The Dahm family have just returned home from a lovely African adventure and have been kind enough to share their experience with us here:
“The vacation was the best we’ve ever taken. My family said so many times, “Mom, you planned a perfect vacation. And I said well thank you to Iconic Africa! I would never have found these properties on my own.” Lauren, we absolutely LOVED both the Cape Grace Hotel and &Beyond Ngala. I truly don’t think it would be possible to have a better experience.
Cape Grace was so beautiful and it was a delight to stay in a unique property like that versus the big international hotels. The service was exemplary and every square inch of the hotel was gorgeous. Our suite was even better than expected and the photos on the website couldn’t capture how lovely and spacious it was. Of course we had a big terrace with beautiful views as well. Just perfect.
While we did love Cape Town and all the tours and sights, the safari was the highlight. What a magical experience. We had a fantastic guide with almost 20 years of experience – and saw the big Five every day – and so much more! Ngala was gorgeous, natural, comfortable, and the service was stellar. We did not expect gourmet food and elegant dinners! It was just perfect. I would highly recommend Ngala to anyone contemplating a safari. Not just the property but the reserve itself is so large, you never feel like you are surrounded by tourists, and SO MANY animals.
We also really enjoyed a couple of days in Camp’s Bay at the Bay Atlantic Guest House, which was a lovely and comfortable spot (gorgeous view of the beach and mountains and walkable to town – just perfect).
Also, the connections and flights, etc all worked out perfectly so appreciate the details you handled as well.
We have hundreds of pictures! I am making an album for our family.
We cannot thank you and Julia enough. Joe and I were a bit concerned about the cost of one vacation being so high but it was worth it. It will be a memory of a lifetime for us and for our children. The only concern is another vacation will never measure up! ”
A big thank you to Joanne for these wonderful words. We hope to see you on African soil again soon, soon!
