Ben and I have now returned to the UK and just wanted to say a big thank you to Cherie, Mellanie and yourself for all your help - we had the most wonderful honeymoon!! It was perfect - all of the accommodation was beautiful and the food stunning and we were made to feel so welcome everywhere we went.
Thanks for all your help.
Very best wishes

Rand Merchant Bank - South Africa
The weekend was exceptional. We had a fabulous time and would certainly recommend Etali to other people. Thank you also for your wonderful, efficient service.

Toyota South Africa - Fugitives Drift 

We had a superb weekend & feedback from all was very positive. Well done on all the arrangements! A World Class venue.

Tarryn (SA) - Etali

My weekend at Etali was fantastic! The service was flawless, the accommodation exquisite and the game excellent. Their attention to detail and wonderful hospitality made it possibly the best lodge we have stayed at! We enjoyed it so much that we decided to stay an additional night. I have already referred two other couples who are going in the next month or two ( i have given them your website details) and we will hopefully be returning in October.

One thing tho' - the map is not as comprehensive as it should be. More comprehensive directions should be given from joburg to magaliesburg :)
Aside from that not one complaint!

Dear Dawn Cherie and Mellanie,
Thanks to you all for your help in arranging one of the best holidays we have ever had. We crammed in a lot so it was hectic at times, but I wouldn't have missed a minute......
And that, alas, was our last stop. We were blessed with good weather for almost the entire trip and were fortunate to be the only guests staying at Three Tree, Fugitives and White Elephant, which probably made a bit of a difference to the experience and took the pressure off us to keep the children on tight leashes! We have vowed to return some day  - what a wonderful country you live in!
All the arrangements you made on our behalf worked out really well and your suggestions for accommodation were perfect as I am aware that the arrival of such a large contingent of little ones would not necessarily be welcome in every establishment! If/when we return I will get in touch with you. The service you provided was faultless - thank you so much!
