Hi Ilze:

Happy New Year!

The trip was fantastic; the tours in Cape Town, Cape Point, and the lodges were great.

15 on Orange was a beautiful hotel but we did have some feedback. The service there needs work; the first day we thought we would have a quick lunch there and it took 3 hours to get out. On the last day there we ordered a simple room service meal (e.g. salads) and it took more than an hour to get the food. Worse was that the last night they had a big party with a loud band in the lobby. It was a shame because it is a beautiful facility and we loved it, but the service and party spoiled the overall impression.

A high point at the Mantobeni Honeyguide camp was Antoine; he was fantastic and the service and facilities at Shumbalala Game Lodge were wonderful.

Thanks again for arranging such a great trip!

Best, Paul
