It was such an extraordinary trip - and we were so well taken care of by you guys - from the moment we landed on the ground in Jo’burg, until the moment we boarded the plane back to LA. Everywhere we went was so special in its own way - Sindabezi was such a beautiful start and their attention to detail was truly extraordinary. The dinner on the sampan, the picnic lunch, all the little details and lovely service in the room.
The andBeyond lodges were all so amazing. I'd say Nxabega had the best guides that we had the whole trip - AK and Equator - they were really special and fun and so enthusiastic about what they did - their love of their craft really showed through. And every night the lodge staff did something sweet honeymoon-wise, which we so appreciated even if we didn't always have room in our stomachs to consume it!
At Xudum the staff went above and beyond to do lovely honeymoon treats - drawing us a bath one night, with Amarula beside it, and creating an extraordinary honeymoon dinner layout complete with paper lanterns and a firepit and a chalkboard with our names on it. Oh! And we did this wonderful Makoro ride which ended at a floating pop-up bar with drinks and sundowner snacks in the middle of the reeds - amazing. We really were sad to leave each place.
And then Benguerra. How stunning. I have to say when we got there we realized we should have stayed a week! There's so much fun stuff to do that we were far from getting bored and it was so nice at the end of the trip to just chill and not be on too much of a schedule. The casinahs are spectacular and our butler Paolo was extraordinary.
The whole trip was really so special and so detailed and thoughtful; you guys were such great caretakers of our experience - from the moment we landed to the moment we left, we were in excellent hands. Thank you thank you for creating an extraordinary honeymoon - we are already thinking of what next trip we could do!
