Family holidays and safaris to Tanzania bring a wealth of exciting and memorable experiences which all family members can enjoy from seeing the wildebeest migration in the Serengeti and action-packed game drives in the Ngorongoro Crater to boating down the Selous's Rufiji River and enjoying a host of watersports and fun beach activities on the island of Zanzibar.

In keeping with our core values of providing luxury, tailored and entirely unique family holidays, our dedicated family holiday specialists have scoured Tanzania for the most personal and family-friendly accommodation. We like our families to avoid the crowds and the faceless chain lodges and stay in smaller and more personal lodges and camps which will be able to provide extra special care to you and your children including specially trained child-friendly guides and child minders. Often staff here will go out of their way to organise surprises, additional trips and special treats to really ensure this family holiday is completely unforgettable.

Overall, we had a wonderful time. Even though we had a hick-up with our flights, which were NOT planned by Mahlatini, Claire Picknell, our Mahlatini planner was very helpful in alerting the relevant contacts of our arrival time change.The Plantation Lodge was outstanding. In many ways, the trip exceeded our expectations. Thank you Claire Picknell.

Amazing lodges, guides, safaris. Well-organized. Incredible sights. We felt so well taken care of. And it felt very safe for me and my family. The guides worked hard to make sure we saw as much as possible. This was a life-changing trip.

This was an awesome experience and I would highly recommend Mahlatini Travel to others considering an Afican Safari! The lodging, food and service were top notch at all locations recommended by Mahlatini and we enjoyed every minute of our trip. All four Elewana properties that Donna Flynn set us up in were first class in luxury, unique and exhibited the same theme...outstanding food, utmost service, comfort and care…
