Off season Tailor-made Honeymoon to South Africa including Cape Town Waterfront – Wine Region – Hermanus – Oudtshoorn – Plettenburg Bay – Pumba Lodge Private Game Reserve 

Hi Simon,

Thank you for arranging our honeymoon to South Africa.

Cape Town – We enjoyed staying near the waterfront – great range of restaurants and good shopping mall on a wet day! Also easy access to Robben Island Tour and other Tours; (Red and Blue bus tours worthwhile including Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. We visited Cape Point and Boulder to see the penguins on the way to Stellenbosch. Cape Point is spectacular.

Stellenbosch – The wine tram – great tour. Choice of 6 vineyards to visit.

Hermanus – Great hotel right on the front. Worth buying binoculars to see the whales. Good cliff top walks from town. Few nice eating places. The Burgundy restaurant was great for both dinner and breakfast.

Oudtshoorn – Great drive through the mountains. Stopped off for lunch at Barrysdale – little place in the mountains. Visited ostrich farm and cango caves. Both quite touristy but interesting.  Didn’t have time to see the Meerkats.

Plettenberg Bay – Great views from hotel and coastline. Good walks along beach and cliffs. Can recommend the 5km walk round Robberg Island, the views were amazing. Saw seals and dolphins. Also went to visit a bird sanctuary nearby.

Pumba Game Reserve – Fantastic accommodation. We did all 8 drives and very worthwhile doing them all. Ranger was very knowledgeable and shared lots of facts and lots of stories. You got to see many different animals up close; white lions, elephants, cheetahs, wildebeest, impala, warthogs, giraffes, zebra. Many other animals and birds… Fantastic experience.

Driving in South Africa was easy. Our tour was a perfect mixture of scenery and visits. We felt like we saw it all..!

Thank you again for a wonderful holiday.

Kind regards,

Jennifer &  Alan R
