Dear Brian and Mike
Everything went without a hitch - the flights the car hire hotel reservations all ran smoothly thanks to you.
We thought you might like a resume on the places we visited and the hotels you booked on our behalf.
We loved Cape Town and the Waterfront and the Victoria & Alfred hotel exceeded our expectations. We found the management and the staff welcoming and helpful, the breakfast was superb and the view from our room overlooking Table Mountain was spectacular.
Franschoek was delightful and the Holden Manz Wine Estate superb. The room was large and comfortable and the views from our terrace over the vineyards was spectacular. The breakfast and afternoon tea was of a high standard and we can't speak highly enough of the way Lemeck looked after us during our stay. We ate on the first night at the Franschoek Kitchen, the restaurant you recommended on the estate, the food and the wine was excellent and in such a glorious setting, we felt we couldn't ask for any more and decided to eat there again the following night.
The journey through the Franschoek pass and over the Overberg was stunning. It was a long journey, but worth every minute for the spectacular scenery it offered.
We loved the scenery of Wilderness and the view from our sea facing room at the Views Hotel was just breathtaking. We found all the staff friendly and helpful and the meals were of a good standard.
If we visit this area again, we think we would prefer to stay at Knysna as we found Plettenberg itself, to be a bit soul-less, although we appreciate it has a wonderful stretch of sand and is well placed for visiting all the many wonderful nature attractions in the area.
The scenery along the route to Lalibella through the Tsitiskamma National Park was stunning and the Lentaba Lodge didn't in any way disappoint - it was fabulous with glorious scenery all around us. The manager, Lauren, and all her team were friendly and welcoming - the game ranger, Bradley, was very knowledgeable and we had close encounters with rhinos lions elephants giraffes zebras wildebeest antelopes and so many more!!! The meals at the Lodge were plentiful and of a high standard and the drinks flowed - we met lots of interesting fellow guests and had such a great time,
Hope our comments and opinions are of some use to you.
All that remains now is to thank you for organising a trip of a lifetime on our behalf.
