As joint owner and director, Chris manages Mahlatini's UK office and original HQ. His route to running a luxury African tour operator was not the most conventional; sparked by a friendship forged with Greg whilst travelling through South Africa. A degree in management and a masters in IT have proved useful foundations for growing an online business with a global client base.
Favourite Safari Animal
"It has always been the King of the Jungle... there is no substitute to watching lions in their natural environment. I still feel a primal fear and excitement every time I'm fortunate enough to watch these majestic beasts playing with their family, eating or sunning themselves."
Sundowner Of Choice
"Anything cold but a properly mixed drink on safari is always a highlight. A Whisky Sours, an Old Fashioned, a Margarita or anything with a splash of gin in it will always be my drink of choice as the sun sets. "
"To fuel my golf addiction, I keep returning to Fancourt along South Africa's beautiful Garden Route. With 3 quite different championship courses, it is great fun but also challenging. I'm always welcomed back like an old friend... it's my home away from home."
