Its over eighteen months since we were on our honeymoon in SA.I really should have posted this review before now but i suppose better late than never.We flew into Durban airport got our hire car and drove the 3 hour(approx) trip to St. Lucia.We were very pleasantly surprised by the high quailty of the roads and the considerate driving of the SA people(far easier country to drive in than most european countries).When we got to St lucia we were both very tired and very hungry so we decided to stop for something to eat in one of the restaraunts on the main street where we got a lovely meal for a very resonable price,I can honestly say we never had a bad meal in our three weeks in SA.When we got to the Zulani guest house which was easy to find we met June who turned out to be an absolutely wonderful host,we stayed in the honeymoon suite which was beautiful and had choclates and champayne,June was unbelievably helpful during our stay organising all our trips as well as making packed lunches for us on the all day safari.I really cant speak highly enough of June who let us use her beautiful home and the things in it as if they where our own.I forget the name of the man who took us on the safari but he was brilliant as well, we got to see all of the big 5 which was amazing.
After we left St lucia we flew to PE drove the garden route over the course of 5 or 6 days,stayed in the winelands,camps bay and finally finshed up staying on the V&A waterfront for the last few days,it was all brilliant but i must say nowhere did we recieve as warm a welcome and enjoy ourselves as much as much as we did in Zulani and St Lucia (some of the other places we stayed in cost 5 times as much to stay in).
I have never had as good a time in any country as i had in SA everything was perfect,i was a bit worried before we went about the safety but we never had any problems.I cant reccomend June and the Zulani high enough and when we go back to SA we will defintly be staying there again.
