We had an amazing trip and our safari travel agency did an amazing job with setting up everything on the ground at our destination to make it feel like the vacation of a lifetime, especially as this was our honeymoon. The safari team was very courteous and made sure to check-in with us as needed and made sure to follow up on any special requests. Every hotel knew we were on our honeymoon and made us feel special. It was also great to have an itinerary given to us at each hotel upon check-in so we knew exactly which activities (dinner, sightseeing, etc.) we were doing.
Lukimbi Lodge and Safari at Kruger National Park: The Lukimbi staff was amazing and took care of us, especially given one of us was vegetarian. Key highlights include: Game Drives, Boma, Dinner inside the wine cellar to celebrate our honeymoon
Elephant Camp: The staff was very courteous and the camp was very nice, with AC, and a pool and hot tub in every room. Key highlights include: Boma, Elephant Back Safari, Drinks by the Zambezi Gorge
Cape Town: All the hotels were modern and well-kept. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and went out of his way to personalize certain elements for us based on our interest. The other major highlight was the Table Mountain hike.
We really enjoyed the Wineries at Franschhoek (top 3 were Fairview, Groot Constantia, and Babylonstoren), and this is coming from regular Napa visitors. We especially enjoyed dinner at Pot Luck Club and the chocolate tasting at DeVilliers was great. Delaire Graff was a great place for lunch, but would definitely recommend it more for the ambiance vs. the food. Our favorite restaurants this trip were: Ryan's Kitchen in Franschhoek and Chef's Warehouse & Canteen in Cape Town.
The trip was very well planned and hit all the highlights that we discussed. If we were to go again, we would want to go for a longer period of time and try to go to a Beach City for 2-3 days.
