Orla and Damien and I spent a while back in March fine tuning what they wanted for their Honeymoon tour of Cape Town and the Garden Route. They wanted some time to be structured with tours and a lot of free time to do what they wanted. The end result was the Honeymoon of their dreams.
They spent two days in Cape Town with me visiting Table Mountain, Robben Island, the Peninsular, for them the highlights were Table Mountain and The Yellow Mellow Water Taxi between Kalk Bay and Simon’s Town. They had two days on their own to explore Cape Town at their leisure, which they enjoyed thouroughly.
We were treated to a true South African Braai at Louise’s,(our mutual friend) which they enjoyed hugely. For the first leg of their Garden Route Tour they stayed at The Sir David Guest House in Blaauwberg, so as you can see we took Sir David himself out on some or our jaunts.
When it came time to take our leave of the Sir David Guest House we were compelled, sadly to say a fond fair well to Sir David and take the Cape Splendour Traveling Suitecase and head off to Botlierskop Private Game Reserve, which they enjoyed absolutely thoroughly! I left them Orla and Damien there for two nights and made my way to Mossel Bay. The Highlight for me was a game of golf at Pinnacle Point, What a Pleasure!.
Cape Splendour Traveling Suitcase
After two days at Botlierskop I collected the happy couple and headed off to Hermanus where I left them to relax and enjoy the quaint village with it’s shops, Whales and really good cuisine. I was fortunate enough to take my Traveling Suitcase for an over night site inspection of The Mosaic Farm in Standford…What a delightful experience that was! On the way back to Cape to Cape Town we stopped off at La Vierge for a bit of wine tasting and then took the scenic route back to Cape Town, stopping along the way to visit the Penguin Colony at Stoney Point which is really worth the small detour, there are hundred of Penguins and the scenery is lovely.
I dropped Orla and Damien at the Primi Sea Castle in Camps Bay for the last leg of their stay and arranged for them to go Paragliding on the Saturday, which they really enjoyed thoroughly. I collected them on Sunday and took them to Kirstenbosch Gardens and Groot Constantia for a final bit of the Cape’s Natural beauty and history. I was sad to say good bye to Orla and Damien, and they were pretty sad to leave our beautiful Mother City, I am sure they will be back!
