like royalty. The service felt a bit too prim and proper at times but the room was so beautiful along with the beach and cliff top walks we didn't leave the hotel for 3 days! Gorah Camp Wow! This place was incredible. There was a huge party of American pensioners visiting which was obviously the reason we couldn't get in for our 2 nights stay! Gorah staff looked after us well and let us have our own table and range rover drives so we didn't have to make small talk with all the Americans! The stay here was very expensive but definitely worthwhile. Blaauwbosch Reserve We were the only people staying here so got the best room in the park which was very spacious and luxurious. Our guide Darren wasn't nearly as informative as Drickus at Gorah but quiet welcoming. The lodge was cosy and our meal served next to a warming open fire although we weren't given any choice of starter, main course or desert - luckily Chris and I aren't fussy eaters! We got to see a very different mix of animals compared to Gorah which was good although it really highlighted the difference between a nature reserve and game reserve. Thanks again so much for your help and warm welcome. We look forward to seeing you again. Best wishes.........
