Honeymoon Bliss – 4 nights Cape Town | 2 nights Franschhoek | 3 nights Timbavati
Tom and I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the work you did organising the holiday of a lifetime. Every step of the way was so wonderful and special. We can really put into words how grateful we are to you. Every single accommodation was incredible. The staff at Winchester were incredibly friendly and accommodating and the breakfast was exquisite – in particular we liked the prosecco with breakfast for making Buck’s Fizz. They also provided complimentary prosecco on arrived. The owner’s suite at Le Balloon Rouge was beautiful, we spent both nights enjoying the hot tub with incredible views. Reubens was a beautiful restaurant too.
Simbavati was absolute luxury too. The sheer amount we were given to eat was worth double the price, and it was great being assigned our own ‘butler’ and driver/tracker. Thabo and Bongs (tracker and driver) were in particular a great asset to the trip and it was wonderful eating dinner with them at the two barbecues the lodge held while we were there. It’s also a great touch that Thabo brought along a huge cask of drinks for stopping at sunset.
We honestly were not expecting to make friends at the safari lodge but we did. Bongi on reception also set up a beautiful table for a private honeymoon meal with prosecco and decorations for a stunning three course meal. The lodge was like a wonderful welcoming community and we felt tearful when we left. Shante also was our tour guide for both the Cape Point tour and the winelands tour and we really enjoyed it with her. She made the time so fun.
