South Africa: Cape Town and Eastern Cape Safari
Oct 15 - Oct 25, 2023
Bianca was amazing to work with not only leading up to our big trip but was so helpful while we were there as well. She really put me at ease. We traveled to South Africa from Switzerland with 2 young kids (11 and 10) and with our parents who met us there from the United States. There was a lot of organising and planning to make this trip seamless. And it was exactly that...seamless and relaxing. We absolutely loved our driver and guide Graham in Cape Town and our guide Matthew at Kariega during the safari. I HIGHLY recommend using KimKim to plan the most amazing trip.
The Commodore had amazing views, good food, and friendly staff. The hotel itself is a but rundown and could use a minor facelift but overall it was great. The location was absolutely perfect for wandering around the V&A Waterfront.
This hotel is absolutely beautiful with the best view of the water. Unfortunately while we were there they were renovating the pool side restaurant which made it difficult to enjoy the poolside with all the noise and the blockage of entering the pool easily. The rooms were really big and very clean. The food was really good although the service was not. There were so many employees but for some reason everything took forever.
Kariega was AMAZING! We absolutely loved this part of our trip. Matthew was our guide and he was just the best. He was great with our kids, knowledgable about the reserve and animals, made us feel safe, he was funny and such a joy to spend 4 days with.
