We have talked up our trip to so many of our friends who followed us on Facebook and loved the pictures. They were amazed at just how much we accomplished during our 18 days “on the road”.
While, you weren’t involved Zurich was as wonderful time with our guide who really took care of us and help to make a fourteen hour layover, seem so much shorter.
Then on to Johannesburg for a few days and again our accommodations were first class and our pre-arranged tours really brought home just what was going on in South Africa “within our own lifetimes”. What a wake up call for us. Dining was first class as well.
Next, on to Cape Town where once again we were met at the airport as we were in Johannesburg and swiped away to a place that only the “Rich and Famous” visit. Delaire Graff Lodge is clearly a place to go if you wish to be catered too, pampered and made to feel like someone “very” special. The “Lodges” were unbelievable, getting up every morning walking out on your private deck, jumping into your private pool, which overlooks beautiful vineyards and the most spectacular mountain range, which is how we started our days. Arriving in the dining area you were tempted with an unbelievable selections of food for break, lunch and/or dinner. O, yes and of course you got your morning itinerary personalized with your names and many wonderful suggestions for things to do for the day. Of course, you never had to make reservations for dinner, that was done for you at a number of very fine restaurant…of course the choice was always up to you. Just think about spending a day wine tasting or involved in another adventure in the immediate area and arriving back to “The Lodge” and having the wonderful folks working the front desk get up, stop what they are doing and come to you, to greet you and ask you how your day went and was there anything else they could do for you. Finally, everyday at 5 pm, the guest would assemble out by the pool and enjoy cocktails and a bit of food. What a wonder way to watch the sunset and enjoy your “sundowner”.
