    There is so much variety in this list. I’d be hard pressed to give you even a top-5 because I want to stay at all of them! Super helpful, thanks for sharing.

    We spent part of our honeymoon in coffee bay, a hike from Hole in the Wall to Coffee Bay was incredible – I have never felt such peace. It is still largely an untouched part of South Africa, and we found it very affordable to visit too!
