On hearing I would be taking a small group of journalists to South Africa for a week … I was torn. Torn between being totally excited to be staying in some of the country’s top boutique hotels or the simple pleasure of getting a rare full night’s sleep. As mum to 3 boys (including 2 year old twins!) a full night’s sleep sounded like a major highlight.
Having boarded our plane in Cape Town both Paul and I expected to leave the sunshine behind us - but oh no - on arrival into George airport it appeared that the sun wanted to come too! Excellent. This was my first time to the Garden Route and I was very excited. Particularly as I was to be staying at The Manor House at Fancourt! How decadent.
The meal at Mange Tout was amazing. We had some incredible food on this trip, but this meal was probably the most memorable – especially the Chocolate Fondant!
