We will definitely use KimKim for our next trip.

The ebiking was a bit of a challenge for me but I appreciated the opportunity. I loved Gold restaurant and getting to try so many different kinds of food. Each of our accommodations were perfect and so cute. All the rooms were clean and beautiful. The one in Hermanus had the most amazing view and Oude Werf was a palace! Overall it was a phenomenal first taste of Africa!
