Amazing trip in South Africa!

We had an amazing trip ,the book, the gps and mobile phone made the travelling so easy . We would have changed 1 or 2 things Knysna no stopover and stayed longer in the Africa Inn which we all loved . We thought before we left that we would have preferred to stay at Buffkesdruft but Africa Inn for us was better and stunning views from our veranda . Tsitsikamma was spoiled by the weather also 2 nights too long in my opinion .the Bayflower b&b was fab and Naomi was soooo helpful and friendly without being intrusive .Villa Venusta was probably the cleanest B&B we ever experienced anywhere in the world with great decor apart from the golf theme and great outside pool area The piece de resistance was River Bend Lodge u kept the best til last ! It was amazing ,accommodation food safaris and staff especially Elias Moses and Adrian . We can't say enough about the place a bit of the garden of Eden I think !! We had a smooth hitch free trip all thanks to your people thanks for making it do special .Definitely do something with you again and woukd not hesitate to recommend you to family and friends .
