Nikki knew she would build her career in the travel industry, having been struck by wanderlust from an early age. With over 20 years of industry experience, having worked for a major airline and independent travel agencies before joining Mahlatini. The specialism of the Mahlatini product portfolio was the biggest draw and, of course, the opportunity to develop expertise while travelling around her favourite continent.
Favourite Safari Animal
"The beautiful, but elusive leopard. A guide once told me that it's difficult to take a bad photograph of a leopard, but even more difficult to take a good one."
Sundowner Of Choice
"A cold glass of (as I call it) sparkles. From sparkling wine, to prosecco, to champagne... a glass of sparkles brings an added touch of indulgence to the day."
"Mara Plains Camp. It is simply exquisite, with exceptional service and guiding. The epitome of colonial safari luxury, with copper bath tubs and hand-picked antique furniture."
WHAT MY CLIENTS SAY
"Attention to detail is all important in a trip of this type and certainly all the interchanges were extremely well organised. Nikki, we had a wonderful trip for which we thank you very much."
"As always, I only needed to give Nikki a short quick spec and she put together an itinerary that ticked all the boxes. The extra touches were very gratefully received too - fruit bowl, note in the room, complimentary facial. "
"I have booked many holidays with Nikki over the last few years, and she is extremely professional. She knows what you are looking for and she will provide you with the right choices. Very satisfied as always."
Lovely and patient
"We cannot begin to capture in words how incredible our honeymoon was... and that was all down to the incredible organisation and support shown to us by our incredible advisor Nikki."
