Sea and Safari
Sea and Safari Peace and Solitude Just off the Garden Route Off the Beaten Track The Wild Coast

Nearly every visitor to the Eastern Cape wants to include a safari and a beach experience in their holiday plan. My choice of sea and safari destinations range from ultimate luxury to simply special. By viewing each of the destinations featured here you can create the combination that suits you best.

I have personally stayed in each destination and it has been their attention to detail that has made the difference in every case.

At the safari experiences the best Rangers are on hand and the game turns up as promised - the lion doesn't choose that day to have a headache. The intimate privacy of the accommodation harmonises the best of ultimate comfort with the feel and essence of Africa and no apologies come from the kitchen - there is no need.

My sea or beach destinations have been chosen on the basis of simplicity, setting and sincerity. They may be located at different points along the 900km. long coastline but will all offer a great beach holiday.

By blending the call of the wild with the draw of the ocean, you'll bask in the comfort of your surroundings and the hospitality and expertise of your hosts. You will chill out to the wonder and adventure associated with an authentic safari and the rest and relaxation of a seaside retreat.
